Get Involved: Faith Build

Faith BuildHabitat for Humanity Manitoba (HFHM) invites people from all faiths to get involved and support our 'Faith Build'. With your help, Habitat will provide a much needed hand up to a low-income local family allowing them to purchase a new home through a no down payment, interest-free mortgage. In addition, like all Habitat families, these payments will be geared towards family income, not the value of the property. Each family must also contribute "sweat equity", working on their own home, other homes or in the ReStore.

The HFHM Faith Build goal is to give the gift of hope by fully funding and building a safe, decent, affordable home.


"Serving Christ by transforming lives and our community through Habitat is incredibly rewarding. We have contributed financial support and volunteers in the past and want to do what we can to help again this year. Partnering with Habitat allows us to carry out God's will in a very tangible and meaningful way. We encourage every Christian community and all Christians to join with us in building a home for Chei and Grace."
-John Ruban, Winnipeg Evangelical Free Church

    (call 1-800-667-5137 to purchase a copy). This publication outlines Habitat's biblical principles.
Join us in our Day of Prayer, observed each year on the third Sunday of September, when Habitat supporters around the world are urged to pray for those in need of safe, decent and affordable shelter and for those whom God is calling to respond.

Put your faith and love into action in a meaningful and powerful way. Each Habitat home that you help build, serves as a lasting reminder of God's grace. It is difficult to ignore such a tangible expression of love. The community notices when people work together as an instrument of God's love. Within and among congregations, people experience a strong sense of unity and purpose when together, they reach out to neighbours in need.
