November 2 - 10, 2019
Celebrate our 40th Anniversary by building homes & hope in Tucson!
You are invited to join Habitat for Humanity Tucson’s special build celebrating our 40th anniversary of building homes, community, and hope in Southern Arizona!
Sonoran Desert Village will center around four days of building homes in the heart of the Flowing Wells neighborhood. The primary challenge to the Flowing Wells neighborhood is ongoing poverty, with over 25% of residents living below the poverty line. Working to combat the housing crisis in Flowing Wells alongside a committed group of neighbors and residents, you will build change from the ground up. Not only will we explore the city of Tucson, but we will also experience the U.S./Mexico border firsthand, including a visit to Sonora, Mexico* (optional).
Discover your role in our global community, how compassion and justice ripple outwards, and how every one of us deserves a safe place to call home.
By participating you will:
- Build strength, stability, self-reliance, and shelter in Tucson
- Discover what gives you a sense of place and what we, border-dwellers, consider ours
- Learn firsthand how Habitat Tucson is serving vulnerable families in the Flowing Wells neighborhood
- Network with leaders from across the country that are committed to this urgent work
- Invest in Habitat’s worldwide mission of providing safe, affordable, and empowering housing for low-income people and families—one hammer and nail at a time.
Welcome to the city of gastronomy!
Tucson is known for ‘the best 23 miles of Mexican food North of the border.’ From chiltepin-infused cold brew coffee to kick-start the day, to a punchy magenta prickly pear margarita for happy hour, to ice cream made with honey from the Sonoran Desert, take a bite out of Tucson!
Invest in Habitat’s worldwide mission of providing safe, affordable, and empowering housing for low-income people and families—one hammer and nail at a time.
