Habitat for Humanity of Wake County
Habitat for Humanity of Wake County has since 1985 joined with individuals and local organizations to build simple, decent, affordable homes in partnership with families living at poverty income levels who cannot qualify for mortgages at market rates. Habitat for Humanity helps people build and buy their own homes. It works by creating opportunity, not dependency. We have teamed up with other area United Methodist Churches over the past several years to build a Habitat home in Wake County. If interested in participating in Habitat for Humanity, contact Steve McCulloch at email@example.com.
