Our mission as a Bates College club and a chapter of Habitat for Humanity is to establish an avenue for Bates students to make a lasting, visible impact in the lives of those in need of decent, affordable shelter in the Lewiston/Auburn community and throughout New England.

We build locally and abroad, partnering with organizations like Rebuilding Together and Habitat for Humanity. We also do independent work in Lewiston on smaller projects. Any community member can request our help with small-scale renovation or repair work throughout the year. Our goal is to allow Bates students many opportunities to constructively interact with the Lewiston/Auburn community and communities across New England. At the end of each trip, there should be a visible difference in the project and in the lives of the partnering families and students.

We put on weekly fundraisers with the Habitat Waffle Haus by selling late-night waffles to hungry students in Pettengill and elsewhere around campus. Our larger fundraisers include an international dodgeball tournament and a haunted house. The goal of these fundraisers is to provide awareness for our cause, have fun, and raise funds for build trips.
