FRAMING two houses IN ONE DAY
FOR HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
Join us us as we build all the frame walls for 2 Habitat for Humanity houses in one day. Organized into teams of 5-10, we’ll hammer together 40-50 frame walls in just a couple of hours, which will be transported to a local foundation for Habitat for Humanity.
All ages and skill levels welcome! All the wood will be precut, so if you can swing a hammer or hold a 2x4 in place, we need you! We even provide the hammer and nails. Children are welcome to work with their families. - We will also have play ground attendants available if your kids need a little break from hammering!
There’s a job for everyone. “Crew Members” will build on the build day, but we’ll also need volunteers to cut wood on the Friday before.

frequently asked questions
Who is leading this project?
Help Build Hope events are organized and ran by Crossroads Missions (crossroadsmissions.com). Since 1999, Help Build Hope events have produced over 1,000 homes for families in need. Crossroads Missions partners with churches and local Habitat for Humanity organizations. They receive building plans from Habitat for Humanity, break them down into smaller plans, wall by wall, and then lead teams of volunteers to assemble each wall. Crossroads Missions will provide all the tools and a Director on the day of the build to guide our teams. The church needs to only provide volunteers. Go to helpbuildhope.com or crossroadsmissions.com for more!
Where is this house going?
The houses we build this summer will go to the Deldridge neighborhood of Seattle, as part of Habitat for Humanity's Highland Terrace neighborhood. We will have opportunities to "follow the house," and volunteer until completion! You can be a part of these houses going from a pile of lumber on the ground to a completed home!
How much the event cost?
The event costs nothing to participate! The church covers the cost of all the lumber, transportation, and administration through our Christmas Eve offering, fundraisers, and donations. There is no cost to participate! We just want you to come out and hammer some walls together! If you would like to donate, you can do so on our giving page.
Do I have to be a Christian to participate?
Absolutely not. Everyone is welcome! We believe that providing affordable housing is an expression of our Christian faith, but that work is not reserved for people who consider themselves Christians! Everyone is welcome. There won't be any bait-and-switch worship services or sermons. We're not trying to proselytize, we just want to build houses for families in need with you!
How old do children have to be to participate?
It is entirely up to parents/guardians if their children are able to help on the build day. All of the lumber will be precut, and there will be no power tools used--only hammer and nails. Pastor Ric's daughter has participated in Help Build Hope projects since she was 3. Of course, he's crazy. We will provide playground attendants if your kids need a break.
What do I need to bring?
Comfortable clothes, work gloves, sunscreen, and friends! Please leave your tools at home. We will provide all the hammers, nails, levels, and markers.
Where do I sign up?
Send us an email to the church office, and we'll do our best to get all your questions answered! Thank you for changing lives with us!
