Are you passionate about sustainably transforming communities? Join Habitat for Humanity of Wake County as we build homes, communities and hope in Wake and Johnston counties.

About Habitat Wake
There is a tremendous need for affordable housing in our community. One in four families in our community is cost-burdened, meaning they pay too much of their income toward housing at the expense of other necessities like groceries, healthcare and education.
To help meet this need, Habitat Wake provides homeownership opportunities for families making less than 80% AMI and preserves existing affordable homes. We also advocate for policy change that will increase access to housing for everyone.
Since 1985, Habitat Wake has built more than 850 safe, affordable, energy-efficient homes in all parts of Wake and Johnston counties. We've served and served nearly 2,000 families with new construction, home preservation and global building.
We are a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization and welcome people of all races, religions and nationalities to partner in our mission. We are looking for creative, energetic and mission-oriented individuals to help us extend our reach and serve more people through new construction, home preservation and advocacy. Come build with us!
Please note, Habitat Wake requires staff, volunteers and contractors to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
