Thrivent Building on Faith Month

Founded in 2000, Northern Ocean Habitat has been providing homeownership opportunities for hardworking families for 18 years. Northern Ocean Habitat serves the northern region of Ocean County, and has built 18 affordable homes and rehabbed 60 Sandy-impacted homes in partnership with local families. Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. Habitat for Humanity and Thrivent are partnering to help make affordable housing a reality for Northern Ocean through the Building on Faith program. It’s a partnership powered by Christian faith—and a passion to build stronger families, churches and communities.
