Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity works with families and volunteers to build homes and strengthen our communities. We build together because we live together and want to put Jesus' teachings to work in the heart of Texas and Texans.

From the Building Committee
The weather continues to stymie the progress on the Gonzales home but we were able to finish cleaning up the paint and yard at our Sloan storage house on Saturday. We extend a big thank you to Joseph Selem for leading our group of volunteers!
The extended weather forecast promises a lot more rain so a workday this Saturday looks doubtful. Please continue to follow us on Facebook for updates.
From the Fundraising Committee
We are working on creating an Erath County Habitat for Humanity signature fundraising event. There are some really exciting ideas. More on this as plans come together.
Thank you Studio 6:14 Dance for pledging to donate 10% of your tuition revenue for the months of April AND May to Erath County Habitat!
We welcome other Erath County Businesses to pledge their support as well. If you or your employer are interested in doing so, please send us an email atErathCountyHabitat@outlook.com. We will feature your pledge in our newsletter and on our webpage at ErathCountyHabitatforHumanity.org.
From the Public Relations Committee
ECHH has signed up to Adopt A Spot through Stephenville Parks And Recreation Department. Look for our sign along the Bosque River Trail! We look forward to working with SPARD and for putting action to our motto: “Together, we build better lives!”
We are also preparing a Builder’s Basket for Stephenville Optimist Club’s Fundraising Auction this Friday May 3rd. We love lending a hand in support of other Civic organizations!
