All great things at Habitat start with partnership. Our partners in this special build include Pinckney Academy , Sandhills Community College and the Town of Carthage . Last month, council members voted enthusiastically to donate a piece of property to this project to provide a nearby location for the build. Moore County Schools and Sandhills are joining forces to develop a certification tailored to this project with opportunities for other community colleges to use in North Carolina in the future. We cannot say enough about the staff leaders at Moore County Schools and Pinckney – their passion for their students is inspiring, and we are eager to build with all of them!
Most students at the school have been unsuccessful in traditional high schools and classrooms. There are many reasons behind their struggles, but like everyone, they have a desire to prove they can contribute to their community. Through the Pinckney Build, the students will learn to build a home together, utilizing a curriculum designed to teach construction basics and provide hands-on learning throughout the year. Upon completion, the home will be sold to a Habitat family upon completion with a guaranteed affordable mortgage like all other Habitat homes.
In Colorado, the alternative schools students, who build a Habitat home, enjoyed meeting business and community leaders, showing off their new skills and learning about local employment opportunities. Many of the students ultimately received job offers and 100% of the students graduated with their high school diploma as well as 27 credits toward a degree at their community college. These were students who previously carried an average .8 GPA and 37% school attendance rate. We believe every Habitat build can transform both the future homeowner as well as the volunteers, but the Pinckney Construction Pathways Project may take that transformation to an entirely new level.

Longtime Habitat volunteer, Bill Montgomery , is chairing a committee of volunteers to serve as ambassadors for this build. We are seeking additional members who can encourage local businesses, churches and individuals to join in on the work alongside the students.

If you would like to become part of this volunteer committee, please contact Amie at 910-295-1934 or afraley@sandhillshabitat.org .
Welcome Our Summer Interns
Volunteer turned Summer Intern! Ryan Clark is studying Construction Engineering at North Carolina State University and he has also been a volunteer on the build sites. Ryan is passionate about residential construction and quality products.
Please welcome Wesley Bergerson to our construction team! He is one of our summer interns and his extensive experience as a mentor and coach will be an excellent addition to the 2019 Youth Build.
2019 Youth Build
Funded by the Habitat Gala and Auction

 Habitat  kicked off the 2019 Youth Build and the third home on Alan Charles Way partnering with student volunteers of Moore County Schools and area youth clubs.

Building on a Habitat site is a safe and positive way to put your passion for helping others into action at a local level. For many, it is a first chance to understand the crisis of housing insecurity and the need for affordable housing even in a community as relatively wealthy as Moore County.

Whether a youth signs up to come for a single day, or decides to make Habitat a habit for the summer, he or she will make a real difference for a family. Please share your great young leaders with us, and help make this project a success! Learn More

Energy Smart Home Builder
We build. We build homes that change people's lives. We build skills so those people can maintain those homes and stay on track with their mortgage. We build connections with the community to help built the homes. But did you know that Habitat build homes that are 30% more energy efficient than the average house in North Carolina ? That’s right, the average home in NC has a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index rating of 100 and our Habitat homes are scoring an average of 70%, (the lower the better).

HERS rated energy efficient homes are the key to green living, providing better home comfort, lower costs and higher resale values. Not only does energy efficiency help the environment, but it allows our homeowners to budget their finances. Receiving a utility bill that is twice what you expected is unsettling for anyone but can be devastating for people on a fixed income. Energy efficient HERS rated homes are gaining traction across the country not only because of the financial savings they offer but also because of their environmentally friendly features.
