Catoosa County Habitat for Humanity’s new fundraising initiative is “Adopt-a-House Sponsorship” where local businesses or individuals can give donations at various levels to help build a new Habitat home for a Catoosa County family.

Investing in the Adopt-a-House sponsorship with Catoosa Habitat is a way for organizations to give back to their community in a very visible and tangible way.

“Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope” said Penny Mahon, Catoosa Habitat’s executive director. “With our new sponsorship program we hope to expand on that mission in Catoosa County.”

All the new programs at Catoosa Habitat are designed to engage the community in the mission of Habitat and to bring in new volunteers to their cause. Donors to the “Adopt-a-House Sponsorship” program receive various benefits associated with their level of giving.
