Happy Hispanic Heritage Month!

Habitat Wake is grateful for the contributions great, small and everything in between from this incredible community across the globe. 

Habitat Wake celebrates Hispanic and Latino people, cultures and nations. We are privileged to have had the opportunity to host Fiesta Builds over the years, spearheaded by our Faith Relations Team, that engages a variety of advocates.  

Check out this blog from Fiesta Build 2019! 

Hispanic-identifying people make up 10.4% of the population in Wake County and 13.6% in Johnston County, according to census data. As of 2019, 50% of Hispanic renter households are cost burdened. It is crucial to partner with families and organizations to help these communities thrive. View our policy priorities and sign up to take action! 

In addition to working with local Hispanic and Latino communities, we tithe to three sister Habitats internationally, including Honduras where we’ve had a longstanding partnership. Learn more about our work in Honduras.
