IRHFH Hosts Student Volunteers

(IRHFH) will host students from different colleges during their spring break to help build or rehabilitate homes for families in need of affordable housing in Gifford and Oslo Park.

The students are participating in Habitat for Humanity’s national alternative break program, Collegiate Challenge.  This year, the colleges who will participate in Indian River are West Michigan University, Penn State, University of Kentucky, Lexington, Gainesville State and West Georgia.

“We at IRHFH always look forward to our version of “March Madness” when we play host to college groups from around the country. Their youthful enthusiasm, physical strength and agility enable us to get so much accomplished in such a short timeframe,” said Andy Bowler, President/CEO of IRHFH.  “This year, not only will they work on new homes, but they will play a big role in the “Rock the Block Around the Clock” project, which is part of the Gifford Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative (NRI) program. You’ve got to admire these students for giving up their spring break to serve needy families here in Indian River County.  My only regret is that they can’t stay longer with us!”  Read more>>

2014 Rock the Block
Around the Clock

Indian River Habitat for Humanity is pleased to announce its first ever Rock The Block (Around The Clock) event. This momentous undertaking will focus on providing change within the Gifford Community. This March, 12+ homes will undergo painting, landscaping and minor repairs throughout the month, creating noticeable change and increasing momentum for IRHFH's Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative (NRI) program.

An undertaking of this magnitude will require a lot of help from the Indian River County community in the form of financial sponsorship, volunteer engagement and donations of food for meals and snacks.

Rock the Block will kick off on March 1st at 8:00 am. Mini-celebrations will be held each Saturday and a Block Party and Celebration is scheduled to begin on April 5 at 11 am. We hope you, your business, church, civic group or organization will join us and become part of the change.
