2017 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.
