The Casa Habitat for Humanity
Casa 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.

Not a “builder?” How else can you help?
You can help out the Habitat Ministry by providing breakfasts and lunches for the 35+ members of our volunteer construction teams. This gives our build volunteers a hearty breakfast and lunch while they give their time and energy to eliminate homelessness, one family at a time.
How do you feed 35 people breakfast and lunch? We have a fund to help cover the costs, we need you to shop and “make and bake.”
- Provide the entire meal(s) or parts of the meal without any cost to you. Sign-up in hospitality or through an email indicating that you want to help with meals. You also bring the food to the Habitat build site; meet the volunteers and see the build. Please keep your receipt and submit it for reimbursement.
- Or help us keep the lunch fund available into the future: get a group of friends and/or partner with 3 other kind-hearted folks who also donate $25.00 ($100.00 total) and contribute the funds and the Habitat ministry team will do the shopping!
Email the The Casa Habitat ministry (thecasahabitat(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)thecasa.org) to indicate your interest in either option and to find out more details.
Miracles happen when we all work together!
How to support The Casa Habitat Ministry:
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 4 homes in 2019 and 2020 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.
