Securing the Future

January 23, 2024

Last year, under the guidance of CEO Tiana Joyner and our Board of Directors, Durham Habitat took great strides towards ensuring a strong future by creating an endowment fund and releasing a new strategic plan. These will position us to best utilize your gifts to serve the needs of the community, both now and in the future.

A generous planned gift, in combination with the transformative MacKenzie Scott gift, enabled us to create an endowment fund, which is invested for the long-term benefit of our mission. The endowment provides a dependable source of funding and will help ensure Durham Habitat’s ability to expand access to affordable housing and serve local families for generations to come.

With input from a variety of partners, we have developed a new strategic plan that provides a clear framework for how we will advance our mission over the next three years. The plan’s goals are designed to meet the needs of the families we serve and create a sustainable future for Durham Habitat.

By building a resilient and inclusive organization, we’ll be positioned to rise to the challenges of providing affordable homeownership in an ever-changing environment. You can view the 2024-2026 Strategic Plan at
