Wake County Habitat For Humanity
Yesterday, I had the privilege of attending the Blueprint Breakfast for Habitat for Humanity of Wake County. It was an honor to be surrounded by the 900+ people committed to solving the problem of affordable housing in Wake County. In our area, there are currently 91,000 families burdened by housing which means they spend more than 30% of their income on a place to live. As we continue to grow, the demand for homes goes up and the supply goes down so the cost rises. We will have to "deal" with this problem -whether it's by getting involved, paying hire taxes, or dealing with the downsides of a homeless population.
Habitat does amazing work! And it's not just asking for donations. Take a visit to their ReStore to find or donate furniture. Find out how they have partnered with mortgage companies to save home buyers money, or volunteer to help build a home. Together we can all make Wake County a great place to live.
