2023 Veterans Build

At Habitat, we are proud to partner with local families, who invest sweat equity for the opportunity to purchase their own home with a guaranteed affordable mortgage. We are incredibly pleased to partner with our upcoming Veterans Build family, Phillip Dorsey, Retired Army and father of two teenage sons and an adult daughter. He relocated from Washington, DC, to North Carolina fifteen years ago and currently works two jobs. He works full-time for Sandhills Community College and part-time at Enterprise Car Rental.

“I really appreciate the opportunity to work along with some amazing
people to help me and my kids on this next journey in helping us build our home.”
~Phillip Dorsey

We appreciate your interest in Sandhills Habitat Veterans Build. Through this initiative, you can help us provide a guaranteed affordable home to U.S. veteran, Phillip and his family in Moore County. The National Low Income Housing Coalition finds that 2.5 million veterans heading households are at least 55 years of age. Of those 2.5 million veterans, 24% have housing cost burdens. Unlike our older civilians, our older veterans are more likely to have a disability which may require home modifications, health and other supportive services as they age.

Meet our Habitat Veterans

The gratitude that we have for our active military members and veterans goes beyond words. Our country’s military service members have stepped forward to protect every one of us in times of need. At Habitat, we are also proud to celebrate veterans’ continued service who are building homes, working in the ReStore and improving our communities. As part of our program, we will be launching our “Veteran’s Build” in 2021 and offering home repair services in Richmond, Hoke, and Moore County.
