HUD Buffalo Office Builds Homes with Habitat for Humanity
Staff from HUD's Buffalo Field Office worked for the second time at a Habitat for Humanity project on a tree-lined street near the Niagara River to help build a home for a family in need. The volunteer team included representatives from each of HUD's "big four" program areas: Housing, Public Housing, Community Planning and Development, and Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, who worked alongside one another to install drywall and insulation in a home that will eventually be inhabited by a hardworking family. Families receiving Habitat homes contribute "sweat equity" during construction, ensuring that they are invested in both the home and the community. The Buffalo Office organizes volunteer days quarterly, allowing staff to see first-hand the impact of providing quality housing in accordance with HUD's Mission.
