Habitat for Humanity is the charitable partner for a popular 5K race in Virginia. This year, we need virtual runners instead of physical runners!
Help us get the word out! Beyond facebook! The actual race is on Sept. 5th but virtual runners can run anywhere, anytime.
Habitat for Humanity depends upon donations and sponsorships to build homes in the community. It is through events, private donors and corporate that we are able to accomplish this mission
Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg partners with area families, local government, businesses, faith groups, schools, associations and individual volunteers and donors to build and renovate affordable homes for sale to qualifying families.
An ecumenical group of individuals formed this local affiliate in 1985. We started our first home in 1986 and, since then, our affiliate has constructed and renovated over 200 houses in our local community!
Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg is located in Newport News, VA. We are a non-profit home builder, building homes for families of low-income means. Our first-time home buyer program is a hand up, not a hand out. Our families go through an application and selection process. Once selected, they have to perform 200 hours of sweat equity, maintain steady employment and good credit. They also have to take our mandatory home ownership classes. Then they have to pay their monthly mortgage on time. These monthly mortgages are then recycled to build more Habitat homes.
