Family and a safe, warm home are two of the most important things everyone needs in life and affordable, adequate housing provides the cornerstone to those needs.
Mon Valley Habitat for Humanity provides moderate to low-income individuals and families the opportunity to achieve homeownership and have a warm, cozy place to call home. By partnering with Habitat, future homeowners help build their home, make a down payment, and pay an affordable mortgage. With the help of people like you from the communities we serve, Habitat for Humanity offers our neighbors a hand up, not a hand out.
I think it’s important we invest locally. If you give of your time or financial backing, it’s going to a local family – right here in Mon Valley.
As the wife of West Virginia University’s head football coach, myself, along with the other coaches’ spouses, strive to be the student-athletes’ “home away from home parents” because we are all family. Our community IS our family. We are Mountaineers, giving back to those in West Virginia when we support Mon Valley Habitat for Humanity. Together we help build more than just homes; we empower our community by building strength, stability, and self-reliance with safe, affordable housing.
Because I know that every parent wants a better, brighter future for their family, I am honored to support Mon Valley Habitat for Humanity’s mission. Please join me in supporting this great cause. Any contribution – $5, $500, or even $5,000 – stays in our communities because Mon Valley Habitat builds here.
Not all of our neighbors have a safe and warm place to call home. We need your support to make a meaningful impact in people’s lives. Please consider making a donation to this cause. Your generosity will make the dream to own a home an affordable reality for local West Virginia families.
