About The Team

Highlands County, Florida, saw great devastation after Hurricane Irma ripped through the county on September 9, 2017.  Huge trees were uprooted, roofs were ripped off, and homes were completely destroyed.  The county’s damage assessment immediately following the storm reported over 13,000 damaged homes, 144 being completely uninhabitable, and total damages estimated to cost over $360 million.

Highlands County Habitat for Humanity has a goal of building 40 new homes in the Mason’s Ridge subdivision over the next four years for families displaced by Hurricane Irma.  The homes vary from 2-4 bedrooms in size and are designed and built to meet Florida Green Build requirements for energy efficient affordable housing.  Two homes are now complete, and we anticipate plenty of opportunities our team to be involved in various aspects of new construction while interacting with Habitat families and construction staff.  No special skills are required!  Habitat does a great job of training volunteers and demonstrating how to complete the tasks scheduled for each day!

We appreciate your donations and prayers for our team!

Thrivent and Habitat:

No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve to have a decent life. We deserve to feel strength and stability day after day. At Habitat for Humanity, this is what unites us. Through shelter, we empower. Building with Habitat for Humanity International is a profound experience for all involved. It’s not just sticks and blocks. It is tears and smiles, borne of hard work and faith.That’s why Thrivent Financial works with Habitat and it’s why we want to do more. Much more. Thrivent Builds with Habitat for Humanity engages congregations, Thrivent members, Habitat affiliates, and individuals from across the United States and around the world to build hundreds of housing solutions per year for Habitat homeowners, directly reducing poverty housing around the world.Thrivent Financial’s mission as a membership organization of Christians is to guide people to be wise with money and live generously. Leading or participating in a Thrivent Builds Worldwide trip with Habitat is a prime way to put that mission in action.
