Habitat for Humanity – Apostles Build

Habitat for Humanity – Apostles Build

What is Apostles Build?

A coalition of 12 churches that join together to provide the financial support and labor to build a home for a deserving family each year.

This year, we are helping to build a home in the Neuse Crossing neighborhood for Sabrina McCoy. She is from Fairmont, NC and has lived in Wake County for 16 years. She has worked for the Wake County Public School System for 7 years as an Instructional Assistant in a kindergarten class. She has one son named Elijah who is 16 years old. Sabrina and her son like to play card and board games and they look forward to putting in sweat equity hours to build their own home. They also look forward to owning their own home to have greater permanence in their lives.

Asbury will provide monetary support as well as volunteer hours through Wake County Habitat for Humanity.

Mark your calendar and sign up early for these very important service dates.

About Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity of Wake County builds safe, affordable houses for qualified home buyers regardless of race, religion or background. Each Habitat home is built in partnership with homeowner families, sponsors, and volunteers. Our houses are safe, decent, affordable homes which are sold for no profit to the partner family who repays a 0% interest mortgage over 20 years. Homeowners attend a series of workshops on financial literacy and home maintenance so they are well prepared to be homeowners.
