In my area there is a pretty active chapter/division/whatever of this group called Habitat for Humanity.

On the note of are they secular, I didn't really know. They seemed secular so checked their FAQ. Found the following quotes (as of 12/8/18):

"Is Habitat for Humanity a Christian organization?

Yes, we are a global nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. All who desire to be a part of this work are welcome, regardless of religious preference or background. We have a policy of building with people in need regardless of race or religion. We welcome volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds."

"Non-proselytizing policy

Habitat for Humanity and its affiliate organizations will not proselytize. Nor will Habitat work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with Habitat. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must adhere to or convert to a particular faith or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith."

So basically it seems they ARE Christian, but are really not pushy, which I can essentially confirm from volunteering experience.

They are a great group and may even have some groups near the FeF.

Hope this helps.
