Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles supporters within the Roman Catholic tradition began discussing ways in which they could unite the broader Catholic community to address the housing needs faced by our city’s low income families. This self-titled “Catholic Build” has taken the initiative to raise the funds and provide the volunteer labor to build a home in the city of Lynwood! Comprised of parishes from across Greater Los Angeles Roman Catholic Archdiocese, the coalition continues to engage new churches. The coalition has set a goal to fund a full-house sponsorship of $150,000 and Habitat LA is grateful and excited for such opportunity and will be working in close partnership, providing staff support and guidance in construction and collaboration. We are overjoyed that Archbishop Gomez is in support of the project and will be joining us upon the completion to lead a house blessing!
Consider joining the Habitat LA Catholic Build! Help us reach our goal of $150,000 to build a home in the city of Lynwood for a hard-working, low income family. If you’d like to learn more and hear how your parish can get involved, please contact Chris Untiet, Faith Relations Manager, at 424-246-3622 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please help us reach our goal by sharing our campaign with your friends and colleagues!
