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:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
