How it works

A Habitat home costs $125,000 and takes about 3-4 months to build. Each church partner is asked to:

  • sponsor a portion of the cost of the home, which is $10,000
  • identify a church member to recruit volunteers and update congregants on the build 
  • enlist 15 volunteers to help during the course of the build. Volunteers register online and Habitat takes it from there! 
  • offer opportunities to pray for the future homeowner
