Did you know that one of our city’s greatest needs is in the area of affordable housing? An estimated 153,000 families in San Antonio have an unmet housing need, including 71,000 children living in overcrowded housing. At Oak Hills Church, we’ve decided to do something about it. We are partnering with Habitat for Humanity to help provide long-term housing solutions to families in need, and we’re asking you to take part.
Support affordable housing by giving to fund this home and future Oak Hills Church sponsored homes. Each new home costs $57,000. 100% of your gifts will go towards construction costs. Through our "Square Foot Campaign," you can sponsor a square foot or more. One square foot costs $57. With 1,000 sponsorships, we can complete one new home! Click HERE to give now! (Select your campus, enter your dollar amount, select one time gift, select fund: Habitat for Humanity).
Serve alongside the home-buyer to help build their new home over nine consecutive Saturdays, September 12 - November 7. You can build one time, or multiple weekends, you do not have to commit to every weekend. Each service day, approximately 30 construction volunteers will work under the direction of Habitat’s building coordinator to build this home. Anyone age 14 and above is eligible to work on the construction site, and you don’t need any special skills, just a willingness to serve. COVID-19 UPDATE: Masks are required at all times during the build. Sign up closes August 22! Click HERE to sign up!
Support the construction efforts each Saturday, September 12 - November 7 by providing lunch. Lunch teams purchase or make lunches for all the volunteers, staff, and home-buyers working on their sponsored home, including all the paper products, serving utensils, ice, drinks, and desserts. Tackle it yourself or recruit your family, small group, friends, or neighbors to join in. All ages can help serve lunch! COVID-19 UPDATE: Masks are required at all times during lunch service.

We invite you to pray for the project. Click HERE to download and print the weekly prayer guide to join us in covering the project in prayer. You can also pray for the specific family who will receive their new home. They are looking forward to starting on their house and learning how to take care of it inside and out through all of the Home Owner Readiness Classes.
