Habitat's 10th Annual Golf Tournament for Onslow County,
was held on May 8th. Due to the COVID-19 Stay at Home order, we extended the tournament time from one day to the first week in June. While we were a success in think outside the box and not canceling the tournament, we were less fortunate to gather enough players. Unfortunately many rainy days along with slow speed to open outings left us short this year.
We will be holding our tournament again next Spring. We would like to send a heartfelt Thank You to our Corporate Sponsors: Chick-Fil-A, Onslow Animal Hospital, and Remax, Hole Sponsors, and Teams who signed up for this event. The donations allowed Habitat to support our community.
The proceeds from this tournament go directly back into another home build or critical repair to assist the very low-income in the Onslow Community. If you missed out, you can still donate.
To date, this worthwhile event has raised, over $175,000 for Habitat Homes in Onslow County.
Sponsorships provide a way for businesses or individuals to identify themselves with Habitat for Humanity’s name and logo, to participate as active partners in our mission, and to be publicly recognized for their efforts.
THANK YOU FOR HELPING BUILD HABITAT HOMES!

Habitat Thanks the Catholic Daughters of the Americas
Crystal Coast Habitat for Humanity and partner Catholic Daughters of the Americas came together from all across eastern NC to help lend a hand for one Richland couple that lost everything due to Hurricane Florence. August 17, 2019, the Catholic Daughters devoted a day to help a family build strength, stability, and self-reliance by rehabbing a home. Fourteen daughters hung insulation for the Williams family. The project in keeping with the CDA motto "Unity and Charity", presented a check for $10,000 with the hopes of their national office matching the funds.
The family, living in Richlands, sustained major damage when their roof was compromised by Hurricane Florence. A disaster recovery group came through just after the storm and mucked their home down to the studs. Their electrical system was only partially working and the HVAC system was a total loss. The project got a jump start with a grant from the NC Community Foundation grant with funds earmarked for Onslow County disaster recovery. This has been an extremely difficult journey for the Williams family. The project end goal is to get this family back in their home by August 30th just shy of the first anniversary of Hurricane Florence.
National Night Out in Jacksonville
National Night Out is America's night out against crime was held on August 8! Thank you to our Volunteers that helped with this event. The community event is held annually on the first Tuesday of August at Riverwalk Crossing Park in downtown Jacksonville. The City of Jacksonville celebrated its 21st year of NNO, along with community partners, including Crystal Coast Habitat for Humanity. This exciting annual event celebrates our community and promotes crime prevention, vendors, music, demonstrations, food trucks, and finishes off with fireworks. See you next year!
Habitat thanks the National Charity League Volunteers for
their time and efforts to make the 41st annual Newport Pig Cookin Contest a success. These Mother and Daughter teams of NCL made hundreds of funnel cakes well past the closing of the festival. The line never stopped. Thank You! The money raised goes directly to our Crystal Coast for Humanity locations and in return used to build new homes for the very low income and help with the critical repairs due to Hurricane Florence.
For 41 years the Pig Cookin has grown into the Largest all Volunteer Non-Profit Pig Cookin in the USA. In 2019 we will have given over $1,000,000 back to different charities.
Habitat celebrates Valentines Day with Keys to a new Home
This Habitat home was built for Joy Mattocks and her family through a special State Employees Credit Union Foundation funding project, the SECU 100 County Challenge! They have pledged to fund the 0% mortgages for one Habitat Home in each of the 100 counties in North Carolina.
In total, they have pledged $10,000,000 towards affordable housing to low-income families in North Carolina.
Habitat helps to Build Homes, Hope and Lives for low-income families with a housing need. The selected families will partner in their build project, attend homeowner education classes, receive budget counseling, and complete 400 "sweat equity" hours on Habitat projects and building their home. In return, the families receive a 0% mortgage on the cost to build their home. This means that a family will enjoy a new home including taxes and insurance for about $500 per month.
AGING IN PLACE
A neighbor called into the corporate office asking if Crystal Coast Habitat could build an access ramp. He explained the husband was in rehabilitation when Hurricane Florence hit. The couple had several trees down in the front yard and could not get in or out of their property. A contractor came along stating he was an approved tree removal service. He accepted the $5,000 requested to remove the trees but did not complete the work. Baptist Men were in the neighborhood willing and able to remove the trees. The intended funds were for the labor of the access ramp upon the husband's soon to be a homecoming. A majority of the materials had already been purchased by the couple. Habitat for Humanity stepped in to build the much-needed access ramp. The couple is tickled with the results!
