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.

We have raised $621,818.00 of our $1,700,000.00  goal.

SHENANDOAH COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) - Thursday was an exciting day for two families in Shenandoah County as they cut the ribbon on their brand new homes.

WINCHESTER — When Liliya El Abani’s husband died unexpectedly three years ago, she was left alone to raise three children and had no idea how she would make it.

Good fortune eventually led her to Blue Ridge Habitat for Humanity, a Winchester-based nonprofit at 400 Battaile Drive that makes it possible for financially struggling individuals and families to buy a house with affordable mortgage payments in exchange for their help in building the structure.

WINCHESTER — This is a tale of serendipity.

It starts with a woman on Woodland Avenue who lives in a well-kept, two-story home that was built in 1932 that's in need of repairs. Unfortunately, she is on a fixed income and in failing health, so she can't see to the work herself.
