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 more than 600 families, donors and volunteers to build safe, affordable, energy-efficient homes in all parts of Wake County.

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 you join the broad community in addressing the urgent need for adequate, affordable housing, we all become less vulnerable and more resilient. In bringing people together, 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

In seeking truly transformed communities, Habitat Wake views bringing people together as an essential process for building hope and belief that healthier communities are achievable and beneficial for all. When we work together, statistics become faces with names, stereotypes are broken, and everyone has the opportunity both to give and to receive.
