HouseWalk

In its early days, Habitat for Humanity staged numerous long walks to bring attention to the new ministry. In 1983, there was a 700 mile walk from Habitat’s headquarters in Americus, Georgia to Indianapolis in celebration of Habitat’s 7th Anniversary. In October of that same year, a group of dedicated volunteers launched an unstoppable movement to raise awareness in support of the critical housing issues facing the Centre-Clearfield-Clinton county region. It took a little more than one year to raise funding, secure a property, identify a qualified partner family, and recruit hundreds of willing volunteers to provide the hands-on volunteer labor needed. The first home, located in Bellefonte, was dedicated in 1985. 

Since then, the organization has served over 70 families by building/renovating homes for our first-time homebuyer program. Additionally, as part of HFHGCC’s affiliation with Habitat for Humanity International, we have helped to support another 86 families internationally through our annual tithe contribution. That means the local affiliate has collectively helped more than 150 families in our 30+ year history!

With 2017 support, we just finished a renovation project in Milesburg and acquired a lot for a new construction project planned for early 2018.  

Just like the old days, we’re still staging walks. HouseWalk 2018 will take place Sunday, April 15th at Tudek Memorial Park. Please join us as we raise public awareness for the region’s housing issues and funding for HFHGCC's 2018 programs.

Register here, then set up an individual or team fundraising page and share!
