About CUA Habitat

The Campus Chapter of Habitat for Humanity at The Catholic University of America was founded in 1997. The mission of our organization is to spread the love of Habitat and help students become lifelong advocates for adequate and affordable housing for all.  Students can help bring simple, decent housing to families in the DC area and nationwide in various ways, including day builds, weekend retreat builds, and spring break trips!

Our chapter grown rapidly since it was founded.  We now offer day build trips on 2 Saturdays per month, 2 annual fall retreats, 1 spring retreat, and 5 Collegiate Challenge Spring Break trips to various locations across the country. For day trips, we serve in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia.  

New this year is our International build to Nicaragua, occurring in late May 2018!
