At Habitat, we build for a world where everyone has a decent place to live; for diverse communities full of neighbors from all backgrounds - no matter their income; and for the families seeking affordable housing so they may find the stability, security, and self-reliance they need to thrive.
We believe that everyone can make a difference. As a community of different beliefs, backgrounds, and religious and non-religious worldviews, Habitat brings people together to celebrate our diversity and honor our shared commitment to the common good.
Contact Karen Hernandez, Faith Partnerships Manager, to see how your faith community can get involved.
Turn values into vision and mission! When generosity and service go hand in hand, you make a tangible difference you will see and an impact your community will feel.
Whether you sponsor a build day, host a family-friendly playhouse build, plan a fundraiser, or make monthly financial commitment, you’re making a commitment toward a positive impact and unity in your community.
Together, volunteers from all faiths and non-religious worldviews are uniting to support a shared goal of raising $75,000 to dedicate a home within a Habitat development as the Unity House.
The Unity House sponsorship shows the power of togetherness and is an example of how when we open our hearts, we can find common ground in our deeper purpose to do good for our neighbors and build faith in each other.
Contact Karen Hernandez, Faith Partnerships Manager, to connect with local partners and become a part of the Unity House.
As part of Habitat’s Unity House sponsorship, faith communities make a tangible difference building homes both big and small. This past summer, the following communities came together for our first Unity Playhouse Build:
South Bay Islamic Association Los Altos United Methodist Church,
Campbell Church of Christ
ECHO Bangladeshi Community of Fremont
Congregation Kol Emeth
Congregation Beth Am
Muslim Community of the East Bay
Together, these communities built seven playhouses that were then donated to the Family Violence Center/YWCA of Silicon Valley, Family Supportive Housing, and to families of first responders in the Bay Area.
“It’s very deeply rooted in Jewish tradition to give back to the community, and I know it’s so central to Islam and Christianity as well. Participating in the Unity Playhouse Build was a great way for our synagogue to support the Jewish value of tikkun olam, repairing the world, while bonding with neighbors from other faith traditions.”
