How it works
During this challenging and unprecedented time, Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity is working together with our community to build homes, unity, and hope. While El Paso County is home to a diversity of opinions and beliefs, one thing we can all agree on is that everyone deserves a safe and decent place to call home.
We are bringing together congregations and communities from a variety of traditions to volunteer, side-by-side, to build affordable homes for families in El Paso County. It will be a time of celebrating tolerance, cooperation, and love for one’s neighbor. Here is how it works:
- Invite 5 members of your community to volunteer (no experience necessary, but must be at least 16 years old).
- Your group will be paired with a team of local volunteers from a different belief tradition.
- The two groups will work together, will share lunch together, and will stand unified as friends and equals.
- Interfaith Build Days are scheduled throughout the year. Contact us to learn how your community can reserve a spot and can help us build in unity!
In the Episcopal Church, we promise, as baptized Christians, to respect the dignity of every human being. The work of Habitat for Humanity promotes human dignity and gives volunteers the opportunity to work in the fields of hope. By coming together as an interfaith community to do this work, we witness to the all-embracing love of God in this world; we help make the world a better, and more beautiful, place.
Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity Interfaith Build is an opportunity to not only lay a physical foundation but also an emotional and mental foundation, for all faith groups, to come together as one, united for one common cause- HUMANITY. I joined the Interfaith Build because I wanted to show our community that Islam is built on a foundation of compassion for our neighbors regardless of their faith. We Muslims work hard to seek out charitable opportunities that reap great rewards with God, we strive for peace and harmony with our neighbors and lend a helping hand anywhere we can. To see a family walk into their home for the first time and be able to call a permanent place home makes every minute of hard work worth it.

Pray for those touched by Pikes Peak Habitat
We would like to recognize this ever-growing list of partners, friends, supporters, volunteers, and donors. The Interfaith Build for Unity project would be nothing without the participation and enthusiasm of our local leaders.
