Habitat for Humanity

Let’s Build a House Together 

Join us Saturday, September 29th for a Habitat for Humanity Panel Build Event in the West Des Moines UMC parking lot. We will have the opportunity to build all the walls for a new home for a low-income Des Moines area family right here in our church parking lot. A Panel Build is a fun and unique volunteer experience offered by Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity. Habitat supplies the wood, other building materials, tools, safety equipment, and professional supervision. WDMUMC supplies volunteer crew leaders and the volunteers.  Half day and full day shifts are available and youth 16 years and older can help too.

Contact Colleen.Kummet@gmail.com or 515-802-8953 for more information. Sign up with your family, friends or a small group and let’s build a house together for a family in need!!

Need Affordable Housing?

Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity is looking to partner with families and individuals who are in need of affordable housing. We provide affordable homeownership opportunities to those with low or moderate income. In August, we will host a series of meetings where interested persons can learn more and apply for our homeownership program. Are you willing to work with us to help distribute our opportunity to those who may need it?  Click picture for more information.
