Adopting a Habitat for Humanity home is a great way for your church or business to join together to help a family in need. Groups who adopt a home contribute all or part of the house sponsorship cost as well as contributing volunteer labor on some or all workdays for the home. Currently it costs $80,000 to adopt a home, which covers the costs of building materials and some subcontractor labor.
The benefits of Adopting a Home are many, including:
- Increasing camaraderie and team spirit
- A sense of accomplishment and empowerment
- Raising the profile of your group in the community
- Promoting a spirit of compassion while working with our neighbors in need
Is Adopting a Home right for my group?
If your group is considering Adopting a Home, you may want to take a look at the Introductory Kit or the full Adopt a Home Manual for more information. Habitat will work with you to coordinate most aspects of the build.
