Habitat for Humanity
Our 2019 Build
Thank you, St. Francis of Assisi Parish, for your support and hard work on this year’s Habitat for Humanity project. Between builders and lunch providers, over 100 people participated. Our homeowner, Leticia Maldonado, and her girls are very excited to move into their new home after Thanksgiving. Your prayers, financial support, and labor combined to make this happen. We dedicated the home on Saturday, November 16. Deacon Al Casas, Jr. gave the benediction, and Leticia expressed her gratitude alongside her two girls. Click here to watch a video of the dedication on our St. Francis YouTube channel. We look forward to our next build as a parish community in the fall of 2020!
Beginning in 1999, we have teamed with Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio, Inc. (HFHSA) to build an affordable home every fall here in San Antonio. Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio, Inc. (HFHSA) is an ecumenical Christian non-profit housing organization working in partnership with God’s people in need to build decent and affordable houses without interest or profit, thereby witnessing God’s love in action.

Our Next Build
Our 2019 build concluded on October 19. Please check back later for information about our 22nd build in 2020. Many opportunities will be available to serve. We will need people to build, paint, bring lunch, provide water and refreshments for the builders, and support our crew with their excitement and enthusiasm.
Our 2019 Family
Leticia Maldonado and her children, Samantha (11) and Arabelle (9), are excited about being part of the homebuying program and for the opportunity to become homeowners through Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio.
“It has always been a dream of mine to own a home for my children. I have prayed for this home for a long time, and I want to thank Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio for giving me this opportunity. My children are so excited to own their first pet. We can’t wait to get started on the construction!”
