The Carter Work Project is returning to Charlotte!

Habitat Charlotte Region is thrilled to be hosting the 2023 Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project! From October 1-6, 2023, volunteers from all over the world will come together here in Charlotte to build 20 new homes in our Meadows at Plato Price development.

This will mark the official return of the Carter Work Project after a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic. We are honored to pick up the hammer from Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville, the host of the 2019 Carter Work Project. The Carter Work Project will not only accelerate the development of a lively new affordable housing community in Meadows at Plato Price, but it will also help to bring national awareness to the ever-growing need for affordable housing.

All volunteer opportunities for the 2023 Carter Work Project will be handled by Habitat for Humanity International. To inquire about these opportunities, please visit:

Past, Present & Future

In its 36-year history, the Carter Work Project has brought people together all over the world to build homes, communities, and hope. In 1987, Charlotte hosted the third ever Carter Work Project. Jimmy and Rosalynn worked alongside volunteers, Habitat staff, and future homeowners to build 14 new affordable homes in Optimist Park, creating a lasting impact in the Charlotte community. When the Carter Work Project returns to Charlotte in 2023, volunteers, staff, partners, and future homeowners will once again come together, this time to build at the Meadows at Plato Price.


carrying on a legacy

After 36 dedicated years building with Habitat around the globe, Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter have retired from public life at the ages of 98 and 95. The Carters have forged a path of home and hope, and now a new generation of Habitat humanitarians will carry the torch. Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood will be continuing the Carters’ legacy as hosts of the 2023 Carter Work Project. Next year will mark Garth & Trisha’s 13th Carter Work Project and we look forward to welcoming them to our city.
