A Solid Foundation:
Every day people in our community partner with Blue Ridge Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With Habitat's help, they achieve the strength, stability, and self-reliance they need to build a better life for themselves and their families. As significant economic impacts of COVID-19 continue to unfold in 2021, the number of families struggling to make ends meet is only growing. Blue Ridge Habitat for Humanity has over $1.7 million in projects in different phases of development to help meet affordable housing demands and housing security issues in the Northern Shenandoah Valley.

Blue Ridge Habitat for Humanity transforms lives and community by creating affordable housing opportunities for those who qualify, providing critical home repairs to local homeowners, and organizing community outreach projects which impact our geographical service area which includes the City of Winchester and the counties of Clarke, Frederick and Shenandoah.
In April, Mr. McKenzie called Blue Ridge Habitat for Humanity, which serves the areas of Winchester and Clarke, Shenandoah and Frederick counties. As part of its mission, Blue Ridge Habitat for Humanity offers a home repair program in addition to its homebuilding program. In partnership with Habitat for Humanity International and Owens Corning, Blue Ridge Habitat was able to provide a new roof for Mr. McKenzie.
Mr. McKenzie is a U.S. Navy Veteran and said he was shocked when he learned he was picked for the Owen Corning Roof Deployment Program in partnership with Habitat for Humanity International and Blue Ridge Habitat for Humanity
