Advocate for affordable housing in Wake County

Habitat Wake has partnered with more than 1,000 families since 1985 to build homes, yet more than 120,000 Wake County families are cost-burdened and cannot afford the high cost of a safe, affordable home. A cost-burdened family that spends more than 30 percent of their income toward housing may have difficulty affording other necessities such as food, transportation, education, and healthcare. In response to the prophet Micah's call to do justice, to love mercy and to walk humbly with God, we promote safe, affordable housing for all.

To address the great need for affordable housing in our community, we’re raising our voices in addition to our hammers! We encourage you to join us as we build louder. Join the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #BuildLouder

Habitat Wake’s policy priorities to address the affordable housing need are:

  • Increased funding
  • Robust public transit options with access to affordable housing
  • Land use and planning decisions
