Welcome to Habitat for Humanity of Halifax & Northampton Counties, North Carolina. We are a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a non-profit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold to those in need at no profit and with no interest charged.

Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and business donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor(sweat equity)into building their homes and the homes of others. Their monthly mortgage payments are used to pay off the construction loan, to pay for the homeowner's insurance and taxes, and then to build more Habitat for Humanity homes.

Since our chartering as a Habitat affiliate in 1986, we have completed 23 homes. If this important work is to continue, we need volunteers to help in all parts of our organization. You can email or call our office and leave your name and contact information. We will get back to you as soon as possible to discuss ways you can help. We welcome everyone who shares our passion for helping people realize their dream of owning a home. All people, regardless of race or religious affiliation, are encouraged to join us as volunteers and as possible applicants for a Habitat for Humanity home.
