Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity Homeownership Program

The Cape Fear Habitat Homeownership Program serves low- to moderate-income families at 30-80% Area Median Income in New Hanover, Pender, and Duplin Counties. Our unique, strengths-based model provides opportunities for affordable homeownership and is grounded in homeowner education and empowerment. Program participants invest 250-400 partnership hours in the process of purchasing their home, including financial literacy counseling, hands-on home repair classes, disaster-preparedness courses, estate planning, and building their homes and those of their neighbors. After completion, they purchase their homes with an affordable mortgage (<30% of income) and payments are recycled back into the program.

Population(s) Served

Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity's Repair Program was created in 2018 as a response to recovery efforts after Hurricane Florence; through those efforts, we discovered a need for a permanent program. Our Repair Program provides critical home repairs to families at 0-80% AMI whose living situations impact their health and well-being, the majority of whom are seniors, people who are disabled, and/or disaster-impacted families.
