We have collaborated with partners such as Habitat for Humanity, Rise Against Hunger, and Junior Achievement for many years to expand affordable housing and mentor children to pursue successful careers.

Habitat for Humanity

MetLife Foundation partners with Habitat for Humanity to build strength, stability, and self-reliance for families in need of decent and affordable housing. A house is most families’ greatest financial asset. With MetLife Foundation’s support and MetLife volunteer efforts, Habitat for Humanity increases affordable housing and homeownership. Its proven program includes construction of new housing, improvement of existing homes in disrepair, and revitalization of community facilities and open space. Habitat maintains housing affordability through efficient building methods, modest house sizes, no-profit loans, and volunteer labor including partner families.

MetLife volunteers work side-by-side with future Habitat homeowners and community members on ground-up home building projects, home repairs, and community improvements. Homeownership — the cornerstone of Habitat’s work — fosters stability and revitalization in low-income areas. By obtaining a home, stabilizing living expenses, and managing cash flows necessary to maintain a home, families can improve their financial well-being, as well as their physical well-being and educational opportunities. Almost 1,400 MetLife volunteers contributed over 12,000 hours in 17 countries to Habitat new construction, home repair, and neighborhood revitalization projects in 2019.

Rise Against Hunger

Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief organization that distributes food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable people. In partnership with Rise Against Hunger, more than 2,000 MetLife employees at 11 U.S. and two India sites spent more than 10,000 hours packaging nutrient-rich meals for people at risk of food insecurity and increasing their awareness of the issue. The annual event is an initiative of Rising Professionals at MetLife (iRise).

Junior Achievement

For the fourth consecutive year, Junior Achievement (JA) USA has given MetLife a Gold US President’s Volunteer Service Award for providing more than 15,000 hours to JA around the world during the last program year (2018-19). The Gold Award is the highest level of recognition and is a U.S. presidential recognition program created by the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation for individuals and organizations who contribute a significant amount of time to volunteer service. JA USA, as an official certifying organization of the award, bestows the honor on organizations with a U.S. presence that provide volunteers to teach JA programs anywhere in the world. Employees in 25 countries volunteered more than 13,100 hours for local JA programs and at regional entrepreneurship competitions in Europe and the Middle East North Africa.
