Thrivent Financial is pleased to sponsor Habitat for Humanity of Berks County at the Diversity Mixer. For more than 100 years, Thrivent Financial has been helping our members be Wise with Money and Live Generously. Thrivent has been a corporate partner of Habitat for Humanity since 2005, committing more than $252 million to build or repair more than 5,400 homes in the U.S. In Berks County, we helped fund the repair and construction of 20 homes. Habitat for Humanity is currently completing construction of 3 homes on Tulpehocken Street in Reading…and looks forward to beginning their next initiative, the Buttonwood Gateway Project.
Founded in 1988, Habitat for Humanity of Berks County has become one of the major housing leaders in our community for neighborhood revitalization by providing affordable housing and home ownership opportunities for our client families. As a non-profit, Habitat Berks provides low cost mortgages to moderate income families who purchase Habitat homes. In return, Habitat home buyers log 300 sweat equity hours which includes financial and home owner education classes and coaching. Working in this way Habitat Berks provides a "hand-up" rather than a "hand-out" to hard-working individuals and families in our community.
