Habitat For Humanity

Pitt-Johnstown’s Habitat for Humanity chapter is a non-profit, service-driven campus organization specializing in building houses in areas surrounding Johnstown.

During the annual Spring Break trip, the group travels to help build an ongoing project somewhere in the United States. Assisting with the building of affordable, modern housing for those in need is the main goal for the chapter, along with the self-described "Christian housing ministry," and addressing the issues of poverty housing all over the world.

The group also dedicates time and effort to educate UPJ students on its mission to help local poverty through local volunteer opportunities. Since its inception in 2003, the campus chapter has had over 750 members, logged more than 13,000 hours of volunteer work, and has taken part in 11 Spring Break trips.
