Thank you again for your support of Habitat for Humanity of Duplin County! We truly appreciate it.
Last year, Habitat for Humanity of North Carolina and the North Carolina State Employees Credit Union Foundation, sponsored an initiative that made substantial resources available to stimulate habitat for humanity efforts in all 100 counties of North Carolina. These funds will enable us to proceed with our next home now being constructed in Beulaville. The Ground Breaking Ceremony was held on January 7, 2016.
We have created a very productive partnership with the professional staff of the Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity affiliate in Wilmington. They are helping with family training and providing construction advice and supervision as needed.
Habitat for Humanity International Mission Statement and Principles
A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ.
We undertake our work to demonstrate the love and teachings of Jesus, acting in all ways in accord with the belief that God's love and grace abound for all, and that we must be "hands and feet" of that love and grace in our world. We believe that, through faith, the miniscule can be multiplied to accomplish the magnificent, and that, in faith, respectful relationships can grow among all people.
Focus on shelter.
We have chosen, as our means of manifesting God's love, to create opportunities for all people to live in decent, durable shelter. We put faith into action by helping to build, renovate or preserve homes, and by partnering with others to accelerate and broaden access to affordable housing as a foundation for breaking the cycle of poverty.
Advocate for affordable housing.
In response to the prophet Micah's call to do justice, to love mercy and to walk humbly with God, we promote decent, affordable housing for all, and we support the global community's commitment to housing as a basic human right. We will advocate for just and fair housing policy to eliminate the constraints that contribute to poverty housing. And, in all of our work, we will seek to put shelter on hearts and minds in such powerful ways that poverty housing becomes socially, politically and religiously unacceptable.
Promote dignity and hope.
We believe that no one lives in dignity until everyone can live in dignity. We believe that every person has something to contribute and something to gain from creating communities in which all people have decent, affordable places to live. We believe that dignity and hope are best achieved through equitable, accountable partnerships.
Support sustainable and transformational development.
We view our work as successful when it transforms lives and promotes positive and lasting social, economic and spiritual change within a community; when it is based on mutual trust and fully shared accomplishment; and when it demonstrates responsible stewardship of all resources entrusted to us.
Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations will not proselytize. Nor will HFH work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with HFH. This means that HFH will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must adhere to or convert to a particular faith or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
HFH of Duplin County is the locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. Habitat is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian organization which works in partnership with people in need to build decent, affordable housing.
Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat homes. Partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and homes of others. Partner families are selected based on their need, their ability to partner, and their ability to pay the mortgage on the home.
With lot clearing in progress in Beulaville, we are lining up volunteers to help when we begin the home construction in March. NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY. You can have the satisfaction in helping in any or all aspects of building the home. We will be building several days a week as work and weather permits, including Saturdays.
If you can devote some time to help, please do two things:
Send an email to our Volunteer Coordinator Michael Buro at email@example.com to be added to our notification list for when new work days are added to VolunteerSpot.
Review the options listed and chose the spots you like
Sign up. Your email will NOT be shared with anyone.
Groups: We welcome help from organized groups such as Churches, employee groups, benevolent organizations, etc. If your group would like to participate on a particular day, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator.
Habitat for Humanity is a qualified 501.c.3 organization, and all donations can receive a donation receipt.
With a home presently under construction, we will gladly accept donations of construction materials, tools and professional services. Please contact the Construction Coordinator listed below in CONTACTS.
If your group or business would like to provide lunch or refreshments for volunteers on a workday, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator for further details.
