Ashe County finally has its approval to be an official Habitat for Humanity chapter (county). The approval was given on or about October 1, 2008.

"Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry. Habitat seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world, and to make a decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. People of all backgrounds, races, and religions build houses together in partnership with families in need."

There have been more than 250,000 homes buit around the world! Now Ashe County will have the chance to build homes together for families who need good, affordable housing!

Habitat is NOT a giveaway program. Families who are selected must participate fully in the process, including giving a lot of sweat equity to their project and others. Families must qualify too.

Habitat needs your help and donations. Contact Brian "Doc" Adams, 336-877-9080, and he will put you in contact with the right people. Doc will also be able to arrange for a speaker to come to your organization or club to discuss Ashe County's Habitat for Humaity.

Thanks! Happy Building!
