Habitat for Humanity Student Build
Over the last four years, CDS students have raised funds and worked on building sites to sponsor an Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity home every two years. Involvement with Habitat for Humanity gives students an opportunity to nurture a love for their community and develop an awareness of the need for affordable housing. Students learn real-world skills and make a lasting impact.
“I chose to get involved in the Habitat for Humanity Student Build Program because it's a group that not only helps people all around the world, but also allows me the opportunity to help change a family's life from our own community for the better.” —Hannah Matin '19
