Thrivent Builds is a local organization of churches, religious organizations, individuals, and Thrivent Financial Representatives, who support Habitat’s goal of providing safe, affordable housing to those in need.   A committee of volunteers from member churches together with Habitat participation oversees the program.

The Thrivent Builds program works in cooperation with Habitat MidOhio to support its mission of bringing people together to inspire hope, build homes, empower families, and develop communities.


Since 2007, Thrivent Builds has made a significant impact on Habitat MidOhio’s ability to pursue its mission by:

  • Building 23 houses in Franklin County
  • Providing over 55,000 hours of volunteer construction 
  • Raising more than $300,000.00
  • Qualifying for and receiving $2,000,000 in Thrivent Financial support
  • Participating in Thrivent Builds Repair projects 
  • As a result of our efforts, over 100 children and adults in 23 families are living the dream of homeownership in a safe, decent, and affordable home.
