Spring Break with Durham Habitat

Posted |
Durham Habitat will be hosting students from six different schools during their respective spring breaks to help build or rehabilitate homes for families in need of affordable housing. The nearly 130 students visiting Durham are participating in Habitat for Humanity’s national alternative break program, Collegiate Challenge.

The schools include:

For the past 25 years, more than 229,000 students have spent their school breaks volunteering across the country through Habitat for Humanity’s Collegiate Challenge program, donating more than $23 million to Habitat affiliates. 

The Collegiate Challenge program is one of the many programs Habitat has to engage youth ages 5 to 25 in Habitat’s work. In addition to the ongoing support State Farm® offices provide to local Habitat affiliates across the United States, State Farm has served as the national corporate sponsor of Habitat for Humanity’s youth programs since 2007.

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.”
