Notes from the Director

2014 - 2015 Caring Campaign: Celebrating 25 Years!

House #70. Wow. When I think back twenty-four years ago to 1990, we were starting our first house just about this time of year. We finished that house in May, 1991, and then took another year to complete the next home.

House #70 is just across the street from that second house. It’s almost as if we’ve come full circle.

It’s great to look back at our accomplishments and very fulfilling to know we have provided housing for over 300 individuals during this past 24 years. But it’s also very humbling to realize there is still much work ahead of us. Housing and rental costs are becoming even more of an issue than they were in 1990.

We receive calls almost every day from folks who are in desperate need of a better housing situation.

Won’t you help us as we begin building the next 70 homes? It’s an incredible time in the life of our affiliate. More and more is happening each and every day. We could use your help as a volunteer on the worksite, on a committee or in the ReStore. We are committed to being good stewards of your donation (and WV tax credits are available if your donation is $500 or more).

Contact us to get started. You can be an important part of our future!

NIP Tax Credits have arrived!

We’ve received more than usual this year, so we’re excited to let you know WV taxpayers may donate $500 or more and receive half of the amount back in tax credits. This saves that much on your 2014 taxes, and helps us build houses at the same time! We love tax credits!

St. Andrews United Methodist Youth Group raised all the money for the doorknobs in our most recent house, by collecting $250 through our Dollars for Doorknobs campaign.
