4 Habitat contact

** Sponsored by Affordable Equity Partners **

In this exciting project, 4-H'ers "adopt" a family who will be purchasing a Habitat for Humanity home. As part of a design team, youth work directly with the family to furnish and landscape their new home.   Learning opportunities focus primarily on the interior design process and improving energy efficiency through both interior finishes and landscaping.  Additional teams provide other components such as sewing, art projects, cooking, and a website to track the progress of the project. The possibilities are endless!

The project was piloted in Columbia, Missouri with coordination and support by Missouri 4-H, University of Missouri Architectural Studies Extension and Show-Me Central Habitat for Humanity.
