Sponsoring a Habitat for Humanity house is a great way for your church, your company or your organization to help your community while building teamwork and a sense of pride.
A full sponsorship includes providing enough money and volunteers to build the entire house.
Partial sponsorships involve sharing tasks and funding with another organization or with Lakeway Area Habitat for Humanity.
We can help you find the right level of sponsorship to fit your capability and interests.
Your Partnership Can Provide:
• An opportunity for your employees or members to work in partnership with the family to build their home.
• The donation of construction materials or professional services.
• Hospitality services such as lunch, snacks and drinks for volunteers.
• Mentoring for your Habitat homeowner family.
• Publicity within your organization and your community.
Our Construction Consultant supervises the overall construction of the house. Lakeway Area Habitat provides skilled crew leaders from our experienced volunteers. Both skilled and unskilled volunteers are welcome, and we do provide training as needed.
Your volunteers with physical limitations can help with painting, detailed finish work, hospitality services, or administrative tasks. Or they can work in our Thrift Store to raise additional funds.
Our Community Outreach Coordinator will help you plan the work schedule to meet the needs and availability of your volunteers, including working on Saturdays. We’ll tell you how many volunteers are needed each day and help you organize and recruit your work crews. We provide house plans, tools, and arrange for delivery of all construction materials and subcontractor services.
The excitement builds as co-workers from different departments, supervisors and employees, committee members, church members, and family members work together, learn together, sweat together, and see immediate, tangible results as the house takes form. They know they’re changing lives and improving their community. What greater legacy can you leave?
