Habitat for Humanity of Wake County

Habitat for Humanity of Wake County Habitat Wake builds safe, affordable homes and communities in partnership with Wake County and Johnston County families, sponsors and volunteers.
Habitat for Humanity of Wake County joins with individuals, businesses and congregations to build safe, affordable homes in partnership with families living at modest income levels. Habitat Wake helps people build and buy their own homes. It works by giving a hand up, not a hand out.
(100)

Qualified homebuyers partner with Habitat Wake to buy safe, affordable homes. Homebuyers take homeowner education classes, pay $1,700 in closing costs, and complete 200 'sweat equity' hours building their home and the homes of their neighbors. Upon completion of construction, partner families pay an affordable mortgage. Our model is made possible by sponsors, individual donors, volunteers, and ReStore shoppers.

Mission: Our vision is for every family to live in a healthy home, in a peaceful neighborhood, in a sustainable, diverse, tolerant, and vibrant community.

Yesterday, members of the Baptist Faith Coalition pledged to help build the Beloved Community as part of our annual #MLKDayofService.

We kicked off the day building walls in the construction facility and the Baptist Coalition hosted a special wall blessing in the afternoon, while also welcoming the beautiful baffles painted by youth.

Many thanks to all of these churches for leading the way and showcasing Dr. King's vision.

We had so much fun showing President of TowneBank - North Carolina Anne Conner around Habitat Wake! Today, she met our leadership team, was introduced to Habitat homebuyer Elliot and got the chance to tour our Raleigh ReStore as well as Crosstowne, our most recent completed neighborhood.

In July 2019, TowneBank committed $1.9 million to help provide mortgages for 17 families in Wake County. We're so grateful for their commitment to building homes, communities and hope for families in our community.

Many thanks to Habitat Wake board member and TowneBank's Senior VP John Towles for his support as well as ABC11 WTVD for coming out to highlight this incredible partnership!

What a great way to finish 2019! Our good friends at A Place at the Table Raleigh invited us over for breakfast, and then they came over to our construction facility to build some walls with us. We are inspired by their work in the community and we're feeling renewed and ready for all next year has to offer. Huge thanks to Terry and Hank Snyder who made the day possible with their gift.

Your phones do not seem to be working. They don't ring when I call. Started yesterday evening.
We have been in our New Home in Crosstowne sine September 15, 2019. We love our house and about 4 days ago someone came to our new home and stole my children's brand new bikes that they got last year. One of the bikes belonged to my special needs child, a bike that we bought him for his birthday last year. Please be careful, we should have put our bikes in the storage house, instead, we left them outside behind the house. Be careful.
Un saludo fraterno amigos de Wake, desde Honduras un reconocimiento a su gran trabajo por los necesitados de vivienda en USA y Honduras.
