The 2019 Small Business Build Week, May 7-11, is an opportunity for greater Lake Norman area businesses to work together, in partnership with Our Towns Habitat for Humanity and a local family in need of affordable housing. Your small business can help create a permanent solution to one family’s need for affordable housing by being a sponsor for this very special build.
You and your employees can engage with the Habitat mission in a meaningful way, as you volunteer on the build site, working side by side with a future Habitat homeowner. Habitat homeowners work to build a better future for their families, just like our small business leaders.
Each homeowner serves 400 “sweat equity” hours, volunteering on their own home, homes for other families, and in our Habitat ReStores. They also complete homeowner education classes to prepare them for the financial and maintenance responsibilities that accompany homeownership. When construction is complete, Habitat homeowners buy their home, with a mortgage that is affordable for them.
