Peace by Piece: Interfaith Build

Chesapeake Habitat for Humanity


Christian, Islamic and Jewish partners worked side by side for a year and a half designing and implementing the first ever Interfaith Build with Chesapeake Habitat for Humanity in building two homes in East Baltimore. BHC played an integral part in the success of this mission. A new steering committee will begin meeting in August of 2008 to begin the process for 2008-2009. We will move from building a specific house, to being an interfaith volunteer corps.  We will continue to be intentional about educating our partners about the three faiths.  And we will work side by side on Habitat houses, continuing to reach out in faith to the communities we serve.

For more information on being a supporter of this exciting “put your faith into action” effort,
