2021 Faith Build

Habitat for Humanity and Thrivent Faith Builds bring local churches together to raise roofs, walls, funds and prayers to build a home for a family in Sheridan.

Habitat for Humanity of the Eastern Bighorns and Thrivent have partnered together with local churches and Thrivent members in Sheridan to make a difference for a local family.  Habitat for Humanity of the Eastern Bighorns has been awarded an $85,000 matching challenge from Thrivent as part of the long-standing national partnership between Habitat and Thrivent, which helps families achieve strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable housing.  

Locally, Habitat and Thrivent will partner on the construction of a home at 1780 Willow Trail in the Poplar Grove subdivision, alongside multiple local churches in a Habitat and Thrivent Faith Builds. Over 80 of these home build projects will take place across the US.

“I am so grateful to have the opportunity to build another home in partnership with Thrivent and our local churches. I am confident that we will be able to successfully meet the generosity challenge match, as well as find ways to involve the community and volunteers throughout this year of building.”  

Habitat and Thrivent Faith Builds improve communities by helping Habitat build homes in partnership with Christian churches and families in need of decent, affordable housing in the US.

Thrivent has committed to partner with Habitat, future homeowner families, Christian churches, and volunteers across the US and around the world on different housing projects.
