Faith Involvement

All Are Welcome

Habitat for Humanity of Durham is a nonprofit, all-inclusive, faith-based housing ministry. Founded on Christian ideals in 1985, Durham Habitat partners with those who share our values of love, respect, compassion and justice for all. We welcome those of any faith - or no faith - to join us building homes, home and community in Durham.

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 Roxanne

Faith in Action partners are provided regular volunteer opportunities based on the needs of their communities.
