Highland's Habitat House

In keeping with our missional focus this year on housing, Highland will again be sponsoring the construction of a house through Habitat for Humanity of Wake County.  We expect to break ground in the February 2019 and complete the house in time for a family to move in for the next summer. Once again, we are calling on your hard work, dedication, and generosity to help provide a deserving family a home.

For those who may not be familiar, Habitat for Humanity is an ecumenical organization dedicated to partnering with families and communities to build and preserve safe and affordable homes; they are also dedicated to advocating for better housing legislation.  

If you have any questions or want to help with our Habitat project, contact Sarah Watson or Pat Cronin.
