  • Bump, Set and Build with HYP!

HYP is on a mission – to further the purpose of Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County. What's that purpose? To eliminate poverty housing and create a world where everyone has a decent, affordable place to live.

This is an audacious goal, but thanks to you – our volunteers, individual donors and corporate sponsors – we are closer every day.

So, what's next? We're taking it to the court—the volleyball court, that is! Partnering with SideOut Seattle Volleyball Association, we bring you Volleyball 4 Cause on August 24th at Mercer Island's Park on the Lid.

All proceeds go directly to the Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County's community revitalization project in the Federal Way Westway neighborhood. Many of you have volunteered there with HYP – thank you! - yet the project needs ongoing support. Like all of Habitat's endeavors, the aim here is to actively empower communities and provide safe, decent, affordable homes for local families.
