building change

The traditional new home construction model remains the foundation of Habitat for Humanity Roanoke Valley’s mission, but it is only one of many ways the organization impacts the community. Habitat for Humanity of the Roanoke Valley’s construction efforts also consists of buying a vacant or incomplete house and fixing it up to help complete the house and the community.

safe, reliable housing

New Home Construction

Habitat for Humanity of the Roanoke Valley believes that homeownership is a major key to a family’s safety, health, stability and financial freedom. New homes are sold to Habitat homebuyers with an affordable mortgage; that is, a monthly payment that does not exceed 30% of their income. In exchange, Habitat homebuyers invest hundreds of Sweat Equity hours prior to purchasing their new home.

Green Initiatives

Habitat Roanoke is committed to building and repairing homes in the greenest manner possible, and believes that energy efficiency is a major part of the affordable housing solution. The organization’s green goals are pursued through construction materials and practices, recycling programs, and ongoing research for ways to improve all sustainability efforts. Habitat for Humanity Roanoke Valley currently participates in the Thrivent and EnergyStar programs.

Rehab Homes

Occasionally, Habitat for Humanity Roanoke Valley’s construction team will purchase (or will have donated) foreclosed, vacant or incomplete homes to fix up and resell to Habitat homebuyers. This element of the affordable housing ministry impacts the community in two ways:

  1. Addresses the need for more affordable housing.
  2. Stabilizes neighborhoods with high-foreclosure and high-vacancy rates that are more vulnerable to crime.
