Faith Involvement

All Are Welcome

Habitat for Humanity of Durham is a nonprofit, all-inclusive, faith-based housing ministry. We have a policy of building with people in need regardless of race or religion. We welcome volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds. Learn more about the scriptural foundations of our work in Durham and Honduras. Learn about how the seeds of Habitat for Humanity were planted by checking out the History of Habitat and by watching the Briars in the Cotton Patch.

Faith In Action

Bible presentation

Habitat calls upon all Durham communities of faith to help with the mission of eradicating substandard housing and reducing poverty in our community!

The need is great with 35,000 Durham neighbors living in substandard housing. Become a Faith In Action partner by committing to donate annually to help further the mission of Durham Habitat and change the lives of your Durham neighbors. For help fundraising, please contact Rebecca Barnes at (919) 682-0516

Faith in Action partners are provided regular volunteer opportunities based on the needs of their communities. The Faith in Action campaign sponsors 1 to 2 home builds annually for those interested in more substantial engagement. Also, Habitat of Durham is hosting quarterly Interfaith Build days where those from all faiths are invited to build together. To sign up for an upcoming Interfaith Build day please contact Rebecca Barnes at (919) 682-0516
