Habitat For Humanity Menominee River
|Building communities where everyone has a decent place to live|
"A home is where families grow, memories are made and possibilities arise"
Thrivent Builds Homes is one of three Thrivent Builds programs which partners the financial, volunteer and advocacy resources of Thrivent Financial together with the affordable housing construction leadership of Habitat for Humanity. Thrivent Builds Homes focuses on building new homes alongside Habitat partner families who pay a no-profit mortgage for their home as well as contribute hundreds of sweat equity hours in the construction process. Thrivent Builds Repairs is a program that focuses on helping complete external repairs on existing homes and Thrivent Builds Worldwide sends teams of volunteers across the country or across the globe to build homes with recipient families.
Thrivent Builds with Habitat for Humanity is an ongoing partnership between Thrivent Financial and Habitat for Humanity International. From the national partnership’s inception in 2005, Thrivent Financial and its members have now committed more than $226 million and more than 4.7 million volunteer hours. This has resulted in thousands of families and individuals living in safe, decent, and affordable housing as well as hundreds of communities banding together to make a positive impact on local residents.
Thrivent Builds with Habitat for Humanity is a multi-year, multi-million dollar mission partnership between Thrivent Financial and Habitat for Humanity International. Thrivent Builds is designed to involve Thrivent members and Christians in helping provide a “hand up” to people in need of affordable housing, offering them a path to greater economic independence. Excluding government funding, Thrivent Builds with Habitat for Humanity is Habitat's largest single source of funding, constructing and repairing more than 4,800 homes in the U.S. and around the world since 2005.
Locally, eight Habitat new house constructions have been sponsored by Thrivent Financial. Thrivent Financial also branched into supporting owner-occupied home repair projects several years ago. In 2015, Habitat for Humanity Menominee River completed 14 Thrivent Build Repairs projects. Thrivent support to the affiliate for these 14 projects totals $35,000.
