The Backbone of Our Work

The past two years have been challenging to say the least. At the start of the pandemic, Habitat Charlotte Region continued to build and repair homes without the normal troop of volunteers on the construction site and in the ReStores. Without the many hands that help assemble the home from the frame to completely move-in ready, construction took longer and staff worked diligently to keep building for families in need of a safe and affordable home.

Volunteers are the backbone of our work. They keep our engine running and our costs low so we can make sure homes remain affordable for our partner families. That’s why Habitat Charlotte Region has been so excited to have volunteers on site and in our ReStores again; working safely alongside one another to make an impact in our community.

New Year, New Homes on the Horizon

Habitat Charlotte Region has several exciting new projects on the horizon to help an even greater number of families in the upcoming year.

Home construction starts in mid-2022 on The Meadows at Plato Price, an exciting new 39-home West Charlotte neighborhood that will be built on the 9-acre tract of land donated by the City of Charlotte. And we’ll either complete or start 21 new townhome units, one of which you might remember Amber and Kameron moving into on E. Mills Ave in Mooresville.

How Can You Help?

You don’t have to be an expert to help build homes! Volunteerism at Habitat Charlotte Region comes in many different shapes, sizes and skill levels with staff to guide you through each and every task. Whether it’s grabbing a hammer to help build a home for one of our partner families, or sorting furniture and other donated items at one of the six local ReStores, each and every volunteer is critically important to the organization’s mission and the community.
