Financials:

The annual budget is $1.2 million dollars.  Loudoun Habitat receives some grant money, but it also holds several fundraising events throughout the year to make up the difference.  Loudoun Habitat operates ReStore, which is located in Purcellville.  ReStore sells new and gently used building materials and  home improvement items.

History:

Established in 1993, Loudoun Habitat has built or rehabbed 21 houses in Loudoun County, serving approximately 80 people. Over the last two to three years, they have built 3 new construction homes in western Loudoun in the Village of St. Louis, just north of Middleburg, and purchased, rehabbed, and resold 6 foreclosed properties in the eastern part of the county. 

How you can help:

"Every year for the holidays, we do a collection for the children of our partner families,“ said Jeffrey Dee, Executive Director of Loudoun Habitat for Humanity.

“While all of our needs have been met this year for holiday donations, we are always interested in donations and support from the commumity, including donations of time for our projects,” he added.  

You can also visit and shop at Loudoun Habitat ReStore, 711 East Main St., Purcellville.  540-579-4508.  Store Hours: Tues. - Sat., 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.  

Their next fundraising event is the Annual Masquerade Ball which will be held March 2.
