Why We Do It

Housing prices in Austin continue to rise, making it harder for hardworking families to buy or rent. Austin Habitat offers them the opportunity to buy an affordable home, helping keep Austin the diverse and vibrant city that we love.

Habitat Young Professionals is a subgroup of the greater Austin Habitat chapter with the goal of helping the organization’s fundraising, advocacy, and home building efforts. In addition to providing social and networking opportunities for members, the HYP board sets fundraising and advocacy goals at the beginning of the year and strategizes how they’ll be met by year end. The HYP President holds a non-voting role on the greater Austin Habitat board and reports quarterly on progress being made on the goals established.
