Faith Involvement

All Are Welcome

Habitat for Humanity of Durham is a nonprofit, radically 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 Durham Habitat eradicate substandard housing!

The need is great with 35,000 Durham neighbors living in substandard housing. Become a Faith In Action partner by committing to donate at least $2,500 annually to help further the mission of Durham Habitat. Donations provide the start-up capital needed to acquire land, purchase construction materials and labor, and continue Habitat programs. For help fundraising your $2,500 commitment, please contact Rebecca Leonard at (919) 682-0516

Faith In Action partners are invited to regular volunteer opportunities, including quarterly Interfaith Build days. To sign up for an upcoming Interfaith Build day please contact Rebecca Leonard at (919) 682-0516

Habitat Success Stories

Lal is a Burmese refugee who came to Durham after stops in Egypt and Thailand. Lal partnered with Habitat and the Durham Literacy Center to renovate a historic home in East Durham. “There is no more fear,” Lal said. “We won’t have to move again because the home belongs to us.”
