Interfaith Build

When building community, sector and societal impact, Habitat for Humanity desires to put God’s love into action by building with a community, not merely for it. We are and will remain a Christian ministry, but as North America becomes more diverse, building with a community means involving the religions represented there. It means engaging with the communities we serve, in all their diversity. Habitat’s work should reflect the diversity of those communities, or it will be increasingly difficult to claim that we include all people in building homes, communautés et de l'espoir.

As a reflection of this, Beaches Habitat for Humanity selects one build per year for our Interfaith Build. We hope to continue to partner with the faith communities that have been such an integral part of our organization, while also encouraging new partnerships with all faiths in our community.

Comment ça marche

Faith communities determine the scope of their partnership. In recognition of your commitment, Beaches Habitat will provide resources and guidance, on-site signage, and an invitation to attend and participate in the wall-raising ceremony, to kick off the build, and home dedication, to mark its completion.

Faith communities wishing to partner with Beaches Habitat for Interfaith Build can do so through any or all of the following ways:

  • Engage Volunteers: Participate in at least two volunteer build days with five to ten volunteers from your faith community
  • In-Kind Donations: Provide lunch for about 30 volunteers following build activities on at least two occasions
  • Financial Contributions: Make a donation or host a fundraiser to benefit Beaches Habitat

Our next Interfaith Build will be kicking off in February 2019!
