Faith Build

We are again partnering with the Manatee County Faith Community to build a new green home designated for a deserving family to purchase.

Over the years we’ve built homes with groups of Presbyterian, Lutheran and Methodist churches.  Most recently we brought together many denominations from Manatee County for our first Interfaith Build home which was purchased by Markisha Harris; single mom to three children. We believe this was a great way to showcase the role of our faith communities and we hope you will prayerfully consider joining us in this build in a way that is meaningful to your congregation.  Financial contributions will enable us to purchase the necessary materials and volunteer support of all kinds will help us complete the task of providing an opportunity for affordable home ownership.

Double your gift of $5 to $500 by visiting the Flanzer Philanthropic Foundation and choosing Manatee Habitat. The Foundation will match one gift per month.

We stopped in to chat with Rev. Dr. Bobbie Blackburn from Trinity Lutheran Church of Bradenton. Rev. Bobbie and Manatee Habitat have been partnering on faith builds for 25 years! That’s almost since Manatee Habitat was founded.
