ReStore- Rebranded, Renewed and Expanded
Wednesday, 23 July 2014 14:38

If you have not visited ReStore in recent weeks then you will be surprised at the changes which have taken place. DPCHFH is rebranding and expanding ReStore by offering more appliances, furniture, home décor and decorating materials, and new building supplies. We also have a nice range of items such as cabinet doors that can be used for arts and crafts projects. ReStore income helps support our home building program. Recently, we renewed our commitment to the Hughes Street area completing our fourth house in the neighborhood with three more planned.

ReStore also accepts donations of gently used furniture and appliances. Your donations support homes for low-income families while earning you a tax deduction. What could be better than the soul satisfying experience of helping others while being rewarded for your good deed?

ReStore is currently open 10 am-to- 2 pm Tuesday-Saturday. Drive to 503 Hughes Street and explore the new ReStore. New bargains are arriving daily.

 
Bank of America Grant Supports DPCHFH
Wednesday, 23 July 2014 08:37

Danville-Pittsylvania County Habitat for Humanity (DPCHFH) is delighted to announce that we have been awarded $5,000 from the Bank of America (BOA) Charitable Foundation. BOA has been and continues to be a strong supporter of DPCHFH’s Hughes Street rebuilding effort. More than simply building a home, DPCHFH is changing the face of Hughes Street and the lives of the people who live there. The next Hughes Street home will be one of three houses to be built in the neighborhood in 2014-15. Home ownership will become a reality for families that never dared dream of such a possibility without the support of DPCHFH and partners such as Bank of America.

The 2010 census reports that 26.6% of the population of Danville lives below the poverty level. In the city, 41.7% of children under the age of 18 live in poverty. Low-income families pay a disproportionately high percentage of their income for housing which makes budgeting for the rest of their needs difficult. Fair market rent for a 3-bedroom home in Danville is $887 per month. A worker earning minimum wage would have to work over 100 hours per week to afford this rent payment. In comparison, the mortgage payment for a newly constructed Habitat house is approximately 30% of the fair market rent, bringing decent housing and homeownership within reach of families who would otherwise never be able to afford their own home. The typical Habitat applicant is dealing with substandard housing conditions such as health hazards, safety concerns and overcrowding. Habitat homes give partner families the opportunity for a stable, healthy home environment which instills security, a sense of dignity and pride, and an increase in educational and job prospects.

DPCHFH requires that all partner families participate in an education program. Coursework must be completed before a partner family can move into their home. Qualified instructors provide valuable information on such topics as budgeting and saving, credit issues, predatory lending issues, insurance, loan closing, and home maintenance. Classes help families to be prepared for the increased level of responsibility that comes with homeownership.

DPCHFH offers meaningful service opportunities for civic-minded citizens as well as needed service opportunities for offenders who must complete court-mandated community service hours. These service opportunities allow the participant to work side-by-side with other citizens, give back to the community, help a specific family in need, and learn valuable and useful skills. This collaborative effort brings together people of all faiths fosters a spirit of unity and tolerance. While special skills are appreciated anyone can volunteer to carry materials, assist with site clean-up, paint, provide simple nailing and hammering, or simply handout bottles of water on a hot day. During the 2012-13 fiscal year, some 265 individuals volunteered over 8,000 hours of service.
