Habitat for Humanity is pleased to announce its new partnership with Rotary International. Rotary brings together a global network of members and volunteer leaders dedicated to tackling the world’s humanitarian challenges.

The partnership will facilitate collaboration between local Rotary clubs and local Habitat for Humanity organizations, expanding Habitat’s volunteer pool by tapping into Rotary’s 1.2 million members in 200 countries and regions.

“The values of our organizations are so closely aligned, and the desire to help others runs deep for both groups. That makes us such a perfect match,” said Habitat for Humanity International CEO Jonathan Reckford. “So many Rotarians have worked alongside Habitat and the knowledge, experiences and connections that are so strong in local Rotary clubs will make them valuable Habitat partners in many communities worldwide.”

Like Habitat, Rotary works to improve lives at both the local and international levels.

“Habitat’s aim to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope aligns perfectly with Rotary’s commitment to make positive, lasting change in communities around the world,” said Rotary General Secretary John Hewko. “With Habitat’s expertise and the power of Rotary’s volunteer network, we will help build the foundation for stronger communities.”
