January 1 – March 30, 2020

Habitat Wake will be rolling out The Polar Bear Build this January 2020! This is the time of year when it’s hardest to get volunteers on site, which is why we need your help.

Come out to volunteer and help us keep our builds hot through the chilly winter months — plus if you build three times, you’ll receive a FREE Polar Bear Build long-sleeve tee!

Following our faith’s calling, our mission is to ensure that everyone has a safe, affordable place to live. Your congregation is invited to build such a world. As FaithBuilders, congregations work to raise the funds and recruit the volunteers to build with future Habitat homeowners. After the walls are raised and the home is dedicated, you will realize that you were not only building a home but creating sacred community. FaithBuilders are also invited to advocate for affordable housing, plan global village trips, deploy their youth in local summer builds, and participate in home preservation projects. Find out about upcoming FaithBuilder activities, register for your congregation’s work days, see build photos and post your photos.

To show the need for affordable housing in Wake and Johnston counties, we papered an entire room of a Habitat house with #CostofHome statement squares signed by hundreds of volunteers, community leaders and staff members. This Cost of Home installation was featured in our Crosstowne Fall Festival and helped demonstrate the community’s support for safe, affordable housing.

We had so much fun doing it that we put together a video to spread the word and get others involved:  Cost Of Home.
