On April 13th Habitat for Humanity of Catoosa County (HFHCC) launched their new website at catoosahabitat.org. The website was built in collaboration with Firespring, a website design company, who engineered the look of catoosahabitat.org. “We wanted to engage the millennial crowd, especially with online giving.” said Penny Mahon, HFHCC’s Executive Director. “Millennials are always online and with the new website we can better engage them to become involved with Habitat.”
HFHCC also wants their new website to increase their visibility in the community and give people the chance to learn more about their affiliate. On the website visitors will be able to read about the different programs at HFHCC, give a one-time or monthly donation to the affiliate, and be informed of volunteer opportunities in their area. “This website is just one part of the revitalization of our affiliate to better serve Catoosa County.” said Penny. HFHCC is also starting a new fundraising initiative entitled “Adopt-a-House Sponsorship” where local business can give donations at various levels to help in the building of a new home. Investing in the Adopt-a-House sponsorship with HFHCC is a way for organizations to give back to their community in a very visible and tangible way.
“Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope” quoted Penny. “With our revitalization efforts we hope to expand on that mission in Catoosa County.” All the new programs at Catoosa Habitat are designed to engage the community in the mission of Habitat and to bring in new volunteers to their cause.
