IN MEMORIAL OF BISHOP JOHN E. MCCARTHY
Austin Habitat for Humanity is providing an opportunity for you to put your faith into action! Join Catholics all around Austin as we build another Habitat for Humanity home for another hard-working, deserving family in our community. Bishop McCarthy started this themed-build back in 1999, and we need you to help us continue on with his legacy of partnering with Habitat in providing a hand up, not a hand out for a family in need.
We are so excited to be starting our 25th Catholic Build home in Austin this spring. See below for opportunities to get involved in our 25th Catholic Build.

Future homeowner, Juana, simply wants a safe and stable place to call home for her family. Juana and her four children currently live in a cramped rental house that is in need of significant repairs. Despite working two jobs as a housekeeper, Juana has been unable to put enough money aside to purchase a home of her own. Juana has lived in Austin for 18 years since the age of 18. This is her home and she wants to deepen her roots in the city she loves.
While putting in her required “sweat equity” hours at the Austin Habitat construction site, Juana has enjoyed meeting other future homeowners and building their homes by their side. Never hesitant to volunteer for any task on the job site, Juana has been invaluable keeping home construction progressing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Juana would like to thank the volunteers, donors, and the Austin Catholic community for working alongside her to create a stable and secure home for her and her family! Read more about Juana and her family here.
