University of Houston Coog Playhouse

The University of Houston Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapter has built a special Coog Playhouse!

This playhouse can be yours!

The proceeds of the Coog Playhouse auction will go toward the eventual construction of the Coog House that has been designed by the University of Houston students of the Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture. This house will be an affordable, beautiful home of a future Houston Habitat for Humanity homeowner.

The Coogs’ House Project will not only provide a family with a home, but it will also give students, faculty, and supporters a chance to participate and contribute to this project.

The students designed the Coogs’ House with the idea that “an affordable home does not have to sacrifice aesthetics.” Thoughtful design can result in an affordable, enjoyable, and sustainable house. The students received real-life experience as they worked with Houston Habitat as their clients throughout the whole process. As the project continues to develop, more and more students will be involved.

Bid on the Coog Playhouse!

Any University of Houston Cougar family would love to see their kids playing in this UH-themed playhouse.

A playhouse gives children a place to foster their creativity and leadership through pretend play. And a playhouse is a child’s first experience in owning their own home.

Support the future Coog House

Your support will allow UH students to participate in the design and construction of a Houston Habitat home while also providing a decent, affordable place for a Houston family to call home.

Bid on the Playhouse now!

Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapters

A campus chapter is a group of students who are passionate about helping people build better lives for themselves and are ready to take the next step to lead the charge at their school to help fulfill Habitat’s mission. Each campus chapter is a student-led, student-initiated organization on a high school or college campus that partners with the local Habitat for Humanity to fulfill the four functions of a campus chapter.

Campus chapters are guided by four functions:

  • Direct service
    Campus chapters partner with their local Habitat volunteering on new home construction, rehabilitation, rehab, neighborhood revitalization, Habitat ReStore and office tasks.
  • Fundraising
    Campus chapters raise funds to support the work of their local Habitat for Humanity and Habitat for Humanity International. Chapters may contribute through various fundraisers in partnership with their local Habitat or toward the tithe program.
  • Advocating
    Campus chapter leaders and members must advocate for affordable housing because building is only one critical piece to answering the need for affordable housing. Being a Habitat advocate means raising your voice to shape policies to serve people in need of decent housing.
  • Educating
    Campus chapters educate others on their campus and in their local community about the importance and need for strong, stable housing and what Habitat does to increase access to housing solutions.
