Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio
Our 2022 Build
We are excited to announce that the St. Francis of Assisi Habitat team has partnered with St. Luke’s Catholic Church for the next Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio home build. We moved our project to a Spring build. The home construction began on April 22, 2022, and will continue for the next six weeks. We will be covering both Friday and Saturday build dates through the completion of the home. Our partnership with St. Luke’s will enable us to take “ownership” of the home build process as well as give our group the opportunity to build relationships with our homeowner and neighboring Catholic parish members. Please check your calendars for the Fridays and Saturdays between April 22- June 25, 2022 to see when you will be able to join us!
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. You can watch a video featuring St. Francis parishioner Julie Mellin talking about our parish’s partnership with Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio, Inc. at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x11UcpocRzM.

Our 2022 Family
Tiffney Taylor is ecstatic to be our Habitat homeowner for this build. She hopes her affordable mortgage payment will allow her to work less and have more time to spend with her family. She is currently working two jobs to be able to afford her monthly rental costs.
“I am very excited that I will soon have my very own home. I have worked hard for this, and on one income this is very affordable for me. I am looking forward to decorating and having my own yard so that I can enjoy having family over to visit. I am very happy about the Habitat program. Thank you, Habitat, for giving us this opportunity!”
Ms. Taylor says the first thing she will do when she receives the keys to her new home is say a prayer of thanks. She is excited to invite her family over for cookouts. She hopes her new mortgage will allow her to afford a reliable car.
