Who We Are

Habitat for Humanity of Orange County brings together people and resources to build quality, affordable homes to people who need them.

Habitat welcomes all people- regardless of race, religion, ethnicity or any other difference- to build simple, decent, affordable houses to those who lack adequate shelter.

How We Work

Habitat for Humanity of Orange County is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International that works locally to select and support homeowners, organize volunteers, and coordinate house building.

Who We Serve  

 Homeowners are selected based on their need for housing, their ability to repay a mortgage and their willingness to partner with Habitat.


How It’s Possible

Habitat is able to make housing affordable to low-income families because:

  • Houses are sold through a non-profit mortgage
  • Individuals and groups provide vital financial support
  • Homeowners and volunteers build under trained supervision

Where We Build

Since its founding in 1976, Habitat for Humanity International has built more than 500,000 houses providing shelter for more than 6.8 million people in 90 countries.

Habitat for Humanity of Orange County has just completed its 30th year of building homes for over 250 families in Orange County, NC.
