Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville is excited to announce the Wickham Pond Framing Push, in celebration of our first mixed-income build in Crozet and our 25th Anniversary. With the help of community volunteers, from September 16 – 24, Habitat has set the ambitious goal of framing six homes in seven days. This effort will bring six families one step closer to realizing their dreams of home ownership.

“This project is special,” said Habitat President and CEO Dan Rosensweig. “Wickham Pond is a beautiful neighborhood and Crozet has seen prices skyrocket in recent years. We’re thrilled to begin to address the affordable housing crisis in Albemarle County.”

Habitat has received such an enthusiastic response to our call for volunteers, only Friday, September 23rd has volunteer spots still available.

“We are thrilled that so many community members have stepped up to help with this effort,” said Garrett Trent, Volunteer Manager. “It’s a great way to kick off our first Crozet build.”

With support from developer Vito Cetta and the County of Albemarle, the Wickham Pond project will serve as the blueprint to create affordable housing opportunities throughout the Albemarle County growth area, while demonstrating that Habitat homes will enhance and strengthen new communities across the Greater Charlottesville area.
