Sonoma Building Company is proud to be a strong supporter of Habitat for Humanity. Over the years, we have been privileged to work alongside them in a variety of home building events, creating homes for those in need in our community. Their extraordinary work impacts lives in the most tangible way as they live out their mission of building a “world where everyone has a decent place to live”.

Habitat for Humanity Projects:
Sonoma Building Company was honored to participate as a builder in Habitat for Humanity’s 2015 Builders Blitz! The Blitz was an exciting week in which 4 new homes were built from start to finish for deserving families in the triad. To highlight the revitalization of the area’s historic neighborhoods, Winston-Salem was selected as one of five sites in the nation to receive a visit from the Habitat International team as well as Steve Thomas, former host of the PBS series, This Old House.
What a fantastic week it was! From foundation to roofing, flooring to paint, and every detail in between, we witnessed the most incredible teamwork and the very best of the human spirit coming together for a great cause. While Builders Blitz events were taking place in cities all across the country that week, its impact was felt most tangibly for us here on one street in Winston-Salem where four families participated in the dedication of their new homes. But even as great an impact as this was, its measured effect went further, radiating through the hearts of every person involved in this project, including those of us at Sonoma.
Sonoma was honored to be a builder in the national 25th Anniversary Celebration of Habitat for Humanity’s Collegiate Challenge in 2014, an event that gathered students from across the country to the nationally selected site of Winston-Salem. During the one week event, Sonoma began building one of the four Challenge homes in the Glenn Oaks community with the help of these student volunteers. Foregoing warmer climates and hometowns, students from schools such as Vanderbilt University, University of Florida, St. John’s University, Villanova University and many more, chose the Challenge as an alternative way to spend their break, creating real impact for a community and gaining a sense of contributing to the greater good in return.
