Our Work

Durham Habitat builds new homes, rehabs existing homes and repairs older, owner-occupied homes that have fallen into a state of critical disrepair.  We work in partnership with homeowners-in-progress, volunteers and the community at large to achieve our mission of strengthening the community by providing low-income families with safe, decent and affordable housing.

Since 1985, Habitat for Humanity of Durham has helped more than 600 families achieve their housing goals by:
 
  • Building and selling more than 300 homes in Durham
  • Repairing more than 150 homes in Durham
  • Providing funding for more than 200 homes Internationally
