Our interfaith outreach dinner, held in May 2013, was an
inspiring evening that will make a significant impact in our mission
to come. To see over 60 people from eight different faith traditions come
together to share a meal, to hear from key leaders within greater Los Angeles’
faith community, and to brainstorm ways about how we can come together to build
hope and better our communities was truly a dream come true.
We used the momentum and ideas from this dinner to organize
the building of our first interfaith home. The building of this home will
kick off in November as part of seven new homes we will build in Lynwood,
California. It will also be a part of Habitat for Humanity’s nationwide
goal to expand and enhance interfaith involvement with Los Angeles, New York
City, Atlanta, Denver, Seattle, and Grand Rapids taking the lead.
Below is a video highlighting the groundbreaking night.
