Clients served by the HFHEP Affordable Housing project are low-income families living in substandard housing with incomes at or below 80% of the median income for the county in which the build is located. These are hard working families unable to obtain a mainstream mortgage from a local bank due to lack of credit, credit history, or not enough income. Their biggest need is stable, safe, and affordable housing where they can live, grow, and thrive. Without a stable, affordable home, the children often do not do well in school, health issues sometimes occur due to living conditions, and housing costs prevent them from paying for other basic needs such as food, utilities, and medicine. Habitat provides housing opportunities with payments that never go over 30% of the families’ income, leaving them funds for other basic need items.

During construction, our partner families as well as our committed volunteers need safety supplies to ensure they are protected from the various elements on the site. These supplies include safety goggles, masks (dust masks as well as regular masks), well-fitting gloves, fire-extinguishers, first aid supplies, water, ear plugs, and other items to guard their health and safety. These are the items we are trying to raise funds for during the Unity Campaign.

While we ask that volunteers bring some of these items with them such as safety glasses and gloves, many forget and others are unable to purchase these items due to their own limited budgets. Purchasing and having safety items on site, ensures that all volunteers can participate without fear of being embarrassed by not being able to purchase their own safety supplies.

The Unity Campaign is a 12-day fundraiser powered by United Way of the Eastern Panhandle. During the 12 Days of Giving from April 1 - 12, donors can contribute to any of the participating agencies and 100% of their contribution will go directly to the nonprofit organization of their choice.
