Build in Honor of Pope Francis


Pope FrancisCharleston Habitat for Humanity is building a home in honor of Pope Francis! This home is partially sponsored by an anonymous  donor who has been inspired by Pope Francis’s dedication to social justice, equality and peace. Charleston Habitat and the donor  hope to inspire others by inviting volunteers from local churches and schools to participate in the construction of this home, as well  as to make a donation to this build.

 The purpose of the Pope Francis Build is:

 1. To honor Pope Francis for his commitment to social justice and reinvigorating the Catholic Church;

2. To provide a unifying, celebratory opportunity for both Catholic and non-Catholic volunteers to work towards a common goal      (as Pope Francis says, “Work confers dignity”);

3. To further Habitat’s mission of building, and preserving homes.

Our goal is to raise the remaining funds from churches, individuals and businesses in our community. By helping us achieve this  goal, you are making it possible for a family to purchase an affordable home through Charleston Habitat for Humanity and further assisting with our efforts to  break the cycle of poverty for Charleston families.

Interested in volunteering? We have just the job for you! Be sure to check out our volunteer calendar frequently to see how you can get involved. You  may also follow the progress of the #PopeFrancisHouse on our social media pages!
