WANT TO PARTICIPATE?
PRAY - First and foremost, we ask that you keep the ministry of Habitat for Humanity in your prayers.
VOLUNTEER – If you, your church or business or other civic group would like to volunteer, we would love to have you! Once construction begins, all volunteer opportunities will be posted at our Volunteer Hub. You can read more about the process here, but you will be able to sign up yourself and even whole groups with one registration!
We are planning a Framing Blitz, where the entire house gets framed in one day! Construction for this home started in October 2017!
Check the Hub often or sign up for Volunteer Alerts, so you are notified when dates are added to the site. If you have any questions, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Mimi Mitchell using firstname.lastname@example.org or 757-913-5652. We look forward to seeing you on the site!
DONATE – We received a generous grant of $55,000 from Thrivent Financial for this home, which we have to match dollar for dollar. We have received some funding from many area congregations, but have not yet reached our goal. If you'd like to contribute to this build, you can do so on the right.
You can also mail a check to Habitat for Humanity / 11011 Warwick Blvd / Newport News, VA 23601. Please include "faith build" or "Thrivent" in the memo line.
Churches can also prepare and serve meals for construction workers and volunteers. You can also provide in-kind goods and services (for example, a plumber from your church might volunteer to do the plumbing work on a Habitat house).
Sell SHARES in the Thrivent Builds home! One square foot of a Habitat home is $62.50 and we sell 1200 shares for each Habitat home. Share certificates make great gifts for birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and other special occasions! You can also purchase a share personally in this home!
