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 2022, the number of families struggling to make ends meet is only growing. We are currently raising final phase funding for the development and construction Norris Village: Phase II, a 5 home mini-subdivision.  We broke ground on the project in November 2021 and infrastructure will begin in January 2022.

Take a look at the homes we completed in 2022.

No one has greater appreciation of the phrase “There’s no place like home for the holidays” than a person who hasn’t always known if they would have a home at Christmas.

Take, for example, Karen Burrough, a single woman raising four children in a rented home that her landlord is eager to sell. Or Jasmine Edwards, the mother of two boys who once was forced to live out of her car because she couldn’t afford a home. Or Liliya El Abani, an attorney who fled war-torn Libya with her family and had to start over from scratch in the United States.

Blue Ridge Habitat for Humanity turned a corner Tuesday morning, positioning itself as an organization that can help meet Winchester's growing demand for affordable housing rather than one that only assists financially struggling homeowners on a case-by-case basis.

"This is truly an amazing, wonderful day, certainly a milestone for the organization," said the Winchester-based nonprofit's executive director, Kim Herbstritt.
