The Dixon Home

The home is being built in partnership with the Durham Community. It has already seen a large collection of different volunteer groups come out to help in construction including Duke, EPA, the Durham government and many more. We are so excited to have the Durham community coming together to help us build this home!

Habitat Success Stories

Pearlie's home was so damaged that neighbors thought it was abandoned. Habitat partnered with the City of Durham to replace Pearlie's roof, a damaged wall, and exterior siding. Pearlie said, "It lifts my spirits. Habitat volunteers are beautiful people."
