Faith Sponsorship

Habitat for Humanity is an ecumenical Christian housing ministry.  The work of Habitat for Humanity is driven by the desire to give tangible expression to God's love through the work of eliminating poverty housing.  Habitat for Humanity partners with individuals of all faiths, or no faith.  Our ministry provides an opportunity for people to put their faith and love into action and to bring diverse groups of people together to build homes and community.

Habitat is a partnership founded on common ground – bridging theological differences by putting love into action. Everyone can use a hammer as an instrument to manifest God's love. While we may disagree on many issues, we can agree on the idea of building homes with God's people in need. As we focus on working together to build a house, we realize that our similarities become more important than our differences.

If you would like more information about building on faith with Habitat Capital Region, please email Caroline Beachy Jacobs, Faith Relations Coordinator, or call (517) 374-1313 x 13.
