Manatee County Habitat for Humanity is partnering with the local Faith Community to build a new green home. Yvette and her son Jose, will be purchasing this home with a 0% interest loan after completing the Home Buyer Program. This home will be extra special to them both as it will have adaptations which will enable Jose to live more independently.

Over the years we’ve built homes with local Lutheran, Methodist and Presbyterian churches.  Most recently we brought together many denominations from Manatee County for our first Interfaith Build. That home was purchased with a 0% interest loan, by Markisha, a single mom to three children.

We believe this was a great way to showcase the role of our faith communities. We hope you will prayerfully consider joining us in this build in any 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.

Everyone can be a philanthropist!

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 from individual and church donations.

Below are our amazing faith partners for this Interfaith build. If you don’t see your families church, temple, synagogue or mosque listed, you are still more than welcome to join all of us in building this amazing family a forever home! We welcome everyone and there are many, many ways to participate!
