Habitat for Humanity Taos has built 30 houses to date serving 30 families with over 86 members. Taos Habitat has tithed enough money to build over 10 homes for people in Mexico. VolunTourism Initiative: Are you or your company, college or church group looking for a way to making a difference while creating a one-of-a-kind and lasting experience for your team members? Habitat’s unique program is being touted as “VolunTourism,” an opportunity for organizations to volunteer, while they have an organizational retreat in one of the most beautiful areas in the country. It can be typical that team building or corporate retreats are missing valuable contribution. Why not merge the two worlds and give organizations an incredible experience and one that they’ll walk away from knowing they really made a difference – not only for their organizations but for a family – forever. Looking for a wonderful team building or group activity? Habitat for Humanity of Taos fills an important need in the Taos community, were 90 percent of the population cannot afford to purchase a home because Taos’ average home price is $325,000. Most of the home building is done by volunteers. Paid professionals to oversee work include licensed plumbers, electricians and construction supervisors. It’s not uncommon for our volunteers to tell us “This experience changed my life.” If you would like more information on this unique opportunity, please contact the Habitat for Humanity of Taos office.
