Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity of Wake County develops partnerships to build healthy, affordable homes with and for God's people in need, promotes self-reliance through homeownership, affirms the dignity of the family, and creates sustainable communities.
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian organization dedicated to eliminating substandard housing and homelessness worldwide and to making adequate, affordable shelter a matter of conscience and action.
St. Andrew's is one of seven Catholic parishes participating each year in the Habitat Catholic Coalition Build. This build provides a new home for a qualifying family in the Raleigh area. All St. Andrew's parishioners are invited to donate time working on the house or providing lunches for the Catholic Coalition volunteers.
STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFORMATION ON HOW YOU CAN HELP THIS MISSION! During this Year of Mercy please consider participating in this wonderful Corporal Work of Mercy, to shelter the homeless!
Open to all who wish to volunteer. No experience is necessary. Families, parish groups, high-schoolers (age 16 and older) are all welcome. We also need help providing lunches for the volunteers. Anyone interested in helping build an affordable home for a family is welcome to help.
