World Habitat Day

By April 19, 2016Events

Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of World Habitat Day!

World Habitat Day is a day set aside annually to recognize the basic right of all humanity to adequate shelter, and to encourage grassroots action toward ending poverty housing. On Monday, Oct. 5, 2016, as in years past, Habitat for Humanity joins with our partners around the world to rededicate ourselves to a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Moment of Prayer Oct. 5 at Noon

On Oct. 5 at noon, join your voice with Habitat for Humanity supporters all over the world and help raise awareness of the global movement and importance of housing issues.


Join us in the following prayer:

Home. God, give us the hands, hearts and resources to continue building homes for – and with – our neighbors in need.

Hope. Thank you for the hope you offer and prayers you answer through the Habitat mission. Help us to be your hands and feet as you love and provide for your children.

Community. Guide us in breaking down barriers and connecting people through communities. Build your Kingdom here as it is in Heaven.
