Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
Washington County, Virginia Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1998.
We started out as an informal association of enthusiastic volunteers providing repair and home construction assistance. Habitat for Humanity helped to coordinate our transition into the larger organization. Throughout the 2000s, these faithful volunteers continued working, building about one home per year.
Over the past year we have built a committed staff. Which includes a Executive Director, Construction Manager, Administrative Assistant and key volunteers.
We have completed five houses since 2011 with two more currently under construction. Our most recent expansion efforts include a Critical Home Repair program which was started in late 2014. We have completed 20 repairs for low-income families in the last two years, and the program is now self-sustaining.
WCHFH is a small organization meeting clearly identified needs in the community. The organization has made significant progress in building its internal core of staff and board members with the experience to move the organization forward. Additional investments in planning, structure, skill development and external relations will ensure a strong foundation positioned to support the organization for future generations.
