A home for
a family

We have been blessed with an $85,000 match from Thrivent to build a home for the Morales family. 

 

Meet the Morales Family

 

Edwin and Yenifer Morales are first-generation immigrants with 4 incredibly active children.

Currently, the family is packed into a 2-bedroom, second-floor apartment in a house divided into 4 units. Helping two small children and a newborn navigate the narrow stairs and small rooms is a significant safety concern.

The Morales family is looking forward to finally having a stable home that fits their family. “Getting a Habitat home will help us eliminate frequent moves and starting over socially and academically, like our children have had to do 3 times in the last 5 years.”

Moving into a neighborhood with young families is exciting for Edwin and Yenifer, as it will help their family create deeper roots in the Holland community. A Habitat home will be a life-changing experience that will bless their family for generations to come!

 

Thank you to the 16 local churches who have joined the Faith Builds Generosity Challenge! Members of these churches are providing volunteer support, donating to help us meet the Thrivent match, or both.

How To Get Involved

There are many ways for church members to get involved in a Faith Build on and off the construction site:

  • Make a financial contribution.

  • Organize on-site volunteer days for your church members.

  • Organize a fundraising activity.

  • Provide lunch for on-site workers.

  • Create a welcome basket or other special items for the family.

  • Participate at groundbreaking and dedication events.

  • Form a prayer group.

Why To Get Involved

A Faith Build gives your church members a concrete way to put their faith into action and see tangible results. But that’s just the beginning. It also:

  • Builds community within your church.

  • Empowers church members to serve in the community.

  • Gives people of faith an opportunity to engage in construction and non-construction activities and be the body of Christ in the world.

  • Helps build community among Christian churches. 

Let’s Do This!

Together, we can help a family begin a journey to strength, stability, and independence through affordable homeownership.
