AmeriCorps members contribute to the growth of nonprofit organizations nationwide. Members commit to an intensive year of service in schools, community and faith-based organizations, and public agencies in order to tackle some of the nation's largest problems. Nationally, Habitat for Humanity is one of AmeriCorps' most active partners with more than 8,000 members serving with Habitat affiliate since 1994, meeting the needs of more than 20,000 families and engaging more than 3.1 million volunteers in our mission. Each year, AmeriCorps members help our affiliate increase our efficiency and impact by engaging the Pittsburgh community in our mission, developing partnerships with local organizations, and by bringing new ideas and perspectives to the table.
