What We Do
Amherst County Habitat for Humanity puts God's love into action by bringing people together to Build Homes, Communities and Hope. We offer a unique solution that reduces dependency on government programs and breaks the cycle of GENERATIONAL poverty. We start by partnering with families through our Homebuyer's Club financial classes. Upon graduation, applications are received and processed. We charge ZERO percent interest on our self-held mortgages, building homes with volunteer labor & some donated materials, thus making the housing affordable. All of our office & payroll expenses are covered by our incoming mortgage payments thus allowing all donations, fundraisers and undesignated grants to go 100% into our building program. We are a "teach a man to fish" non-profit basically serving those in the ALICE category: Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed, giving them the needed hand up to stand on their own!
Our #GivingTuesdayGreaterLYH greatest need is for construction funding whether through Amazon gift cards or cash donations to Amherst Habitat. We still have VA State Tax credits available for donations $5000 or greater.
