Community volunteers and Thrivent Financial representatives Jason Carter and Jonah Besch came together on Saturday and Sunday, June 11th and 12th at the home site to install an accessibility ramp.

Thrivent Builds Repairs upgrades existing homes through projects like exterior painting, weatherization, porch repair or light landscaping. The program is part of an ongoing partnership between Thrivent Financial and Habitat for Humanity International, called Thrivent Builds with Habitat for Humanity. From the national partnership’s inception in 2005, Thrivent Financial and its members have now committed more than $226 million and more than 4.7 million volunteer hours.

Thrivent Financial’s relationship with Habitat for Humanity brings the financial, volunteer and advocacy resources of Thrivent Financial together with the affordable housing construction leadership of hundreds of local Habitat for Humanity affiliates. FR Jason Carter a Financial Analyst with Thrivent Financial said “This program provides us with more options to serve our community. Upgrading existing homes not only makes the homes safer and more efficient, it also cultivates community pride.”

Thrivent Builds is designed to involve Thrivent members and Christians in helping provide a “hand up” to people in need of affordable housing, offering them a path to greater economic independence. Excluding government funding, Thrivent Builds with Habitat for Humanity is Habitat's largest single source of funding, constructing and repairing more than 4,800 homes in the U.S. and around the world since 2005.
