Habitat Builds

Habitat for Humanity of Forsyth County works with a wide variety of businesses and organizations to coordinate specially-themed houses which involve multiple sponsors from specific businesses, faith groups, and organizations. These projects provide unique opportunities for networking and relationship-building among like-minded organizations or groups. Some of these projects take place annually or on a biannual basis.
Faith Build
Habitat Faith Builds bring together individuals from different backgrounds and faiths to work together with a common goal of providing a low-income family with the life-changing opportunity to purchase and own a safe, decent, and affordable home. These builds continue to be an interracial and interdenominational collaboration. The positive interaction among members from various walks of life who come together to build the house will encourage mutual trust and inspire hope in our community – while helping a family move out of substandard housing and into a safe and sustainable home.

The 2016 Unity Build was the sixth such house to be built since 2000. Since 1985, various congregations have sponsored 69 Habitat faith-related builds around Winston-Salem.

With your help, we all can put our faith in action to help a low-income family.

You can help by: 1) getting your congregation involved; 2) donating and/or helping us to raise the funds needed to complete the house build; and/or 3) volunteering your time to help build the house.

  • DONATE: To make a donation to the Unity Build you can donate online HERE or send a check to our office at 1023 W. 14th St., Winston-Salem, NC 27105.
  • VOLUNTEER: Sign up to volunteer HERE. No previous building experience necessary!

Healing Build
A Healing Build gives bereaved community members an opportunity to honor the loss of loved ones, support one another, and gain a sense of closure – all while constructing a safe and affordable home for a Habitat family. Hearts are healed through uplifting others.

While community members are painting walls and landscaping yards, they are encouraged to meet others who have experience the death of a loved one; grief shared is often grief divided. This partnership is tangible and uplifting and active and – above all – hopeful. It’s a bold demonstration of “hope for the future” for all involved.

For questions or more information, please contact Geri Wright at 336.306.8254 or email geri.wright@habtiatforsyth.org.
