The Casa Habitat for Humanity

The Casa Habitat for Humanity

Habitat 1st build day 9.21.13Casa community members are invited to participate in Habitat for Humanity building projects as a team known as the “Casa Builders.” Be a part of this life changing work.

Volunteers must be at least 16 years old to participate in building, but there are a wide range of other roles that help, including organizing lunches for construction teams or babysitting for young families working on the site.

Our Flyer Winter/Spring 2019 with current build dates: here.

The Dubale and Aba family for whom we are building in spring 2019 bio here.


Find out how you can support the Casa Habitat Ministry through your Arizona Credit for Contributions to Qualifying Charitable Organizations (formerly known as The Working Poor Tax Credit).

  • If you cannot volunteer your “time and talent” in building with our Casa Habitat Ministry, please consider contributing a bit of treasure.  Your contributions helps us build homes for families in need. We hope to help build 2 more homes in 2018 and we are asking you to consider including us in your tax credit contribution.
  • By donating to Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona and indicating your donation is on behalf of The Franciscan Renewal Center’s Habitat Ministry (on the memo line) see example, you will receive a dollar-for-dollar credit toward your Arizona income tax payment.

Habitat for Humanity ALSO accepts in-kind donations of building materials and labor.  Check out the Habitat website for details on making this donation.  Such generous in-kind donations (on behalf of our FRC/Casa Habitat Ministry) increases the number of homes that we can help to sponsor and build.
