A fundraising division of Habitat for Humanity Charlotte.

Our Mission


Julia's Café & Books is a fundraising divison of Habitat for Humanity of Charlotte. Through the sale of local, organic coffee, food options, and used books, Julia's Café & Books supports Habitat Charlotte's mission of building homes, communities, and hope in our city.

Just like our ReStore counterparts, Julia's operates as a retail outlet that raises funds for Habitat Charlotte. We discovered that delicious coffee, delightful food and donated books can be just as effective as hammers for building homes. If you're looking for a good read, have a few books that need a new home, or would like to enjoy high-quality coffee and eats in a unique café setting all while supporting a good cause, Julia's Café & Books is for you.

Habitat for Humanity of Charlotte starting building affordable housing in the Queen City in 1983, and has provided both new and repaired homes for over 1,450 Charlotte families. Worldwide Habitat for Humanity has served over one million families.

You can read more about the mission of Habitat for Humanity on their website.
