Margare Allen and her great-grandson Tavion recently bought and moved into their Habitat home in Durham. Tavion, 6, proudly showed his friend Tavner Little his home, saying, "I love my new bedroom. It's got a blue wall and my windows open". Margare is very glad that Tavion has a quiet, safe place to do his homework.

Habitat Success Stories

Anita and her sister thought they were experiencing night sweats but realized that it was raining inside their home. Habitat partnered with Blue Cross Blue Shield to replace their roof. “I used to go to bed every night and the rain would be all over my face but not anymore. Thank you.”
