HFHAC has built 3 major subdivisions in Alamance County and is currently participating in completion of Apple Tree Village.
- Raven Creek was built on property generously donated by Glen Raven. This 26-house neighborhood was funded through grants from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta, the City of Burlington / Community Development Block Grant, Capital Bank, and more.
- Herman Blue Court was built on property on Ross Street graciously donated by the City of Burlington. The City of Burlington, Capital Bank, and many more donors funded this project. Named after longtime HFHAC volunteer, Herman Blue, this cul de sac is home to 14 families.
- Ben Court was built on property donated by the Hayden Harman Foundation. Located in Graham, this neighborhood has 17 families in residence as well as Harman Park. The NC Department of Commerce granted HFHAC $250,000 for neighborhood infrastructure. Harman Park is a public playground built in partnership with United Way, the City of Graham, the Graham Recreation and Parks Department, the New Leaf Society, and HFHAC.
- Apple Tree Village, where we are currently building, is a neighborhood on Apple Street in Burlington. Our participation in that neighborhood represents a unique partnership with the City of Burlington and Alamance County Community Services Agency (ACCSA). Under this agreement, ACCSA will develop 5 lots; Habitat will build on 6 lots; and the remaining lot will jointly be developed as a playground and community garden. One of our six houses has been completed, and another house is under construction. A third house will begin construction soon. Habitat homeowners living in Apple Tree Village will also be able to take advantage of the programs and services offered by ACCSA.
We anticipate some additional tracts of land being ready for development of new Habitat neighborhoods in 2016. One thing is certain: our source of applicants will continue as the Alamance County Consolidated Plan for Housing indicates there are about 6000 fewer houses available than are needed in our community.
