Highland's Habitat House

Highland will again be sponsoring the construction of a house through Habitat for Humanity of Wake County.  We hope to break ground in March 2022 and complete the house in time for a family to move in for the next summer. Once again, we are calling on your hard work, dedication, and generosity to help provide a deserving family a home.

For those who may not be familiar, Habitat for Humanity is an ecumenical organization dedicated to partnering with families and communities to build and preserve safe and affordable homes; they are also dedicated to advocating for better housing legislation.  

If you have any questions or want to help with our Habitat project, contact Highland Habitat coordinator Pat Cronin.

Raising Funds to Raise the Roof - "A Home for the Holidays"

Highland will partner with another ministry group to cover the building costs of the house. Our portion is $32,500, and we are grateful to already have collected $7,000 towards this effort. Can you help us raise the remaining $25,500?

Give to Habitat, Give a Gift to a Loved One

Highland is asking folks to buy a piece of our Habitat house in lieu of a gift to someone in their life. We have cards available for donors to send to their gift recipients letting them know that  a gift has been given in their name to help Highland build a Habitat House. Cards are available after Sunday services or in the church office. Additional arrangements can be coordinated with Highland's Habitat coordinator Pat Cronin. Your gift supports the entire house, but when making gifts, it's helpful to "shop" for particular pieces:
