Habitat for Humanity - New York City

Habitat NYC Young Professionals Network

Habitat NYC Young Professionals Network



The Habitat Young Professionals (HYP) Network is a network of emerging leaders raising awareness, money, and volunteers for Habitat for Humanity New York City (Habitat NYC).

HYP’s mission is to develop and empower the next generation of leaders to combat poverty and create opportunity through affordable homeownership for low-income families.

Seeking to fill the engagement gap between Habitat Campus Chapters and established leaders who have historically supported Habitat NYC, HYP engages New Yorkers between 21 and 40 years of age through a combination of social networking, education, advocacy, and fundraising events.
