Habitat Faith Partnerships

Cleveland Habitat prioritizes relationships with Faith Partners in the community. We do this through our annual Faith Build and Spruce-Ups.

2023 Faith Build

The Faith Build began in 2015 - bringing faith organizations together to help uplift the work of affordable housing. Each church gives a portion of prayers, volunteer power, and funding, to build a home, help a family, and revitalize a neighborhood. This year marks the 14th house and 14th family the program has served. God is good! The Faith Build house is one of five new homes being built on W. 128th Street. 

For more information on the 2023 Faith Build please contact Philip Katsadouros at (216) 318-0274 or pkatsadouros@clevelandhabitat.org

2023 Spruce-Ups

A Spruce-Up is an opportunity for staff and volunteers to work with residents of a neighborhood, assisting with minor exterior repairs, landscaping, and debris removal. It is a way for us to thank the existing residents for the work we have been doing and/or will be doing in their neighborhood.

This year we had 2 Spruce-Ups scheduled:

  • June 6th, 2023 on Shale Avenue
  • September 9th, 2023 on Elwell Avenue.
