Building Hope Luncheon

Building Hope Luncheon

Join us on Thursday, May 4, 2017 for the Building Hope Luncheon

Each year, luncheon guests are inspired by the powerful stories of families who have built brighter futures for themselves through Habitat. Your support helps us build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.

In 2016, we raised $396,032 to keep Habitat building and repairing even more homes in partnership with families in need, but it doesn't end there. In 2017 we intend to raise even more critical dollars to support Habitat families through building and repairing homes.

Our Keynote Speaker for the 2017 Building Hope Luncheon is Matthew Desmond, Ph.D., author of New York Times bestseller Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City. Read more about Matthew Desmond here. 

Online registration is now closed. If you would like to attend, please contact Kadija Diallo at or (215) 765-6000 ext. 14.
