Build a Home

Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity offers many different opportunities to support our goal of eliminating substandard housing in Dallas. Becoming a Habitat House Sponsor is an excellent way to engage your organization in the community and make a lasting difference in the lives of deserving families. Please join us in helping to build a brighter future for deserving families and your community. Individuals, corporations and religious organizations that support Habitat’s mission provide the tax-deductible donations of money, land and materials that make the work possible.

Levels of Sponsorships

This level of contribution pays for the materials and labor costs associated with building a home. Full house sponsors build a home from start to finish over 8 build days and provide 20-25 volunteers for each team-building day. Full house sponsors also receive recognition on build site signage, the Dallas Habitat website and in the Framework newsletter, among other things.


Half house sponsors are partnered with other group sponsors to complete a full house sponsorship. Sponsoring groups are provided build days for 20-25 volunteers and as with the Full House Sponsorship, we can work with your volunteers or supply the volunteers as needed. Half house sponsors also receive recognition on build site signage, the Dallas Habitat website and in the Framework newsletter.


Team Build sponsors contribute funding and enjoy one build day for 20-25 volunteers. Up to 25 people can participate in an exciting day of teambuilding while constructing a home. Habitat provides building materials, training, supervision, tools and safety equipment. You’ll enhance your company’s image, build employee morale and teach valuable planning and teamwork skills.


Bring together members of your organization for a memorable day of skills training and team building activities in our state-of-the-art woodshop. Your team will play a vital and tangible role in the construction process-framing the walls of a family’s new home. Working together for a common goal, members will build communication, planning and leadership skills.
