Habitat for Humanity

Building dreams…one board at a time! Join us and share in this home-building effort to support those in need in our community. Can’t swing a hammer? You can help in other ways. For example, by painting or providing a meal to our dedicated workers.

The Spirit of Christ Builds Habitat Home #18

Join us for our 18th Christ Church Habitat Home!  No experience necessary! Whether you already know construction, are willing to learn, want to serve lunch, help greet/sign-in, or would just like to deliver ice and water to our thirsty workers, we need everyone’s hands to complete this mission.

As we await local government build approvals on our Habitat Home #18, join the team for smaller repair/build projects as part of our Home Repair Ministry. Many of these projects are done during the work week. Only work the days when you can.

You can also sign up by emailing Volunteer Coordinator Mary Kay Boitano-Nelson marykay.b.nelson@gmail.com.

Needville Home Completion in 2021

A small, but valiant team of Habitat Supervisors worked during the hot summer hours to give Gloria and her two foster sons a place to call home. While Christ Church did not finance the construction of the home, we provided the labor used to build it. View the photos here.

Summer 2022

Last summer, one of our industrious Christ Church members partnered with Fort Bend Habitat to build 4 playhouses for the families that had received homes previously. One person can always make a difference in many lives and bring many smiles!

General Information about a Habitat Home

Christ Church works in conjunction with Fort Bend Habitat to build a Habitat for Humanity home for a qualified family.

  • Habitat’s philosophy is “a hand up, not a hand out.”
  • Volunteers from Christ Church work alongside the recipient of the home.
  • The family must perform 300 “sweat equity” hours.
  • If you know of a family that may qualify, encourage them to apply by contacting Habitat at 281.403.0708 or completing the Pre-Application.
