Habitat for Humanity Workday

September 21, 2024 at 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Habitat for Humanity builds strength, security and self-reliance through homeownership. Join a team on the next St. Luke’s Build Day to help build and revitalize homes in East Winter Garden.

It’s an exciting time for West Orange Habitat for Humanity as they have just completed four homes and are beginning the next set of three homes in East Winter Garden. Families have been selected for these homes and are anxious to work alongside you, our volunteers, to build their own home and homes of others. Families qualify for Habitat by demonstrating a housing need (affordability, substandard conditions, overcrowding), their willingness to partner with us by investing 200 hours of sweat equity, attending financial education classes, saving for a down payment, and repaying a no-interest mortgage to Habitat once they close on their home.

Join us on Saturday, September 21 for the next Habitat Build Day! 

Next Build Date: Saturday, September 21, 2024

Arrival Time: 8:45 a.m.

Build Time: 9:00 a.m. to approx. 2:00 p.m.

Location: TBA

Build days are scheduled from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. but may end early, and you are welcome to leave whenever your other Saturday commitments require.

Volunteers must be 17 or older and be willing to sign and bring a volunteer waiver.

All tools and instructions are provided. No construction experience is necessary — you may even pick up a new skill or two while you partner with other St. Lukers to make a difference for families in our community.

Come out and spend a Saturday giving back with Habitat for Humanity!

Helping it all come together!

Habitat Mentors Needed

Habitat for Humanity is looking for Mentors to walk beside families for 9 months as their new home is being built. Mentors attend training, monthly Family Service Committee meetings and regularly check in with the Habitat family. If you have the gift of Mercy and Wisdom, this serving opportunity may be for you!

Mentorship means people who:  

  • Care about families and who are patient, instructive, compassionate and responsible
  • Can commit to about 9 months to walk with the family
  • Agree to attend one mentor training session, and a monthly zoom meeting with the family services committee meeting to update the committee on their family.

Mentors agree to: (these are just basics, more information is provided)

  • Attend a one-hour training session at their convenience and receive a training manual
  • Attend Family Service committee meeting/Zoom once a month to update on progress
  • Be the family first point of contact for West Orange Habitat following guidelines
  • Not to provide any monetary or in kind gifts to family
  • Regularly connect with the family by phone, in person, text, email for about 9 months
  • Pray for and positively impact the family with joy!
  • Walk the journey with the family to answer questions and ensure they complete:
    200 hours of sweat equity (300 for a married couple)
  • Financial Literacy classes (we host/provide these for families only/no mentors)
  • Saving for a down payment
  • Maintain good credit – again, mentor training is provided for this)
