Habitat for Humanity of Winchester-Frederick-Clarke Counties will be expanding their service area to Shenandoah County.
Representatives say the merger allows the organization to serve more families in the northern Shenandoah valley region and to help more families achieve home ownership. Last year the organization expanded into Clarke County and representatives say they look forward to taking on existing land, starting new home construction and supporting more families through various programs.
“We have a fairly large robust affiliate so we were asked to do that, which was an honor, so we were excited about having the opportunity to go down there and expand our capability to do more.” Matthew Peterson of Habitat for Humanity of Winchester-Frederick-Clarke says.
Habitat for Humanity expects the merger to be complete in the fall of 2018.
