Habitat for Humanity Tucson completed its sixth Thrivent Build home in December 2012 for the Jaimez/Ibarra family. We are excited to have been approved for the funds for a seventh which began on April 20, 2013 and will be dedicated in December 2013 for the Marcum family!
Levi Khan – a Thrivent Builds Homeowner
The ongoing Thrivent Builds project allows Habitat and Thrivent to more closely engage with our community’s many Lutheran congregations, as they put their faith into action and become a visible symbol to our community of compassion and care.
Join us as we work on the Thrivent Build home. Gather a group of family or friends, or organize a group from your church to spend a day learning about construction– and making a difference! Or, come out on your own and meet other dedicated volunteers!

Founded to help Lutherans care for and support one another in time of need, Thrivent Financial is a faith-based membership organization guided by Christian principles, and is called upon to improve the quality of life of its members, their families and their communities by providing solutions that focus on financial security, wellness and caring for others.

Why did Thrivent Financial and Habitat form this alliance?
Participating in this alliance makes sense for both organizations. As a faith-based membership organization, Thrivent Financial’s mission is to care for others. Similarly, Habitat seeks to work with organizations that share its values and want to help eliminate poverty housing. A home is the biggest financial asset most families own and a key ingredient to achieving economic independence. Providing safe, decent, affordable housing is a demonstration of the organizations’ values.
