Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Founded in Americus, Georgia, USA, in 1976, Habitat for Humanity International operates around the globe and has helped build, renovate and repair more than 600,000 decent, affordable houses sheltering more than 3 million people worldwide. Habitat’s concept of “partnership housing” centers on those in need of adequate shelter working side-by-side with volunteers to build simple, decent houses.
Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity was established in 1987 and has served more than 175 hard-working families through the construction and rehabilitation of homes throughout New Hanover and Pender counties. Completed in 2013, The Cottages at Cornerstone and Gideon Pointe are Cape Fear Habitat’s subdivisions in Wilmington, NC, and they are home to 40 Habitat families.
All Are Welcome
Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
