heridan is again helping with the construction of Lincoln’s 17th Thrivent Builds – Habitat for Humanity House. The house is located at 1101 Garber St. on the edge of the Belmont Shopping Center, close to Barnabas Community.
Habitat and Thivent Financial Partnership
Thrivent Builds is an effort to dramatically increase the number of homes Habitat builds in a year—beyond the homes Habitat already builds. The goal is to build hundreds of homes per year with Habitat, from the inner cities of America to neighborhoods around the world.
Through volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations of money, land, and materials Lincoln/Lancaster County Habitat for Humanity builds or rehabilitates simple, decent and affordable houses. Families are selected based on their level of need, willingness to partner with us, acceptance of responsibilities and ability to repay the mortgage. Families must complete at least 300-400 hours of sweat equity. Qualified families purchase Habitat homes with zero-interest mortgages. Habitat homeowners take pride in owning their home, which in turn has proven to increase their children’s educational success.
Like to volunteer?
Thrivent requires 75% of the volunteer hours be provided by Lutherans. City codes require persons at least 16 years of age but under the age of 18, to have a parent signature to participate in building activities, with the exception of interior painting. Your prayers and your donations of cash, labor or materials in support of this project are gratefully accepted. Monetary donations can be made through Sheridan Lutheran Church by designating the Thrivent Builds project.
