Habitat for Humanity of Durham


Durham Habitat builds new homes, rehabs existing homes and repairs older, owner-occupied homes that have fallen into a state of critical disrepair.  They work in partnership with homeowners-in-progress, volunteers and the community at large to achieve their mission of strengthening the community by providing low-income families with safe, decent and affordable housing.

Building Blocks

Durham Habitat is transforming a city block, and with it, the futures of hard-working Durham families.

We are building Plum Street and Morning Glory Avenue into a community of 21 affordable homes, connecting neighbors in a way Durham Habitat never has.

We’re building an equitable vision for Durham where all families can access the improved health, education, and career outcomes that are the benefits of owning a home.

We’re building alongside Durham neighbors as they achieve the dream of homeownership, forever altering the trajectory of future generations. We’ll watch in awe as the children in Habitat homes reach even greater heights.

We’re Building Blocks this spring. Join us as we transform Durham together. We can’t do it alone.
