Evaluation Conclusions

Back To Top



Habitat For Humanity of Virginia helps to advance the cause of affordable housing in Virginia by increasing the capacity of the 47 member Habitat Affiliates in Virginia. In the past five years we have conducted 11 training meetings, each of which addressed a number of topics. In the past two years, we have secured more than $5 million in funds for our member affiliates to use for land purchases, house construction, sustainable features, and the purchase and rehab of foreclosed houses. The overall purposes for which the Corporation is organized are as follows: (a) To promote the mission and work of Habitat for Humanity to provide decent affordable housing to those in need and create a better human habitat for economically disadvantaged people; (b) To develop and manage statewide programs and resources to benefit Virginia affiliates, including fundraising, increased public awareness of the Habitat for Humanity mission, and advocacy for local and state legislation to meet Virginia housing needs; (c) To work with Virginia affiliates to generate resources to strengthen their organizational capacity, their production of affordable homes, and the success of their homeowners; (d) To work in cooperation with other agencies and groups which have a similar or compatible purpose; (e) To enable an expanding number of persons from all walks of life to participate in this mission as homeowners, volunteers, and donors; and (h) To witness to and implement the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the Commonwealth of Virginia through the spoken and written words and deeds.
