Organization Overview

Habitat forHumanity Winchester | Frederick | Clarke (HFHWFC) is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization focused on building and rehabilitating homes, communities, and hope.

Since 1998, HFHWFC has helped change the lives of 61 families by helping them become homeowners in Winchester-Frederick-Clarke.  Through our home-buying and rental programs, we have provided shelter for over 200 men, women, and children. Families served by our homeownership program must have an income that is 30-60% below the local Area Median Income. Each adult family member invests a minimum of 175 sweat equity hours building their home or those of other HFHWFC future homeowners. In addition, they must attend a series of educational workshops regarding financials, homeownership, and basic home maintenance. In this way, future family partners earn the ownership of their homes and take pride in their invested work.
