WAKE FOREST — Habitat for Humanity of Wake County has gained the support and partnership of The Body Shop for a future home build that will take place in Wake Forest.
The Body Shop, whose Americas headquarters is located in Wake Forest, has pledged a sponsorship towards one of several new Habitat for Humanity homes to be constructed in 2014 in the Northeast End of Wake Forest.
Habitat Wake has recently completed 12 exterior repair projects close to downtown Wake Forest and will continue to work in this community to provide other revitalization programs in the future.
Seven additional exterior repair projects are slated for early 2014. These repairs are done over one to two days with the help of volunteers through Habitat’s A Brush With Kindness program.
Habitat Wake will also build five new homes, which will be sold with a nointerest mortgage to qualifying family partners. The new construction homes to be built will be approximately 1,200 square feet and will blend architecturally with the existing homes in the neighborhood.
Additional Wake Forest and Trianglewide sponsors and volunteers are needed to help Habitat Wake achieve its initiatives in this multiproject effort to positively impact Wake Forest and make affordable housing possible for hardworking families.
Habitat Wake is actively seeking additional sponsors, volunteers, and partner families within Wake Forest.
Habitat Wake builds safe, affordable houses for qualified homebuyers regardless of race, religion, or background.
Each Habitat home is built in partnership with homeowner families, sponsors, and volunteers. Habitat houses are are sold for no profit to the partner family through an affordable 20year 0-percent interest mortgage.
Habitat Wake will build 32 homes in Wake County this year. For each home built in Wake County, a home is also built in Honduras.
Another 35 local families will receive assistance through Habitat Wake’s A Brush With Kindness exterior repair program.
Financial support is provided by corporate, faith, civic, and individual sponsors, the Habitat Wake ReStores, the DeConstruction program, and mortgages paid by Habitat homeowners.
