Fred and Sylvia Black are the embodiment of selflessness. They have made countless contributions to the Triangle community and beyond. In honor of their upcoming 70th birthdays and 50th wedding anniversary, we are honoring them by building a house in partnership with a hardworking local family. We are raising $78,000 for this project, the material cost of a Habitat home. This will also be the 250th house built by Habitat in Orange County!
Give to the project here!
Thank you to all of our house sponsors for the fall of 2014, who are working in partnership with the Ibnjeddi, McBroom, Smith, Contreas, Torres, Ledesma, Ramos, and Toe families. Community groups and volunteers will also work this fall to help families repair their homes through the A Brush with Kindness program.

Four families are completing construction on their new homes this summer in Chapel Hill. These homes are located in Phoenix Place, Habitat's affordable subdivision of 50 green-certified homes within the Rogers Road community. The neighborhood plan was developed with community input and includes a garden, green spaces, picnic shelter, and playground. In addition, Habitat plans to complete 15 exterior home repair projects through its A Brush with Kindness program during its fiscal year 2014-15.
