Habitat for Humanity of Louisa County has big plans this year, our biggest to date! Our first project is to build our first “small” house for an elderly, homeless man who is living on his land with his dog. Fiercely independent, he doesn’t want to live in an assisted living facility and doesn’t want to lose his dog. His church and the Town of Louisa are working with us to provide him with safe, affordable housing at the lowest possible cost.
We also have two substantial renovations planned. One is for a home that we acquired through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. This home is being finished and has three large bedrooms as well as a nice yard for a large family. The second renovation is for an elderly woman and her disabled daughter. Their income has prevented them from doing renovations over the past few years and the situation is becoming dire.
In addition to these three projects, after the New Year, we will be working to remove an old house on a double lot on Blueberry Lane in Louisa and replace it with two new homes for waiting families! As always, our families partner with us to provide “sweat equity”.
But, we need help. We need volunteers who can build, are trained in plumbing, electric, carpentry, or just willing to learn. We need volunteers to help with fundraising, communications, family services and even bookkeeping. In other words, we need you!
We also need donations, both in kind and financial. You can contact us directly through the “Contact” page or call us at 540-967-0486. We cannot do this alone. Your neighbors depend upon you!
