Stewards Fund Challenge

Double your gift by December 31!

Make the most impact with your 2014 donation. When you make your gift before December 31, the Stewards Fund could match your donation dollar-for-dollar with a grant of $95,000 to Habitat.

Your donation will go twice as far—to reach even more families and kids. Right now, Habitat must turn away one out of every two qualified families because it lacks the funds to serve them.

Double your gift today. Help even more neighbors. Make twice the impact.

Click here to read more about a local family who now has a stable future thanks to the generosity of people like you.

Your gift will be doubled when: a) you make your first ever gift to Habitat, b) you give more in 2014 than you gave in 2013, or c) you made your last gift more than 18 months ago. Feel free to call Grace Johnston at (919) 932-7077 ext. 219 or email if you have questions.

Send a card, change a life

A gift in honor of your clients, colleagues, friends, or family is the best gift of the season. Your gift will make the dream of homeownership possible for a deserving family. A minimum contribution of $10 per card is appreciated.

House Party

November 2 was a beautiful fall day for the 16th Annual House Party in Chapel Hill. Over 150 people joined us to celebrate the work of Habitat for Humanity in Orange County.

We are grateful to Jeremy Salemson for hosting the event at his house. And to Kelli Council-Lattie for speaking about how becoming a Habitat homeowner has brought peace and stability to her family.

Take a look at our best photos.

Fred and Sylvia Black

Honor House Reveal

Fred and Sylvia Black are the embodiment of selflessness. They have made countless contributions to the Triangle community and beyond. In honor of their upcoming 70th birthdays and 50th wedding anniversary, their friends and family are honoring them by building a house in partnership with a hardworking local family. They are raising $78,000 for this project, the material cost of a Habitat home. This will also be the 250th house built by Habitat in Orange County!

Give to the project here!

Fall 2014 Partnerships

Thank you to all of our house sponsors for the fall of 2014, who are working in partnership with the Contreras, Ibnjeddi, Ledesma, McBroom, Smith, and Toe families.

Construction Update

New Home Construction

Six families are beginning construction on their new homes this fall in Orange County. Two homes are located in the Fairview neighborhood in Hillsborough. Four homes are located in Tinnin Woods, Habitat's affordable subdivision of 28 green-certified homes in Efland. In addition, Habitat plans to complete 15 exterior home repair projects through its A Brush with Kindness program during its fiscal year 2014-15.
