Habitat for Humanity
Construction is completed on a second Habitat for Humanity
house sponsored by UNC Health Care in the past two years. The house
is owned by Danita Thomas with Pulmonary Diagnostics (pictured
above) and was constructed with the support of an army of UNC
Health Care employees.
The house is a part of Phoenix Place, a well-designed, affordable subdivision of 50 green-certified homes within the Rogers Road community in Chapel Hill. Phase 1 of the construction includes 17 houses, 14 of which are owned by UNC or UNC Health Care employees.
UNC Health Care' sponsorship of this home is a part of the UNC Build a Block project. The goal of this student-led initiative was to build 10 Habitat for Humanity houses for University and UNC Health Care employee families in the 10 months of the 2010-2011 academic school year.
More than 300 employees, their families and friends built a UNC Health Care sponsored Habitat home in 2010 for Felecia Weaver of the division of Plastic Surgery. Click here to view a video following the construction of Felecia’s house.
