Interested in getting your company involved hands-on in a Habitat for Humanity project? Build days are great for teambuilding and show that your company cares about the community and helping low-income families that could benefit from the hand up of homeownership.

Habitat for Humanity is a non-denominational housing organization that was founded in the United States in 1976 based on Christian principles and the idea of partnership housing.

Everyone can use the hammer as an instrument to manifest their faith. Habitat founder, Millard Fuller, calls this concept "the theology of the hammer," explaining, "we may disagree on all sorts of other things... but we can agree on the idea of building homes with God's people in need, and… doing so… [at] no profit and no interest."

Engaging your faith group on a Habitat build provides the opportunity for you to live out your faith. We have a variety of meaningful ways your faith group can get involved, and together, we can make affordable homeownership a reality for families living in need.

To involve your faith group, contact your local affiliate.
