Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County (HFHPBC) is driven by the desire to give tangible expression to the love of God through the work of eliminating poverty housing. But, the love must not be in words only – it must be true love, which shows itself in action.
A partnership with HFHPBC provides an opportunity for you and your congregation to put your faith and love into action. A Faith Partnership is so much more than building homes – it is about tearing down walls and the opportunity to fellowship with diverse groups of people. It is about serving God by serving others.
