“Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders toil in vain on it…”
Habitat for Humanity Interfaith Build Project began in 2016 with a goal of bringing the interfaith community together to build 10 affordable homes for deserving low-income families. This project reflects the highest level of religious collaboration as it brings Godliness, dignity and joy to families in need of a home. In all of Calgary’s faith traditions, there is a recognition that the foundation of moral and spiritual living lies within the home.
Individual and congregational support has been instrumental in raising over $800,000 toward our $1million goal. Our success thus far is based upon the Biblical verse, “Each shall bring his own gift, appropriate to the blessing which the Lord your God has given you.” We gratefully acknowledge that the generosity of large donors combined with the power of many smaller yet significant gifts has helped bring joy and hope to deserving families in need of affordable housing.
We now ask you to join us in the final phase of our campaign. The attached newsletter will update you on several important aspects of our effort and hopefully inspire you to volunteer and donate so that we can achieve our worthy goal.
We are always available to answer any questions you have about the Interfaith Build Project as well as offer guidance and ideas about how to encourage your participation.
