Good Shepherd Lutheran Church participates in Habitat for Humanity housing builds through the Lutheran Coalition for Habitat, a non-profit with eleven area Lutheran churches as members. GSLC contributes to the Lutheran Coalition both financially, and through the efforts of GSLC members who volunteer to participate in housing builds. Additionally, GSLC members participate in annual Lutheran Coalition fund raising events.
Dear Supporter of the Lutheran Coalition for Habitat:
The Lutheran Coalition Ministry has helped to build 32 homes for families in our community since its inception in 1994. We could not have accomplished this without the volunteer and financial contributions from our church family supporters.
We were pleased to be able to complete our 32nd Habitat home in Canton last year, conforming to the Covid-19 restrictions and financially supporting the build with $45K. Without your help and donations, we would not have been able to help 32 families move out of substandard housing and into a well-constructed home they will own after paying back an interest free mortgage. The Habitat homeowners also invest 200 volunteer hours in other Family Partners’ home construction in addition to working on their own home.
This year, we are excited to build our 33rd home, and ask your consideration to continue your support of the Lutheran Coalition for Habitat for Humanity ministry through the:
Lutheran Coalition’s upcoming build days
