Join us in Lake City and Renton this year for fellowship and the hands-on work of Habitat for Humanity! Get together with members of many faiths to respond to our regional housing crisis. Members of all faiths are welcome! We strive to be an example of what we can accomplish when we work together.
Get Involved with the Build
Sign up for one or more of our September 2020 Interfaith Build Dates (Seattle Interfaith is happening on Sept 9th, 11th, and 12th and our Renton build is happening on the 16th and 19th)
If you would like to organize a group, sign up as an individual, or have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 206-866-6783. Space is limited – act now!
Be a Speaker
We are looking for volunteer speakers or clergy to share their faith’s connection to housing and speak at our build events. We are especially looking for speakers and clergy for our 9/11 virtual event. Please contact Joel Feldman if you or someone from your congregation or the community would like to participate.
Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County takes safety and the health of volunteers very seriously. During Interfaith and anytime volunteers are on-site, we will take proper precautions and follow the Governor’s and Master Builder Association guidelines.
Interfaith Build Background
Over 50 faith communities have participated in Interfaith Builds with Habitat SKC since 2001. Every September/October, members of diverse faith communities gather on Habitat sites to practice building a better world together.
Initiated in response to 9/11 under the name “Together We Build,” dozens of Muslim, Jewish, Christian, and other faith groups have been coming together each year, overcoming the cultural divisions that rise in the wake of violence and hatred.
Interfaith builds on Habitat’s roots in a missional, racially integrated community in the deep South. From the beginning, Habitat has built together for a better world.
Thank you so much to everyone who came out and made Interfaith Build 2019 such an amazing success! We got a ton of critical work done at our Lake City Way and Pacific, WA locations and we are so grateful for all of your help!
Joining us was St. Joseph Parish, Seattle, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Habitat Young Professionals of Seattle-King County, Seattle Preparatory School, Saint Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral, Bothell United Methodist Church and many amazing volunteers! Thanks for coming and we will see you all at the next one in 2020!
