Community House-Raising is a week-long event in which hundreds of local community members, business teams, schools, and church groups reserve their spot to help build a home for a family in need.
We're building a brand-new home for a local family in six weeks or less! That means we need lots of extra hands. Be a part of this special community event and make a lasting mark on the lives of others!
Donate to this year's event to help us bring an affordable, high-quality, forever home to a local family in need. When you give, your gift will be matched - you'll be helping twice as much!

Community House-Raising

A Fundraising & Volunteer Event

You Can Help Change a Local Family's Life!

This year’s event will bring together community members and groups from local businesses, schools, churches, and more as we build a home from footers to finish in six weeks or less! This fall (dates TBA), we will welcome in volunteer groups each day to assist our carpenters in constructing the new home. By the project’s conclusion, we will present a beautiful, affordable home to a local, mountain family.  

Don’t wait to sign up! Spots are limited and will fill up fast! We welcome both individual and group/team volunteers. Click the volunteer button below to inquire and reserve your or your team’s specific date. Pick your team and your date and support your community!

We also invite individuals, businesses, restaurants, government offices, and more to sponsor the Community House Raising event! If you sign up as a sponsor by Friday, Oct. 18, we will put your name on our official event T-shirt and list your name in a Thank-You ad in our local newspaper (and on social media). If you decide to sponsor the event after Oct. 18, we will be sure to publicize your donation at our upcoming Open House celebration for this new home! Click the button below to download (PDF) the sponsorship form, which is on the back of the event flyer.

Support the Event By Giving

Your gift will be matched now through Oct. 31!

Give now and your gift will be matched!

The Perry County Community Foundation is matching all donations now through Oct. 31 as part of their “Supporting Success in Perry County” program challenge. Your support will help us do twice as much for families in need of affordable, high quality, safe, and long-lasting housing – the family we serve during our Community House-Raising event and the many others we’ll serve throughout the year.

Our goal is to raise $5,000, which when matched by the Foundation will result in $10,000 for us to spend on making the housing dreams of mountain families a reality. When you give, you’ll be able to see the home you’ve helped us build and the family you’ve blessed. 

Join us in making our communities stronger and better. Help us give our families and our region a brighter future. Each home we build is a message to the world that we believe in East Kentucky and that hopes and dreams live here, too. Be a part of our mission and watch your gift grow!
