As we celebrate our 32nd year, Habitat Greensboro has placed over 490 families into affordable homes in our community and 450 internationally, building homes, community and hope. We are awed by every homeowner, the challenges they have overcome, and their resolve to have a safe place to raise their children.
This past year brought amazing accomplishments for Habitat Greensboro outlined in this report. We went from highs to lows as we celebrated the opening of the Housing Hub with Governor Roy Cooper and then a month later devastated by an EF2 Tornado in East Greensboro. Those two events helped solidify our relationships with other housing nonprofits in our community and brought us all closer together as we worked to assist homeowners and displaced families impacted by the many storms of 2018.
