This year's event will bring together community members and groups from local businesses, schools, churches, and more as we build a home from footers to finish in just four weeks! From Oct. 19-26th, we will welcome in volunteer groups each day to assist our carpenters in constructing the new home. By the project's conclusion, we will present a beautiful, affordable home to a local, mountain family.
When the house is officially complete, we will host a separate Open House event to celebrate with our new homeowners! Please make sure we have your email address so that we can be sure to send you an invite. There's nothing like being there to witness what your work has accomplished!
Don't wait to sign up! Spots are limited and will fill up fast! Visit our event page to inquire and reserve your volunteer team's specific date. Click the Volunteer button on the event page, pick your volunteer team and your date, and support your community!
Also, be sure to support the event by giving. All donations help buy the materials, equipment, and tools we need to build a high quality, lasting home.
The Perry County Community Foundation is matching all donations now through Oct. 31 as part of their "Supporting Success in Perry County" program challenge. Your support will help us do twice as much for families in need of affordable, high quality, safe, and long-lasting housing - the family we serve during our Community House-Raising event and the many others we'll serve throughout the year.
Our goal is to raise $5,000, which when matched by the Foundation, will result in $10,000 for us to spend on making the housing dreams of mountain families a reality. When you give, you'll be able to see the home you've helped us build and the family you've blessed.
Join us in making our communities stronger and better. Help us give our families and our region a brighter future. Each home we build is a message to the world that we believe in East Kentucky and that hopes and dreams live here, too. Be a part of our mission and watch your gift grow!
