North Collin County Habitat for Humanity break-in in Princeton.

NCC Habitat values the tools at about $2,500. All tools have “NCCHFH” engraved on them.

“We are saddened that the tools were stolen from the trailer at the home in Princeton," said Celeste H. Cox, NCC Habitat's executive director. "This home is scheduled to be finished this month for our family. These tools help us build affordable homes for qualified families and taking them not only hurts the organization, but the families that we serve.”

A report was filed with the Princeton Police Department. Anyone with information about the incident are asked to call the Princeton Police Department at 972-736-3901. Contractors were there pouring the new street, so NCC Habitat is hopeful someone saw something.

North Collin County Habitat for Humanity (NCC Habitat) is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles. We put God’s love into action by building homes and communities. We are dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide. We encourage positive relationships throughout the community by advocating for fair housing policies and by providing training to help families improve their shelter conditions.

We enable families throughout northern Collin County (Anna, Celina, Farmersville, Frisco, McKinney, Melissa, Princeton and Prosper) to achieve the dream of home ownership and dignity. With the help of partnerships, NCC Habitat has built over 97 houses. We also have started a new program called “A Brush With Kindness” where we help low income families with exterior repairs including roof, siding, paint and general clean up. We’ve served 81 families through this program (mostly seniors). Internationally, NCC Habitat has built 34 homes in Mexico, Egypt, Asia Tsunami and Honduras. Habitat also operates a ReStore that is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday. We sell new and gently used building materials and furniture to the public. For more information, visit
