Join Habitat in Giving Tuesday


Take a Trip with Habitat to Costa Rica!


Open the door to opportunity

Your Thrivent Financial membership not only opens the door to financial security for you and your family; it also-quite literally-opens one for families who live in poverty. By joining a Thrivent Builds Worldwide trip to Cost Rica, you’ll:

  • Experience a life-changing event as you put your faith into action.
  • Build deep relationships with your teammates and Costa Ricans as you build homes side by side with them.
  • Have the hard-to-replicate, heart satisfaction of knowing your action makes a profound difference.

Open your eyes to the world

Thrivent Builds Worldwide is a powerful way for members and other volunteers to express their faith. It’s an opportunity to build simple, decent homes in partnership with Habitat Costa Rica and the partner families- and to see the world with a different perspective.

Opening the way- your trip is simplified

The Thrivent Builds program has created the Costa Rica premier destination to be as simple as possible to participate. Once you arrive in Costa Rica, your needs will be well-met. Except for your airfare, the following costs are included:

  • Transportation to and from the airport, hotel and building site.
  • Lodging in secure and clean hotels.
  • Three meals a day, snacks and pure drinking water.
  • Engaging and informative cross-cultural activities.
  • Meaningful work at well-organized and supervised build sites.
