How the Faith Community Supports Our Work

Congregations and faith communities throughout our service area come together to combine their volunteer, fundraising, and prayer efforts to help realize our shared vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. 

Communities of faith are an important part of the success of Habitat Newburgh. Our very first house was a Unity House sponsored by the collective efforts of local faith communities. To date, Faith Build groups have sponsored 27 of the 80 homes that we have completed and 10 of the 30 A Brush with Kindness repair projects.

When Habitat Newburgh built its 22-home E. Parmenter Street Neighborhood Development, a flagship of our community-building work, one set of five connected houses was designated as the Faith Builds, with each home sponsored by a Faith Build partner.

Habitat homes are supported by countless prayers, volunteer hours, fundraising events, and donations big and small from communities of faith. Habitat homeowners live in decent and affordable homes, surrounded by walls built with great love.
