Who We Are


Louisa County Habitat for Humanity, a chapter of the Greater Charlottesville Habitat for Humanity, seeks to provide simple, decent, affordable housing to socially and economically deprived people in Louisa County area as part of Habitat for Humanity International's global ministry to build houses in partnership with God's people in need. By building and rehabilitating homes in the Louisa County area, we hope to contribute to the elimination of inadequate housing and encourage members of our community to assume an active Christian stewardship locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.

By bringing together people of all races, classes, and religions in this common cause, we hope to foster the kinds of personal relationships among God's people that will encourage mutual understanding and respect. In keeping with this commitment, eligibility to receive housing being built or rehabilitated by this organization shall not be denied on the basis of race, creed, national origin, sex, or age. Motivated by a sense of Christian love, we believe that working in cooperation with God's people in need to create a better habitat in which to live and work is an important way to witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the world.

Louisa County Habitat for Humanity seeks to fulfill its mission by soliciting donations of money, land, building materials and volunteer labor to help house God’s people in need.



Committee work is the lifeblood of Habitat for Humanity. Long before any building can take place, a partner family must be selected, funds must be raised, a building site selected and procured, and many, many others things must be done.

The seven committees listed below work together to perform the numerous jobs necessary to serve our mission. There is an ongoing need for willing volunteers on all of these teams. Feel free to contact the chairperson of any committee you might like to serve on.
