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 helped build a home in the Neuse Crossing neighborhood for Patrick Loleka and Julie Vangu, who immigrated from the Republic of Congo. They are married and have three small children. Patrick works for Dudson and Julie works for The Umstead. They enjoy beach trips and spending time with extended family in the RDU area. They are very excited about becoming first-time homeowners and we have the privilege to make that dream a reality with Habitat for Humanity.
Asbury will provide monetary support as well as volunteer hours through Wake County Habitat for Humanity.

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.
