Habitat Young Professionals

Habitat Young Professionals New York City (HYP NYC) is a membership-based initiative comprised of industry and community leaders, who leverage their skills and engage their networks in support of Habitat NYC. Through advocacy and fundraising efforts, HYP NYC members work to actualize Habitat NYC’s mission to build a city – and world – where everyone has a decent place to live.

Connect

“My experience with HYP NYC made New York City feel like home for the first time. This is more than a volunteer initiative, HYP NYC is a community of leaders utilizing their skills and leveraging their networks to bring Habitat NYC’s vision to life. I’ve been able to take what I’ve learned and apply it to my work abroad.”

—Mohammad Ali, 2018 HYP NYC Board Member

Service has always been an important part of my life, from the work my parents did in West Africa when I was growing up to my involvement in community service during college. I feel like whatever your day job is, there’s always a way to leave the world a better place than it was before. I joined HYP NYC because I believe strongly in Habitat NYC’s mission of transforming lives and communities by building and preserving quality, affordable homes with families in need, and by uniting New Yorkers around the cause of affordable housing – and I want to do whatever I can to support it.

My journey with Habitat for Humanity started over thirteen years ago in Pacoima, California where my friends and I volunteered our weekends with Habitat and witnessed first-hand Habitat’s unique model around sweat equity (a hand up, not a handout) to provide affordable housing. I am passionate about leading the talented HYP NYC board, transforming the lives of hard-working New Yorkers in need of affordable housing, and advocating on behalf of these communities in partnership with government agencies and philanthropic donors.
