We recently kicked-off our 8th home in partnership with Thrivent Financial for Lutherans! Volunteers from local Lutheran congregations attended the celebration which took place the first day of building. Lutheran volunteers will contribute 50% of the volunteer hours and 10% of the funding needed to complete this home.
We are grateful to the City of Long Beach, a longtime partner, for donating the land for this home. Construction is expected to be complete by December 2013 and we look forward to handing the keys over to the new partner homeowners just in time for the holidays!
Thrivent Builds is designed to involve Thrivent members and Lutherans in helping provide a "hand up" to people in need of affordable housing. More than 2,900 homes in the U.S. and around the world have been built with the Thrivent Builds program. If you are interested in volunteering for this and other homes throughout greater Los Angeles, please visit our website.
