Mission: Habitat for Humanity of Wake County was founded in 1985. We build homes for and with working poor families. We develop partnerships among businesses, civic groups, churches and other religious groups, and individuals to build these homes in Wake County. We work with volunteers as much as possible to decrease costs and further promote a sense of community.

Programs: Construction services - this program constructs safe, energy-efficient and affordable housing for sale to economically disadvantaged people.

restore and deconstruction programs - the restore sells donated and salvaged building materials to the general public at below-market prices, with the net proceeds supporting the organization's mission to build affordable homes. Deconstruction services are offered to the general public for a fee and the materials salvaged from these projects are sold at the restore. In addition to making home maintenance more affordable for the general public, the restore and deconstruction services keep usable materials out of local landfills.

Working with the staff, house leaders, and other volunteers with Habitat for Humanity of Wake County is a great way to get out in the local community and help another family try to make a better life for themselves. Blessed with the opportunity to live in a nation of such abundance, it's wonderful to be able to work along side others and offer a hand up to our neighbors in need. Special thanks to Shanna, Norma, Sam B., Will, and Nick J. for their efforts in furthering the mission of Habitat for Humanity within Wake County!
