About Habitat for Humanity of Wake County

Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. Our vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Since 1985, Habitat Wake has partnered with homebuyers, donors and volunteers to build more than 750 safe, affordable, energy-efficient homes in all parts of Wake and Johnston counties.

Our motivation

Motivated by the belief that each of us is called to "act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with our God," Habitat Wake seeks to be a partner and catalyst in building communities where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

Our method

When the community comes together to address the urgent need for adequate, affordable housing, we all become less vulnerable and more resilient. Habitat Wake practices a philosophy of "a hand up, not a handout" and builds on existing community assets: financial, physical, natural, human, social and spiritual.

Our impact

Habitat Wake believes that bringing people together is essential to building healthy communities. When we work together, statistics become faces with names, stereotypes are broken and everyone has the opportunity both to give and to receive.
