ABC11: Habitat for Humanity of Durham dedicates first "Home for the Holidays" home

Posted |

Habitat for Humanity of Durham honored the Bostic Family and celebrated the "Home for the Holidays" collaboration for affordable housing with The Streets at Southpoint, Belk, and ABC11

"Home for the Holidays" is a collaboration with Habitat for Humanity of Durham, The Streets at Southpoint, Belk, ABC11, and Valdivia Construction to build affordable housing for Durham neighbors.  

In July, volunteers from the businesses framed the Bostics' home at The Streets at Southpoint and moved it to an East Durham location.  The new home was completed this month through volunteer labor and more than 300 hours of "sweat equity" perfomed by the Bostic Family.
