- What We Build
Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley is an inclusive, faith-based housing organization that was founded with the belief that everyone should have a safe and decent place to call home. Currently, more than 100 faith communities across Contra Costa, Alameda, and Santa Clara Counties come together each year to raise funds, build homes, and change lives.
We as Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs, Atheists, Humanists, Jains, Baha’i and all faiths and backgrounds can build homes. Together, we can build hope.
Thank you to the more than 250 volunteers representing more than three dozen faith communities who joined us at the Building on Faith Framing Blitz, June 6-8, 2015. Now, see the impact you made this past summer for families in Martinez.
Build a home, lead on a committee, or work behind the scenes at the ReStores or offices. As volunteers, you and your community put faith into action in service to your neighbors. Faith groups volunteer with us across the three counties we serve. At interfaith and group build days, volunteers express their personal faith through service while building relationships with those of all faiths and backgrounds.
Be an advocate by speaking publicly, sharing one-on-one, or writing letters in support of affordable housing. Share the mission of Habitat for Humanity with your church, mosque, temple or synagogue. Share the need for affordable housing with your city, county, and state leaders, or with neighbors who can come alongside you to create more affordable homes in your area.
All Faiths Builds- Support from people of all faiths creates homes, community, and hope. Sponsoring congregations and interfaith groups work together to advocate, raise funds, and build a home as part of the All Faiths Build effort in each of our three counties.
For more about giving financially with your faith community, see Faith Partnerships.
Thrivent Builds- Through the Thrivent Builds program, Thrivent Financial has donated over $2 million to Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley to fund, build and repair homes for homeowners with limited incomes. As a Thrivent Member or member of a partnering church, your engagement as a volunteer helps raise funds and build homes. Contact us to join current efforts by the Thrivent community in Contra Costa County, Alameda County, or Silicon Valley.
