Mission of the Month

Piedmont Area Habitat for Humanity

Piedmont Area Habitat for Humanity is celebrating 30 years of helping families find safe, affordable and decent housing. They are currently building their 50th home in the area! This home is going up on Hylawn Avenue and is for Rosa and her daughter.

Having lived in Prince Edward County all her life, Rosa has deep roots in the community. This can be easily seen at the counter of a local eating spot in downtown Farmville, where for nineteen years Rosa has taken care of the needs of regular customers. Both she and her daughter are looking forward to having a place they can call their own. Having applied before, Rosa did not give up on her dream. When Rosa received the phone call that she had been approved this time, she jumped for joy, overwhelmed by the good news. Rosa’s roots run deep in Farmville. Now she will have the deep roots of a safe, decent, affordable home of her own.

Please keep Habitat for Humanity in your prayers! There are two ways that you can help make this home a reality for Rosa and her daughter. You can volunteer to help with the construction or you can make a financial gift. Financial gifts should be designated for MOM and left in the basket or offering plate in May.

If you would like to volunteer please call Habitat at 434-394-3001
