Habitat for Humanity

Founded in Americus, Georgia, USA, in 1976, Habitat for Humanity today operates around the globe and has helped build, renovate and repair more than 600,000 decent, affordable houses sheltering more than 3 million people worldwide. Every year since 2016, the First United Methodist Church of Loomis has had a group of volunteers go to Weed, CA in support of Habitat for Humanity houses being built or repaired.

In addition, for several years a group from FUMC has traveled to Louisiana to take part in the construction of homes with the Fuller Center for Housing. The Fuller Center for Housing is an organization similar to Habitat for Humanity in that the goal for both is to provide affordable housing for those in need.
