From Tragedy to Hope: Building Homes, Building Lives

Hurricane Florence took everything. My home, my family's future – gone. We were stranded, homeless, and facing an impossible climb. But from the ashes rose Live and Play, a beacon of hope for families like mine.


We are more than just home builders. We're a non-profit driven by the belief that every family deserves a safe and affordable place to call home. We build more than houses; we build communities that foster well-being, resilience, and a sense of belonging.


This is why Live and Play makes a difference:

  • New, low-cost homes: Brand-new construction ensures lasting value and affordability.

  • Playgrounds & green spaces: We prioritize mental and physical health with safe play areas and vibrant green spaces.

  • Down payment assistance: We remove barriers to homeownership with down payment support.

  • Long-term support: We maintain playgrounds and offer grants to ensure lasting community prosperity.


Why donate?


Your contribution, big or small, directly impacts lives. You help families rebuild, offering stability and a foundation for their future. You invest in creating vibrant communities where children can play, families can connect, and hope can flourish.

  • Donate: Fuel our mission with your financial support. Every dollar counts!

  • Spread the word: Share our story and inspire others to get involved.

  • Volunteer: Lend your time and skills to build homes, organize events, or spread awareness.


We can build homes, hope, and a brighter future for countless families.
