Pikes Peak Habitat's Interfaith Programs

Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity is a proudly Christian organization that works with people of all faiths and no faith. We are garnering national recognition for our interfaith initiatives, which bring together people of diverse faith traditions to build homes, form relationships, and engage in constructive dialogue about affordable homeownership.

Interfaith Build for Unity

Interfaith Build for Unity Logo

In 2021, Pikes Peak Habitat started bringing together congregations, groups, and communities from a variety of faith traditions, spiritual practices, and beliefs who worked side by side to build affordable homes for families in El Paso County.

IBU volunteer days are times of celebrating tolerance, cooperation, and love for our neighbor as volunteers come together to help make homeownership possible for a local family.

U.N. World Interfaith Harmony Week

In 2010, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed the first week in February annually as World Interfaith Harmony Week, with the goals of showcasing the importance of interfaith dialogue among people of diverse faith backgrounds, belief systems, and spiritual practices, and of spreading the message of goodwill and respect for others.

Pikes Peak Habitat's Interfaith Build for Unity subcommittee -- a group of individuals from diverse backgrounds and faiths who unite to build affordable homes in partnership with El Paso County workforce families -- invite you to join us in celebrating this initiative each year.

In 2024, Pikes Peak Habitat was honored to receive second place in the worldwide HM King Abdullah II UN World Interfaith Harmony Week competition! Read the announcement!

As part of Pikes Peak Habitat's celebration of U.N. World Interfaith Harmony Week, we hold an annual interfaith dialogue event on the first Sunday in February. These dialogues--which are free and open to community members of all faiths and no faith--feature speakers from diverse faith traditions and an opportunity for participants to engage in a facilitated interfaith discussion.
