Duke Habitat is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International and a partner of Habitat for Humanity of Durham. The student chapter works to fund and build safe, decent, affordable homes in the Durham community, which are then sold to hardworking and deserving low-income families. By fundraising, building, educating and advocating, Duke Habitat addresses the local lack of affordable housing and improves upon Duke-Durham relations.
DGIN funding helps Duke Habitat for Humanity purchase supplies for the construction of one Duke Habitat house per academic year. The Habitat build is usually a fall semester project, and dozens of Duke students and employees volunteer.
