Since 1985, Habitat Wake has partnered with more than 600 families, donors and volunteers to build safe, affordable, energy-efficient homes in all parts of Wake County. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man,
woman, and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.
The eight Habitat for Humanity ReStores around the triangle are a part of Wake Habitat also.
The Restores sell new and used furniture, building supplies, appliances and household goods at discounted prices. They seek to be good stewards of the environment by diverting more than 5,000 tons of usable items from landfills every year.
Habitat Wake also works raise awareness of the growing affordable housing issues in and around the Triangle.
