National Service Blitz
Three "branches" of Habitat service joining forces to honor our veterans and impact Central Texans.
Our affiliate is thrilled to be hosting a week-long inaugural military-focused event in partnership with Habitat for Humanity International’s Habitat AmeriCorps program and Veterans Build Initiative! This effort is expected to bring over 200+ Habitat representatives and volunteers from affiliates across all 50 states to our Central Texas Community to make a lasting impact.
“National Service Blitz” will take place the week leading up to National Armed Forces Day as a celebration of national and military service and to bring attention to the issues of safe, affordable housing in the U.S. Roughly 150 AmeriCorps members and 100 Veterans Build volunteers will serve alongside veterans to collectively impact the local community’s housing needs.
7 Home Builds in Bell County
We will be blitz building two homes on Northside Dr. in Harker Heights, two Killeen homes, and three homes in. Temple, with our military blended families!
Veteran Service Engagement
Habitat representatives are traveling from all 50 states to unite and collaborate on best practices for serving those who have served. Guests will hear from veterans who are currently serving, from those who have already retired their boots, and local/state/federal veteran service organizations.
Local partnership involvement/experience
Our guests will get to experience a guided tour of Fort Cavazos, two veteran home dedications during the closing ceremonies "block party", and a Town Hall on Friday!
Our local partners will get to experience Habitat's mission during two dedicated media blitz days, a DEI focused dinner, and veteran service engagement during the conference.
