Build for Unity - Interfaith Build

Thank you for joining us for Build for Unity 2023!

Habitat for Humanity believes there is more that unites us than divides us.  During World Interfaith Harmony Week, Habitat will bring together over 250 volunteers from all faiths, beliefs and backgrounds to help build homes, community and hope. Funds raised through Build for Unity support Habitat’s mission to build and preserve affordable housing for low-income families, seniors and Veterans in our region.  #BuildforUnity

We’d like to say a special thank you to our volunteers and members of the interfaith community that participated this year. Build for Unity brings communities together to build strength, hope, and homes.

The History of Build for Unity

From January 2016- June 2017 in Sacramento, various Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Jewish, Sikh, and other interfaith communities came together to fund and build Habitat homes as a permanent representation of unity within our community.  These homes were made possible through the generosity of 180 different faith communities and individuals who raised the needed resources for the seed funding for the homes and worked side by side to build the homes as a symbol of unity.

Since the pilot Sacramento Build for Unity Project, over 30 cities across the US have started their own Build for Unity projects in their own communities.
