Home for the Holidays

The holidays bring memories of joy. The joy of friends, neighbors, family, food, and most of all, home. Tasha’s daughter Summer moved into her Durham Habitat home this past June. This holiday season, she’ll start making her own joyful memories.

This fall, we had a game-changing moment at Durham Habitat. Through a partnership with the City of Durham and the Durham Housing Authority, we are now the proud new owners of 37 lots for affordable housing in East Durham. What had previously been a bottleneck – a lack of building lots – is now an incredible opportunity.

This means that we need you! To volunteer, to contribute, to advocate, to sponsor a home. We have an unprecedented opportunity to change the landscape of housing in Durham and impact the lives of the many children who are housing insecure this holiday season – but with your help, might not be next year. 

Thank you for helping us build bright futures for our children. Thank you for supporting Durham Habitat

With peace and blessings,

Durham Habitat
