 Habitat for Humanity-We build homes in both Forrest and Lamar counties. We use volunteers to do 99% of the manual labor on each home. This allows a family in our program to purchase their Habitat home at the cost of the supplies, because the manual labor was donated! If you are looking for a hands-on way to powerfully impact the Hattiesburg community, look no further.

Tutor Finacial literacey-very month, Friends for Financial Freedom offers a 10-hour financial literacy course. The class meets five (5) times for a duration of two hours per session. Classes are typically small, with 5-12 participants. Course content focuses on budgeting, saving, avoiding money traps (e.g., payday loans, car title loans), and preventing thoughtless spending. 

Instructors are needed to teach the financial literacy course. Instruction involves familiarizing yourself with the content, and using examples and stories to explain the content to class participants. Classes are also heavily oriented toward discussion and getting the participants involved so they can easily relate the content to their situation.

 R3SM Clean up Crew

Calling all neat freaks! Volunteer repair teams provide much-needed renovations to damaged homes, but often have no time for clean-up. We would greatly appreciate assistance cleaning up the remains of the demolition process. Estimated time to complete the project with 8-10 volunteers is about 4 hours from the start of work. 

Since this is a private property, volunteers are required to pre-register on site with R3SM at the Volunteer House (301 Buschman St. Hattiesburg). Contact Alex Corban to get involved with this project!
