Wilkes Habitat for Humanity is holding our 5th Annual Big Cheese Competition, a friendly contest to find out who will be The Big Cheese in Wilkes County in 2018! These nine intrepid Habitat supporters have joined the competition, each agreeing to raise at least $500 for Wilkes Habitat for Humanity by May 15th, 2018. The person who raised the most funds during the competition will be crowned the 2018 Big Cheese in Wilkes County on Friday, May 18th at The Big Cheese Ball!

We’re Building!

The 2017-2018  application period for purchasing a new Habitat home is currently closed as we get ready to launch our next three homebuilding projects here in Wilkesboro in 2018.

In partnership with the State Employees Credit Union Foundation, we’re launching the first Habitat project in Alleghany County’s history this fall as well.

Volunteers are a key part of our ministry, making our homes more affordable and building a network of community support for each of our homebuyers and their families. We look forward to working with everyone to make these 4 homes come to life over the next several months. You can help build self-reliance through affordable shelter.

The application period for the 2018-2019 homebuilding cycle will open in March of 2018. Stay tuned!
