Area churches partner with Habitat Wake to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

January 16, 2024

At Habitat Wake, Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a day on, rather than a day off. Several faith groups joined forces for the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. Together, they built and raised walls for affordable homes in our community, embodying Dr. King's vision of the beloved community.

The event kicked off Habitat Wake’s annual Beloved Build, which for more than 10 years has brought faith groups together to put into practice Dr. King’s concept of the beloved community: an integrated, just society that is the ideal expression of the Christian faith.

Thank you to the four faith coalitions who spent this Day of Service working to build homes, communities and hope: the Downtown Coalition, the Baptist Coalition, the Orthodox Coalition and the Spring Apostles Coalition.
