Dorchester Habitat for Humanity Hosting Faith Build
Dorchester Habitat for Humanity is hosting a Faith Build construction project that began in September 2014 and will continue through December 2014. The Faith Build is located on donated land at 111 Weber Drive in Summerville.
The Wall Raising Ceremony took place on September 18th. Regular build work days will generally be on Thursdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m.
A Faith Build is a home sponsored and built in conjunction with a gathering of local faith-based groups and organizations. “This partnership will allow Summerville area churches and faith-based groups to fully fund and build a safe, decent, and affordable home with a family in need; build relationships with members of other congregations; and build a greater witness of God’s love at work in our community,” said Monica Nagy, former Development Manager.
Each faith partner group will share the responsibilities of sponsoring the home financially and building during each stage of construction. The total cost to build the home is $72,000. Financial contributions from churches and faith based organizations can come from special offerings, fundraisers, or special emphasis during the holidays and can include in-kind donations of materials and services.
Approximately 15 volunteers are needed each Saturday of building. Volunteers can participate in construction activities, provide lunches for construction volunteers, or offer devotions at the beginning of the work day.
