Habitat for Humanity Mission:

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville (Habitat) is a cutting edge non-profit housing organization creating simple, decent, affordable homes in partnership with low-income families, volunteers and the community of Greater Charlottesville. Homes are built with a volunteer labor force including homeowner families, corporate, civic, and church groups. Habitat is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI), a global ministry working to end housing poverty world-wide.


In 2013 Habitat completed construction at Sunrise, the first trailer park transformation in the nation without resident displacement. Currently, Habitat owns and operates the Southwood Trailer Park with a similar goal of redeveloping it responsibly and compassionately as a mixed-income, mixed- use, sustainable community for current and future residents. Southwood is the area’s largest single concentration of affordable housing and its greatest remaining redevelopment opportunity. When complete, the redeveloped Southwood will be unprecedented in scale nationally.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville also runs the Habitat Store, a local retail operation established in 2003 that sells new and used building supplies, furniture and home décor at discount prices. Most of the Store’s inventory is donated by local individuals and businesses and all proceeds benefit the Charlottesville Habitat affiliate.
