What is Build for Unity?
Drawing from the Habitat mission, the national Build for Unity initiative brings people together of diverse faiths and backgrounds to build homes, a strong community, and hope for a better world that celebrates all people.
In Raleigh, the interfaith community works together each year to fund and build a Habitat Wake home with a family in need of affordable housing. What began in 2011 as the “Abraham Build” has grown each year to include a broader and more diverse group of faith communities.
How can I help Build for Unity?
Here are some ways you can support #BUILDforUnity:
