Thanks to your help, we met our goal! For everyone who made a recent donation, big or small, we are so grateful. Because of you, we have not only met but exceeded our goal for the Stewards Fund match challenge. Thank you!
You helped us raise almost $300,000 to serve local families in need. These gifts will help provide decent housing for our neighbors.
The challenge may be over, but we still need your help! Families struggle to find safe, affordable housing all year round. Start the new year off right with a gift to Habitat!
Fred and Sylvia Black have made countless contributions to the Triangle community and beyond. In honor of their upcoming 70th birthdays and 50th wedding anniversary, their friends and family are honoring them by building a house in partnership with a hardworking local family. They are raising $78,000 for this project, the material cost of a Habitat home. This is also the 250th house built by Habitat in Orange County!
You can help build the house by sending a donation and volunteering!
November 2 was a beautiful fall day for the 16th Annual House Party in Chapel Hill. Over 150 people joined us to celebrate the work of Habitat for Humanity in Orange County.
We are grateful to Jeremy Salemson for hosting the event at his house. And to Kelli Council-Lattie for speaking about how becoming a Habitat homeowner has brought peace and stability to her family.
Take a look at our best photos.
Thank you to all of our house sponsors for the fall of 2014, who are working in partnership with the Contreras, Ibnjeddi, Ledesma, McBroom, Smith, 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.
