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 for Fall 2018 & Winter 2019 with current build dates: 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.
