Join the team building a faithful response to King County’s housing crisis. Bring a group to build on site, or have a member of our team join you to preach or share at coffee hour.
Members of all faiths are welcome; we strive to be an example of what we can build when we work together!
Stay plugged in and email us on when our faith meetings begin! Together we plan our annual Interfaith Build, learn from each other, take part in touring homeless encampments and other activities, and build relationship.
We hope you can join us!
If you or your faith community would like to get involved with Habitat on an ongoing basis, we ask that you send a representative to our monthly Faith Committee gatherings.
As your community’s representative, you will get the latest news and project updates from Habitat, hear different ways to get your faith community involved, learn, explore, brainstorm, and collaborate on exciting community events, such as our annual Interfaith Build in the fall.
Please email for more information or to let us know you’d like to get involved.
Habitat’s Interfaith Build has been taking place in King County for over 15 years. Started as a grassroots effort under the name “Together We Build,” in response to 9/11, our ongoing local Interfaith Build demonstrates the power of working together across cultural divisions in a spirit of Love to build a better world.
Join our diverse group of faith partners in September/October each year for Interfaith Build, or join our mailing list to find out about other Interfaith activities throughout the year. Learn more>>
Please email for more information on Habitat’s Interfaith activities.
From our inception, Habitat’s work has been driven by faith volunteers.
Beyond construction opportunities, faith communities can volunteer at our stores, do outreach and door knocking, show up for advocacy, gather for social time to learn from each other, organize and travel to global village trips or nationwide Habitat builds.
If you have construction skills — all the better!
- Volunteer groups: Organize time for a group from your community to build on site with us
- Individual volunteers: Consider joining us in our office, on a committee, in our stores, or on a special project
- Retirees: People with consistent free time may sometimes join our crew of “Regulars” on construction sites or in our stores. It’s a great way to build community and stay active. Contact us to find the right fit for you
- Youth groups: Before children can safely enter our construction sites at age 16, they can host bake sales, write notes of encouragement for our incoming families, and more
- Meal support: Faith volunteers can help coordinate and deliver meals to support our construction site volunteers
- Facilities support: If your facility is located near a Habitat project or in a central location, consider offering space for parking or our special events.
Please contact us to get involved or propose your own idea.
Do you know a family in need of housing? Join our mailing list to hear and share about upcoming Family Information Sessions, where prospective families can learn about partnering with Habitat and start the process.
Faith volunteers often make great Family Support Partners, who tutor, mentor, and work alongside families as they build and learn about becoming a homeowner.
Please contact us to learn how you can get involved supporting Habitat Families.
Faith communities who believe in stable housing for low-income families have supported Habitat in many ways, from faithful monthly donations to financially supporting entire homes.
Consider these ways faith groups have supported Habitat:
- Special offerings: Support Habitat with a one-time collection from your community
- Missional giving: Include Habitat in the missions that your community plans to support on a monthly or quarterly basis
- Holiday giving: Invite or support us through your Alternative Gift Fair, share the proceeds from Poinsettia sales, or make an end-of-year gift to Habitat
- Benefit events: King County faith partners have created unique events in their communities to raise significant support for low-income homeownership, from Rummage Sales to Fundraising Breakfast events
- Land & distributions: If you have property that is no longer serving your mission, Habitat can ensure land and facilities serve the needs of our most needy for generations to come. We have also helped churches at the end of their life cycle create a lasting legacy.
To discuss an offering to Habitat, please email us or call 206-866-7599.
Please note, Habitat for Humanity Seattle – King County is the only Habitat that builds homes locally in King County. We also tithe 10% of our unrestricted income to build homes overseas.
Pray continually for the work of Habitat: for volunteers’ safety on the jobsite, for Habitat families through their transition to stable lives, and for the steadfastness of our staff and donors.
