About Us

Ashe County Habitat for Humanity is a housing ministry that works in partnership with the people of Ashe County to eliminate substandard housing by building safe, affordable, decent housing for families in need.

About Us

Ashe County Habitat for Humanity (ACHFH) became an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International in October, 2008. Since then our focus has been on raising community awareness about our organization, raising funds, and building our first home. Ashe County Habitat is incorporating “green technologies” in our homes to reduce energy costs and to foster good environmental stewardship in the community.

US Department of Health and Human Services statistics report that 15.8 % of the residents of Ashe County live below the poverty level. There is a definite need for affordable housing in our county and it is ACHFH’s goal to address that need. Habitat offers a hand up, not a hand out.

ACHFH is entirely “staffed” by dedicated volunteers who work hard to make home ownership a reality for our chosen families. The entire Board of Directors, all committee heads and all volunteers are part-time or full-time residents of Ashe County. Board members and Committee Chairpersons can be reached by leaving a message at 336-846-2525.
