The GSHFH sponsors "theme build" programs intended to attract specific interest groups wishing to take on an entire house build. Plans for 2007-08 includes a Women's Build at an undesignated location, a new home on Fordham Street, two additional projects at locations to be determined, and a Circle of Faith build on Pomona Street in Springfield.
