About this organization






Habitat Wake brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.


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 nearly 2,000 families with new construction, home preservation and global building. 1 in 4 families in Wake and Johnston counties lacks access to affordable housing, which often means choosing between paying for housing and paying for other necessities like food, healthcare and education. Habitat Wake helps families build and purchase safe, affordable homes. Program participants pay an affordable monthly mortgage, complete sweat equity hours and take financial education courses.  Habitat Wake also repairs homes and supports global Habitat building in Honduras, Cambodia and Malawi. The need for affordable housing is tremendous, but with the support of thousands of volunteers and donors each year, we can give more families the chance to build a better life.
