Habitat for Humanity is an ecumenical housing ministry that seeks to put belief into action by working in partnership with our community to provide safe, affordable homes for qualified low-income families.
Habitat has shown that building homes does more than put a roof over someone’s head. In clean, decent, stable housing families can thrive. In addition to building homes, Habitat for Humanity builds a spirit of community and cooperation among the volunteers, supporters, and beneficiaries of the organization.
A Message from the ED:
It is getting to be that time of year again ~ Spring ~ and also Construction season. We are able to start construction on a home for Rosanna Trevino and her son Jaylen in the Clabber Creek subdivision in Fayetteville. Please check our volunteer opportunities by clicking the volunteer button on the Volunteer page of this site. I am sure that you will have a wonderful time volunteering on our construction site, no skills necessary. We will show you what to do. In addition to knowing that you are working alongside a future homeowner and helping her make her dream come true, you will make new friends and learn new skills. No better time of the year to begin construction, when all the plants are coming back to life. Come join us. It may change your life!

Faces of Habitat:
Rick Frye - ReStore Warehouse Supervisor
At the end of the day I can say that, I got something done and /or something unexpected happens, and it becomes very beneficial for everyone involved. ~ Rick Frye
The Habitat ReStore Warehouse Supervisor, Rick, was born in Oklahoma City. He moved to Fayetteville in 1985 with his mother, graduated from Fayetteville High School and considers this home. Music and writing are two of Rick’s interests outside of work. He discovered the Habitat ReStore while helping his mother. After seeing the store Rick began to volunteer and was quickly hired to work for the Habitat ReStore. He has been with Habitat for close to 4 ½ years now.
Rick has always had a passion for the mission of Habitat for Humanity. Rick states that in the ReStore customer service is a big part of everyone’s job. Working with customers, volunteers, and Habitat partner families keeps the job ever changing and interesting. Rick may spend his day picking up donations, working the sales floor in the store, or directing volunteers working on special projects. Rick tells us that, “It’s a challenge. There is always something different.” He is having a blast and in the end it is interesting.
When asked what he would want the community to know about the Habitat ReStore Rick tells us, “I know from personal experience you are going to be able to save a lot of money on home improvement projects. You are going to enrich yourself and everyone if you come down to the store and do the work yourself. While it can be intimidating, the fact is you can do it. When you do get done you will be able to save thousands of dollars. Even if you are new to it all, you can come in and start slowly. We can help you get to where you need to be.”
