HOME BUILDERS BLITZ: October 12 - October 19, 2017

Home Builders Blitz engages professional home builders, subcontractors and suppliers in the home-building industry to build multiple houses simultaneously in one week. This annual house-building event increases Habitat Birmingham's house building capacity by continuing regular build schedules while professional home builders coordinate and execute the Blitz doing what they do best - organizing subs and suppliers to build houses. Planning has begun for our 2016 Home Builders Blitz. If you are a builder, subcontractor, or a company wanting to get involved, contact Habitat to find out how you can participate.

 

BUILDING ON FAITH: Advent Season 2017

Building On Faith is a house-building initiative designed to join together congregations of all faiths and membership sizes to build a house in partnership with families in need of quality, affordable housing. The concept is based on going out into the community to serve others, in the way Jesus’ apostles served. House construction takes place during Lent and Advent Seasons.
