The University of Alabama Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapter in its current operation was chartered in Fall 2012. In response to outreach from students looking to get involved, Habitat Tuscaloosa sought to engage students on campus, in addition to on the worksite, in the office and the ReStore. A group of high motivated students were recruited to establish a student organization that will represent the affiliate on campus.

University of Alabama students Erica Sucher, Patrick Jaeger, Emily Forristel, Alex Jones and Neil Patel fearlessly volunteered to serve as the student leadership team, the first executive board. Their ambition and enthusiasm was essential to developing the identity of the Campus Chapter in the 2012-2013 school year. The challenges they faced in their first year will serve as the foundation for the organization’s success in the 2013-2014 school year.

They look forward to partnering with the affiliate to:

  • coordinate student volunteers to build on worksites, 
  • advocate for Habitat for Humanity as an affordable housing solution
  • educate the campus community on the challenges low incomes families face in the securing safe, decent affordable housing
  • raise funds for new home construction, neighborhood revitalization and for global commitments.
