Congratulations to Habitat for Humanity of Orange County for the strong finish to the $7.5M Weavers Grove campaign goal, raising more than $8M! The new development in Chapel Hill is one of few in the nation setting a precedent for mixed-income living, with 102 Habitat homes and 136 market-rate homes.
City, county, and state officials were in attendance at the campaign celebration in addition to staff, donors, and volunteers. We are proud to have served as campaign and executive search counsel as well as provided interim support. Beautiful new homes, town homes, and condos in an innovative mixed income community are an innovative answer to the affordable housing crisis in Orange County. The committed leadership of the capital campaign co-chairs and committee and the dedication of the Habitat staff provided an opportunity for individuals, faith groups, foundations, and corporations to respond with great generosity to this historic campaign.
