Our annual report is now available online! Click here to see the impact that your donations and your volunteer hours had in our community.
Because of you, 10 hardworking families had the chance to build and purchase a home this year. Your support builds more than new homes, though.
Together, we build a place where every child has the chance of a better tomorrow. Together, we build neighborhoods where families feel invested in their communities. Together, we build brighter futures for local families.
This was a year of celebrating all that we have built together. 2014 marked the 30th anniversary of Habitat in Orange County. The final of 50 energy-efficient homes in the Phoenix Place neighborhood was completed. The home repair program was expanded, allowing twice the number of families to be served. Volunteers raised walls on our 250th home in Tinnin Woods, Habitat's newest neighborhood in Efland. In partnership with the Affordable Housing Coalition, a new and renewable source of funding was secured for affordable housing in Chapel Hill.
Without you, none of this would be possible.
On February 20th, we celebrated the home dedication of Angela and Paul Thieman.
We were grateful to be able to gather in the Thieman's warm home during the cold and snowy weather. Angela even cooked Spanish paella to celebrate!

Thanks to your help, we met our goal! For everyone who made a recent donation, big or small, we are so grateful. Because of you, we have not only met but exceeded our goal for the Stewards Fund match challenge. Thank you!
You helped us raise almost $300,000 to serve local families in need. These gifts will help provide decent housing for our neighbors.
The challenge may be over, but we still need your help! Families struggle to find safe, affordable housing all year round. Make your impact with a gift to Habitat today!
Fred and Sylvia Black 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 is also the 250th house built by Habitat in Orange County!
You can help build the house by sending a donation and volunteering!
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. Community groups and volunteers will also work this fall to help families repair their homes through the A Brush with Kindness program.
