Rebuilding Homes, Rebuilding Lives

  WARM NC's mission is to repair, rebuild, and make homes accessible; and to inspire service, generosity & hope. 

Serving low-income homeowners in Bladen, Brunswick, Columbus, Duplin, New Hanover, Onslow, and Pender Counties, many of whom are elderly, disabled, and/or veterans. WARM helps people age in place safely by preventing home accidents and illnesses - preserving their dignity and independence. 


Founded as Wilmington Area Rebuilding Ministry, WARM NC began in 1996 in response to hurricanes Bertha and Fran. Volunteers from across our region were organized by leaders of the Wilmington District of the United Methodist Church to repair the damaged homes of low-income and elderly residents. As they entered the homes, volunteers noticed that much of the damage predated the storms - they just did not have the resources to make costly repairs. So, while responding to a natural disaster, WARM NC volunteers discovered a social disaster: substandard housing.

Long after the TV crews and national relief agencies packed up, WARM NC has continued its mission to improve the living conditions of low-income homeowners, including many elderly and disabled. Since its inception, WARM has helped over 1,800 families in Southeastern North Carolina. WARM NC will keep going until every homeowner in our service area is able to live safely and independently in the home they worked so hard to pay for.
