Volunteers don’t need to have any building experience; just a good attitude and a desire to learn! You must be 16 years of age to volunteer. Volunteer work days are on scheduled Friday and Saturdays from 8am-4pm. Work on the home is expected to be completed in late October. Starting last year, all sign-ups are being done electronically.

The Faithful Builders Coalition was formed in 1994 with Holy Cross as one of the charter members. Over the years, Faithful Builders and a number of members have been recognized by Habitat for Humanity of Omaha for service to the organization. Individuals from the Faithful Builders have volunteered for key roles within Habitat including: property acquisition, family selection, and construction management. Congregations participating in the coalition have changed somewhat over the years but many of the original members remain in the current roster: Holy Cross Lutheran, Saint Elizabeth Ann Catholic, Saint James Catholic, Saint Leo Catholic, Saint Michael Lutheran, Saint Paul’s Lutheran (Millard), Saint Wenceslaus Catholic, Rejoice! Lutheran, Westwood Community, and St John Vianney Catholic.
