Habitat for Humanity 2015

The Raleigh office participated in Alfred Williams & Company’s first annual Operation Habitat for Humanity, and we had a great time, working together to help someone in our community build their dream home!

October 8, 2015

Habitat for Humanity of Wake County builds safe, affordable houses for qualified homebuyers regardless of race, religion or background. Each Habitat home is built in partnership with homeowner families, sponsors, and volunteers. Our houses are safe, decent, affordable homes which are sold for no profit to the partner family who repays an affordable mortgage. Homeowners attend a series of workshops on financial literacy and home maintenance so they are well prepared to be homeowners.

Changing a plot of dirt into a house is dramatic, but the real change is what happens when a family transitions out of poverty housing. At Habitat for Humanity, their vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Affordable homeownership makes new opportunities available to these families and their children, including savings, a sense of security, space to grow, and good neighbors.

Habitat Wake is an independent affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical housing ministry.
