Building on Faith

Helping Hands

“…let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action.” 1 John 3:18

Building on Faith is a home building project that involves people of all faiths who want to make a difference in their communities by raising money, building homes, and offering a hand-up to local families needing safe, affordable housing. HFHWC values local faith communities as critical partners in the fight to end poverty housing in Whatcom County.

We ask our Building on Faith partners to give what their dreams, heart and wallet can agree on. These gifts support Habitat’s direct costs to complete a project or a home; and together our Building on Faith partners can sponsor an entire home annually and lift one more family our of poverty permanently. There are many opportunities to help, and we welcome your ideas. Every donation, and every helping hand makes a difference in our community!

If your Whatcom County church, synagogue, temple, or group is interested in getting involved in Habitat’s mission, please contact our office. While Habitat is an ecumenical Christian ministry, we welcome volunteers, donors, and partner families from all faiths. We look forward to meeting with members of your community to discuss how your community might help Habitat answer God’s call to minister to families in need of decent, affordable shelter.
