Learning Opportunities

Habitat for Humanity Texas provides learning opportunities through training and technical assistance to affiliates around the state. In addition to regular webinars, we offer custom training at the local level for boards of directors and staff. We can even help with community-wide planning.

The highlights of our learning are our annual conference, the Lone Star Summit, held each August and the Leader Retreat for executive directors and board chairs in the winter.
