Did you know that when you shop for the holidays at, AmazonSmile donates to Wilkes Habitat for Humanity?

Wilkes Habitat for Humanity and Upper Yadkin Valley Habitat for Humanity are both currently accepting applications to join our local affordable homebuying program. The open application period runs from October 1, 2019 – October 31, 2019.

Qualifying applicants must have a need for housing, the ability to pay for housing, and the willingness to partner with Habitat. Applicants selected to join our program must then complete a combination of volunteer hours called “sweat equity” and a robust homebuyer education program. When the program is successfully completed, applicants earn the opportunity to purchase the Habitat home they helped build through a 0% interest mortgage.

During this application period, we are seeking applicants who want to live either in the Town of Wilkesboro (Wilkes HFH) or the Town of Jonesville (Upper Yadkin Valley HFH).

Applications may be picked up in person Wednesday-Friday from 9:30am-5:30pm, and Saturday 9:30am-2:00pm at the Habitat ReStores located at:

  • 102 East Market Street, Elkin, NC
  • 320 Cothren Street, Wilkesboro, NC
