TOGETHER, WE BUILD -- HOMES, COMMUNITIES, HOPE
Since 1985, Habitat Wake has brought people together to build homes, communities and hope. With volunteer labor and generous donations from the community, Habitat Wake builds and preserves homes with families living on modest incomes. in 2015, our 30th year, Habitat Wake celebrated serving its 1,000th family and building its 500th home.
EMPOWER FAMILIES TO THRIVE
Habitat homebuyers are purchasing more than just a home. They’re buying a place where children are nurtured, dreams can grow, memories are made, and families thrive. Habitat Wake empowers families to make homeownership a reality by providing not a gift, but an opportunity. Families invest 250 “sweat equity” hours into the construction of their homes and the homes of their neighbors, complete financial and homeownership training classes, make a reasonable down payment, and pay an affordable mortgage that is no more than 30 percent of their income.
PUT YOUR VALUES INTO ACTION
Habitat Wake volunteers give more than than just their time. They work hand-in-hand with families, neighbors, sponsors and colleagues to build community. They are putting their values into action, and working toward a place where everyone has a decent place to live. In addition to building, volunteers help with home preservation projects and special events, volunteer in the office or ReStore, and serve on Habitat committees. Volunteering with Habitat is a fun, hands-on way to build the framework for lives more fulfilled in Wake County.
"Legislation and regulation are key pieces of the affordable housing puzzle. It's a dynamic environment that is ever changing and at Habitat Wake we take great comfort in knowing that we have a team of professionals monitoring the landscape and advising us on how our advocacy efforts can make the most impact," said Kevin Campbell, Habitat Wake President and CEO.
