Habitat For Humanity, Thrivent, Local Churches Join To Help Family's Dream Of Homeownership

Monday, October 12, 2020

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga, Thrivent, and local Christian churches broke ground on a home on Aug. 29, as part of the ongoing partnership between Habitat and Thrivent, which helps families in the U.S. and across the globe obtain strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.

Through the partnership of Habitat and Thrivent, local churches, and other volunteers, new homeowner Tanisha is realizing the dream of owning her own home. 

“Anything worth having is worth waiting for,” said Tanisha. “Thank everybody for partnering with me to build this house. I’m excited and ready!”

To date, 10 homes have been built in Chattanooga through the partnership between Habitat and Thrivent.  Last year Thrivent committed over $12 million to the partnership with Habitat International. Since the partnership began in 2005, and through 2019, Thrivent and its members have contributed more than $268 million and more than 6.2 million volunteer hours to Habitat. 

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga’s President and CEO David Butler offered appreciation to partners for the upcoming effort. “We wouldn’t experience the success we have without partners like Thrivent.  They have been extremely supportive of our efforts and play active roles in our builds.  We are extremely grateful for them.”

Thrivent Financial Consultant for the South Region Mark Gluckner said, “The partnership with Habitat is a natural fit for us. We encourage members in our organization to be involved with the Faith Build program with both their time and generosity. For us, there’s simply no better investment than the stability a home brings to a family. This is the 10th home we’ve worked on with Habitat, so we’ve seen first-hand how home ownership changes the life not only of the owner but also for future generations. Nothing pleases us more than to be a part of that.”

Thrivent remains the largest non-governmental supporter of Habitat for Humanity International.

I Threw Social Media To The Wind And Couldn't Be Happier

Two weeks ago I did something monumental. I deleted all of my social media accounts. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok (yes I had TikTok) are all gone. Why? Because today I choose to live my life based on what brings me joy. When I realized that social media invited more dread than joy I knew what I had to do.
