April 2019            Homeowner Orientation Session

   

   


Celebration & Dedication

It all started with 6 intial directors who wanted to make a difference in their community.  With less than $3500 Fluvanna County Habitat for Humanity was born.  Josina Bakker was a driving force and led the organization as president for four years.  

Early on the organization had to fundraise all the money needed to build a house before construction could start.  some of you may remember the white elephant sale’s, tap tap fundraiser, raffle’s, variety shows, silent auctions, spaghetti dinners, pancake breakfasts, habitat golf tournaments and so much more.

 

The dedication to the then all volunteer run organization was tremendous.  

 

A few key events over the years that helped to guide the organization include:

 

  • June 1993 officially recognized as a Habitat for Humanity affiliate

 

  • In 1995 the first Fluvanna Habitat homeowners move in!

 

  • Over the next 14 years Habitat built 9 more homes throughout the county.

 

  • 2009 Fluvanna habitat started building to earth craft standards with the first home in high mountain acres, a five-home community.

 

  • With house number 15 habitat started using the 502-mortgage program allowing the organization to do more

 

  • In 2012 groundbreaking took place at Cedar Ridge a five home earth craft community

 

  • In 2017 the first home with completed here at Houchens place a 27 lot affordable housing community

 

  • In 2018 a home repair program was added as way to help community members age in place.

 

With the completion of this house, house #22.  29 adults and 47 children have a safe, affordable place to live.  We look forward to the next 25 years.  Our hope is that you will walk alongside us; in fact we have another house that will start going up in September and you can help by volunteering on one of the build days or financially contributing to the organization.

 

 

The reason why many of us volunteer, financially and prayerfully support this organization is because we want to make an impact in someone’s life.  It’s not so much that we built 22 houses but that we have created homes for 76 people and with your continued help we have the opportunity to do so much more.
