Thank you! Your generous gifts helped us to meet the $75,000 Stewards Fund Challenge. With gifts from the Challenge, we will double the number of families we impact by expanding our exterior home repair program.
In July, we repaired a home in the Northside community in partnership with the Town of Chapel Hill, the Marian Cheek Jackson Center, and UNC's Good Neighbor Initiative.
In August, your gifts will help fund a Summer Paint Blitz to beautify four homes on Rogers Road, near the 50-home community we are building at Phoenix Place.
We celebrated National Women Build Week, sponsored by Lowe's, on Saturday, May 4 in Chapel Hill with a build day, construction training, and picnic. Local women gathered for a half-day "learn + build" session, plus lunch with guest speaker Susan Gravely, CEO of VIETRI.

Four families are beginning construction on their new homes this fall 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 by June 30, 2014.
Volunteers from Walnut Grove United Methodist Church helped to repair and paint Glenda Wade's deck. Ms. Wade is a longtime resident of Cedar Grove and is so proud of her freshly painted home.

Earlier this year, the Board and staff of Habitat for Humanity of Orange County worked together to craft a vision statement for the organization that would inspire and guide us as we carry out our work in the decades to come. The vision we adopted is beautifully simple: Everyone in Orange County has a decent place to live. This vision encompasses building and selling new affordable homes, repairing existing homes through our exterior repair program, and contributing to the revitalization of neighborhoods. It also includes advocating for sustainable solutions to the housing crisis that shuts out so many who cannot afford to live in our community or forces them to live in unsafe, overcrowded, or substandard housing.
