Mission Statement

Habitat of Durham transforms lives and communities by making homeownership possible in partnership with people who care.

Description

Thanks to the encouragement of Worth Lutz, a small group of clergy and laity met in the Spring of 1985 to discuss the development of a Habitat affiliate in Durham, and by the Fall, it was a reality. On October 24, 1985, Durham County Habitat for Humanity came into being, and on the Saturday before Christmas of 1987, the first Durham Habitat homeowners moved into their new home. Although it took over ten more years to begin work on the 50th home, it took only three years beyond that to begin the 100th. Habitat has broken ground on over 200 homes in Durham since 1985.
