Building strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter since 1997.
2019 saw us scale to meet the challeges of our community:
Blue Ridge Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization focused on building and rehabilitating homes, communities, and hope. As a non-profit housing agency, BRHFH is grateful that businesses, civic organizations, churches, and individuals understand the value of, and need for, affordable housing. This is the reason for BRHFH’s continued growth over the last 20 years. We believe everyone deserves a decent and safe place to live.
Winchester ReStore is a home improvement outlet center that sells new and used building supplies, furniture, and home décor at discount prices. Proceeds benefit Blue Ridge Habitat for Humanity.
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.
We believe that public awareness, advocacy, and education campaigns can be used to spark community dialogue about the role housing affordability and housing options play in achieving our goal of diverse, sustainable and economically vibrant communities.
Our team has been closely monitoring the escalations surrounding Coronavirus / COVID-19 and we believe now is the time for us to do even more to protect you, our team, Habitat partner families, and the community we all care deeply about. Starting today, we are increasing our efforts to help flatten the curve of this harmful virus in the weeks ahead. Please visit our COVID-19 response(s) and resources for up-to-date information.
Executive Director Matthew Peterson appeared with Barry Lee on WINC FM's Community Corner to discuss Habitat's name change, expansion into Shenandoah County and upcoming events.
Habitat for Humanity of Winchester-Frederick-Clarke has changed its name to Blue Ridge Habitat for Humanity.
The change, made effective on Monday, was prompted by the local Habitat chapter absorbing the Shenandoah County chapter earlier this year, according to a news release from the organization.
