Mother's Day cards are here!
Here's a lasting gift for Mom this Mother's Day—make a donation in her name to Habitat. You will help another mom to build and buy a safe a secure home for her family.
Make a gift by credit or debit card, or send us a check! Be sure to let us know how many cards you need. Or, include recipient contact info and we will send the card(s) on your behalf. Email Grace or call her at (919) 932-7077 ext. 219 with questions or to submit your list.
P.S. This is also a meaningful way to honor daughters, grandparents, teachers, and friends!
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!

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 spring of 2015, who are working in partnership with the Laws, Pherribo, Tapp, Urrutia/Hernandez, and Win/John families. Community groups and volunteers will also work this spring to help families repair their homes through the A Brush with Kindness program.

Five families are beginning construction on their new homes this spring in Orange County. All five 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.
