Interfaith Works Project
We are so excited to be hosting the 8th Annual Interfaith Works Project in conjunction with the Capital Region Interfaith Housing Initiative in early 2019! Our goal is to mobilize 600 volunteers to help build homes from March 5th until June 5th, 2019.
We invite all faith groups to participate and there are several options on how to get involved.
Here are a few testimonials shared with us by the Anglican Synod Office and All Saints’ Cathedral:
“[Habitat staff’s] good humour and patience with volunteers had a calming effect and helped give a sense of confidence and camaraderie. I was amazed at how much we accomplished during the day, despite our varying skill levels.” ~ Alan
“It was an excellent team-building experience for me being the ‘new kid on the block. I loved getting to know people in a different context. It was also great to meet a few of the other people who were there as a group from Norquest College, newcomers to Canada.” ~ Sharon
“It was cool to learn new skills, while helping families and the organization. It was a lot of fun being able to spend time with my colleagues outside of work.” ~ Rochelle
“I was curious about how the system would work, especially since most of us hadn’t done this type of work before. Everything is so well organized and I’d definitely do it again.” ~ Charis
