St. Anthony on the Desert is part of a non-profit fifteen church coalition that builds two to three homes a year in the Phoenix area. This coalition has been in existence since 2002. Each year St. Anthony donates a minimum of $2,000 plus a backyard tool kit for the new homeowners. The builds are on Saturday and usually involve 25-30 volunteers on each site. Work projects include roofing, dry walling, exterior and interior framing. This valley-wide ministry represents a hand up and not a hand out. For information on upcoming projects, please contact Jon Thom.
A new Episcopal Habitat Coalition has been scheduled for Saturday, January 20. The task for this day will be framing of a townhouse. The story of the family who will call this home is below. Contact Jon Thom if you are interested in participating.
