Support for Habitat

Ayite Family

Housing is transformative: with a safe, decent and affordable home and a stable community, families can provide security for their children; their sense of dignity and pride grow; their health, physical safety, and emotional security improve; and their educational and job prospects increase.

In 2012, the Department of Medicine pledged $60,000 in support of building a home for the Ayite family in the Sunrise neighborhood — the nation’s first trailer park transformation without resident displacement. Thanks to countless Department of Medicine faculty, staff and others, most of that money was raised, and the Ayites have settled into their new home. Since then, we have continued to do fund-raising for Habitat and contribute volunteer time to Habitat builds.

We encourage your continued support of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville -- through your financial contributions and donation of volunteer time. To learn more, visit Habitat's website here.
