Faith communities play an integral role in our mission. The United Methodist and Presbyterian churches have sponsored Habitat houses for 25 years! Episcopal churches have also been loyal partners, building a house every other year, and many diverse faith groups unite to build the annual Interfaith house. Faith partners have supported Building on the Dream houses, and currently the Catholic churches are taking a leadership role in The Pope Francis House, a home built in honor of the beloved leader.
Thrivent Builds is a long-term funding and volunteer partnership between Thrivent Financial and Habitat for Humanity International which has built, renovated or repaired more than 4,800 homes across the country since 2005, including eight houses here in Asheville. It is due in part to the unwavering support from faith communities that we are able to make a difference to so many families in Buncombe county.
