Faith Partnership Program

From Habitat for Humanity’s earliest roots, churches have always played an important role in building a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Habitat was created out of a Koinonia farm, a small, interracial, Christian community outside of Americus, Georgia. Locally, we have likely worked with someone from every congregation throughout Steele and Waseca counties since our founding in 1993. You and your peers have provided inspiration, energy, and support to our organization—financial, volunteer, and prayer support. Without your support, 24 homeowners throughout our community might not have a decent place to live. ​

​We invite you to become a Faith Partner with Habitat for Humanity of Steele-Waseca Area. As a Faith Partner church, we ask you to engage directly with Habitat in the kind of hands-on work that we are best known for. We would like your church to make a financial contribution, provide hands-on volunteer support on a home build, and engage in an educational or reflective activity to connect service with your congregation’s faith values. We would also like you to identify a church contact to coordinate these activities and serve as a voice for your congregation.

Youth Partnership Program

Our Youth Partnership Program will engage youth of all ages in activities related to Habitat for Humanity. Our goal is to start teaching the idea of volunteering, learning that everyone deserves a decent place to live, and an introduction to trades skills such as carpentry and plumbing, which are in high demand. Our Youth Partnership Program is a four step program that will take participants through learning, acting, reflecting, and sharing on their experience with Habitat for Humanity.
