Habitat for Humanity Manitoba, Brandon invites Christians to get involved and support our Faith Build. With your help, Habitat will provide a much needed hand up to a low-income local family, allowing them to purchase a new home through a no down payment, interest-free mortgage in addition, like all Habitat families, these payments will be geared toward family income, not the value of the property. Each family must also contribute “sweat equity”, working on their own home, other homes or int he ReStore.
The Habitat Faith Build goal is to give the gift of hope by fully funding and building a safe, decent, affordable home.
“Serving Christ by transforming lives and our community through Habitat is incredibly rewarding. We have contributed financial support and volunteers in the past and we want to do what we can to help again this year. Partnering with Habitat allows us to carry out God’s will in a very tangible and meaningful way. We encourage every Christian community and all Christians to join with us in building a home.”~ John Ruban, Winnipeg Evangelical Free Church
