We Need YOU Now More Than Ever!



Hello Friends,

At Lawrence County Habitat for Humanity we have just been made aware of a faithful friend making a very generous matching gift challenge.  This donor has offered a gift of $15,000 to Lawrence County Habitat for Humanity IF we can match that amount in donations from other friends like you by year’s end!

We don’t have to tell you that this has been a ROUGH year for everyone.  But through it all, God has been extraordinarily faithful and gracious.  Through God’s grace he has honored our commitment to “provide simple, decent, affordable housing” to those who qualify for the Habitat for Humanity program.  By the end of December we will have put three new homeowners in their “forever” homes in 2020!

As excited as we are about what we have been able to accomplish in 2020, looking to the future we know there are steep financial challenges facing us.  The approximate cost to build a Habitat for Humanity home in Lawrence County is $95,000, that is after volunteer labor and donations of some building materials.  After rehabbing these three existing homes (above) we plan to start construction on a new home in 2021.  If you didn’t already know, Habitat homeowners pay a mortgage and taxes.  They must complete many hours of sweat equity, homeowner education courses and community service to obtain a zero percent interest rate mortgage loan through Habitat.

This matching gift challenge is so important to future homeowners that our board of directors has personally committed $5,000 toward our goal!  We hope that you too will be able to open your hearts to help us meet the challenge that has been set before us. 

Please join us in giving God’s people a hand-up, not a hand-out with Lawrence County Habitat for Humanity.  So that we can take advantage of this very generous offer, please return your gift by December 15th.  

If you have questions, please call the office, if no answer, please leave a message and we will return your call.  Thank you in advance for considering your gift.
