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.

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.

On April 15 a tornado, with winds of more than 130 miles per hour, severely damaged about 140 homes in Amherst County. The executive director of Amherst County’s Habitat for Humanity chapter has taken on the role of coordinator of disaster relief, putting out a call for help and supplies.

The local Habitat for Humanity chapter has received a state grant to support its annual neighborhood revitalization efforts.

On Monday, the Keep Virginia Beautiful environmental organization announced that Habitat for Humanity of Winchester-Frederick-Clarke had been selected as one of the recipients in its monthlong 30 Grants in Thirty Days initiative.
