A day for grassroots action throughout the world, starting in your community
In December 1985, the United Nations General Assembly declared the first Monday in October to be World Habitat Day.
- To call attention to the need for better shelter around the world.
- To let it be known that affordable, adequate housing should be a priority everywhere.
- To change the systems, policies and attitudes that lead to poverty housing, and involve partners in solutions.
World Habitat Day is on Monday, Oct. 7, 2013.
Habitat for Humanity supporters will join with supporters of adequate shelter around the globe will participate in special activities that highlight the need for safe, decent and affordable shelter.
By advocating for universal decent housing, we seek to alter the systems that reinforce poverty housing and to make affordable housing a reality for all.
SENH with celebrate World Habitat Day with the launch of Nickels to Nails. Please see below.
In partnership with Saltwater Integrated Creative Agency (www.saltwaterco.com) SENH will celebrate World Habitat Day. Nickels for Nails is a youth-led fundraising initiative that will mobilize youth to raise funds to build homes for sponsor families in NH. The mission of the event is to educate students on the housing crisis here in New Hampshire. While at the same time raising funds to help build a home here.
Make a difference through Nickels for Nails and see first-hand how donating extra change can make a life-altering difference for one deserving family. Teachers, youth group coordinators and students will receive a coin collection container for their classroom along with a guide on starting a successful fund drive. Teachers can also download curriculum plans to educate their students about the growing housing crisis and how everyone can help in the cause. The group who raises the most funds during the drive will be eligible to win a prize and be recognized by Southeast NH Habitat for Humanity.
After a Youth Build On The 19th and the Blessing of the Bikes on the morning of the 20th, 35 riders will start their cross-country trek . Habitat hopes to receive a grant for our participation in this amazing event.

Thanks to the help of John Hancock employees, loam and sod has been laid out at our buildsite in Rochester. The front door for the back unit was painted black, while a few other doors were painted white, and the bulkheads were painted a gray color to match the buildings. In Unit B, the upstairs interior walls were framed and, finally, most of the roof rafters are up. Want to help on a build? Visit VolunteerUP to sign up or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
