GOALS

  • To make homes affordable long-term, as well as initially through a modest sales price, by using design and products that optimize energy efficiency.
  • To carefully steward resources, going the extra mile in home design and materials selection to use environmentally friendly and energy-efficient products, and in site design to preserve mature vegetation and wildlife habitat.
  • To eliminate substandard housing in Pendleton County through construction and rehab of simple, decent, affordable housing.
This $48,000 family home has been built for long-term affordability

SPECIAL INFORMATION

Earth Day Blitz Build, April 19-26, 2008.
This event entails building an entire energy efficient environmentally friendly house in one week.

In this area of West Virginia, there are still about 25% of the families without either indoor plumbing or a kitchen. Much of the housing is substandard, as the per capita income is $10,065. Without the help of some 800-1300 volunteers that come to stay at our volunteer center yearly, Almost Heaven Habitat for Humanity would not be able to build affordable housing.

Family owners, volunteers and Habitat staff participate in a building blitz to complete the home quickly

Volunteers get paid in hugs
