Habitat for Humanity

Join us as we build our 4th house!

 

About Habitat for Humanity

Lack of affordable housing is one of the biggest challenges facing our homeless neighbors in Charlotte.  Habitat Charlotte transforms lives by partnering with families and our communities to create and preserve affordable home ownership solutions, including construction of new homes for qualified families.  Homeowners contribute 300 hours of sweat-equity to Habitat.  Learn more here.

Over 30 years, St. Gabriel Church has built 4 homes and assisted with construction of more than 100 homes.  We support Habitat's commitment to build "strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter". 


Opportunities to Serve:  We're building our 4th Habitat home! 

 

Saturdays from late October 2018 - January 2019,  St. Gabriel Church will provide volunteers for the build team and support crew (lunch and check-in) volunteers.  See volunteer opportunities below.

House location:  4944 Victoria Street, Charlotte, NC
