Habitat Wake seeks to increase access to housing that is affordable. Since 1985, we have partnered with over 800 families to build homes, but the need for affordable housing remains great.
In Wake and Johnston counties, one in four families are burdened by the cost of housing.
A family that spends more than 30 percent of their income toward housing is considered cost-burdened and may have difficulty affording other necessities such as food, transportation, education, and healthcare.
We are lifting our voices through the Cost of Home Campaign and local advocacy efforts to promote safe, affordable housing for all.
