At Cape Fear Community Land Trust, we envision A region filled with vibrant, holistic, and economically diverse communities – with no barriers to quality, affordable housing, so that all citizens have a choice of where to live, work, and play.

Our Mission

Sustaining vibrant, diverse communities by creating housing opportunities for working families.

One of the greatest threats to our community is the lack of affordable housing in the region for our working population.
