Get To Know HYP!

Do you know about HYP? Habitat Young Professionals or HYP is a fresh approach to networking and community service - bringing next generation leaders together to build homes, communities, hope and a stronger Habitat Chesapeake. HYP members range in age from 18 - 35 and come from an array of professional backgrounds. They put their time and talents to use on behalf of Habitat Chesapeake, volunteering to build homes, raise funds and spread the word about our work.


Recently, the group hosted an HYP HabiTour, zigzagging through Baltimore City to see Habitat Chesapeake success stories like Waverly, where we built 70+ homes, alongside projects in-progress like Woodbourne-McCabe, where we are at work on 21 renovations. After a pic at each stop and a lucky run-in with several homebuyers working on their sweat equity hours, the HYP-ers headed to Nick’s Fish House to reflect on the day and have some fun! Next up, HYP will select officers to lead the coming year - coordinating quarterly build days, HabiHour fundraisers, advocacy campaigns and more.
