Habitat Cabarrus has begun building its 150th home, which also happens to be the Collegiate Challenge build, fully sponsored by Publix Supermarkets Charities. At Habitat Cabarrus, Collegiate Challenge is an alternative Spring Break program for students. Students form a team, select a Habitat for Humanity affiliate, and work to improve affordable housing solutions for an entire week.
Welcome to all of our participating students this year!  Waynesburg University is a private, Christian university located in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania. This is their 7th year in a row volunteering with Habitat Cabarrus. Stockton University, a public university located in New Jersey, will be in town to work on the house the week of March 13th.

Collegiate Challenge would not be possible without the support of many local churches and business who provide a place for the students to sleep and food for lunch and dinner.  Click here to see a list of those supporters.

Thanks to all!
The party takes place at Great Wolf Lodge Charlotte/Concord, NC on Saturday, March 18th from 6-10pm. All proceeds from the event will benefit Habitat Cabarrus.

Askena Torres may be quiet, but no one should ever underestimate her, because Askena is a Doer!

Askena has a lot of extended family in Cabarrus County. In fact, in 2014 when she applied with Habitat Cabarrus, Askena lived with family. She shared an overcrowded 3-bedroom house with eight other people. Askena, her daughter, and her sister shared a single bedroom.

Askena originally heard about the Habitat homeownership program through a distant cousin. She had been looking for an apartment she could afford, but with a low income her rental situation was grim. Click below to learn more about Askena's journey.
The Title V Program provides older adults with an opportunity to foster individual economic self-sufficiency. Rather than sitting idly at home, adults who participate in this program have meaningful work to occupy their days. This program allowed us to connect with Robert Scales who has been making an impact working at the Habitat Cabarrus ReStore for almost three years.

The Habitat Cabarrus ReStore is proud to be a part of the Title V program!
