Serving Fauquier and Rappahannock Counties, Fauquier Habitat for Humanity helps hundreds of families achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance through affordable homeownership. And when we hear the inspirational words of homebuyers like Mia, we are reminded of why we move forward, more grateful than ever, for the opportunities to give, serve, advocate and grow together as an organization.
Despite challenges and surprises that have come over the past three years, we have never stopped building and growing and that is because of YOUR commitment to the mission of Fauquier Habitat for Humanity. Together, we continue to serve with the knowledge of how a safe, energy-efficient, affordable home is a crucial necessity in keeping all families and our communities healthy and safe.
Through our homeownership program, families partner with Fauquier Habitat for Humanity to build and purchase a Habitat home. Fauquier Habitat supplements volunteer labor and donations by hiring skilled contractors and construction workers, employing operations staff, and purchasing all kinds of goods and services that cumulatively boost our local economy. Each Fauquier Habitat for Humanity home (new, renovated or repaired) supports between 1.3 and 4.6 full-time jobs in a given year, with a median of 3.5 jobs per home.
