Habitat for Humanity | Richmond, Kentucky
March 11 - 17

For the ASB 2018 trip, we will be spending a week working with Habitat for Humanity through their Collegiate Challenge Program. Students will go from hitting the books to hitting the nails and commit a week of their personal time to building safe, affordable housing. 

Students will not only work for a week to build housing and make a difference, they will also learn about substandard living conditions and how affordable housing can build strength, stability and self-reliance for homeowners. The lessons you learn on this trip will carry with you far into the future and the good friends and fun times you have will be memories to last a lifetime.
