Welcome to Habitat for Humanity of the Mid-Ohio Valley!

Habitat for Humanity is a Christian Ministry that believes that all people deserve a simple, decent, affordable place to live. Habitat for Humanity of the Mid-Ohio Valley works towards the elimination of inadequate housing here in Wood County, West Virginia and Washington County, Ohio and has been an active affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International since 1990. Since then, we have completed 105 homes and have provided housing for over 375 individuals.

The Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project has been an annual build project since 1984. For one week, the Carters, and team members from around the world work alongside Habitat for Humanity on a specific project. One year the project is in the United States, and the following year, it is typically in a foreign country.

We have been fortunate to have some local folks attend these events upon occasion:

In 1992, Dianne McClung was the state president of the American Legion Auxiliary and was invited to participate in the Carter Work Project (CWP) in Washington, DC. In 1994, she and her husband Ed went to South Dakota to Eagle Butte, South Dakota, where the project was held on the Cheyenne River Native American reservation. The next year, Dianne and Ed traveled to Benton Harbor, Michigan for the CWP.

In 1997, our executive director, Alvin Phillips, participated in the CWP, called “Hammering in the Hills”, primarily located in Pikeville, Kentucky.

When Mary Townsend was the AmeriCorps coordinator for Habitat in West Virginia in 2003, she worked on the CWP in Valdosta, Georgia.

Then in 2016, Alvin Phillips and Heather Miller participated in the CWP in Memphis, Tennessee.

All local participants agree that this is a tremendous experience!

Will you be open tomorrow?

It’s time for another spotlight on a local Habitat homeowner! Jodi Hasley’s house was under construction near Belpre when the merger occurred in April, 2016. She was able to move into her house in October of that year. Jodi has given such positive messages about Habitat since then.

She states, “I love our house and the privacy, safety, and scenery we enjoy here. And knowing the kids helped, even in a small way in their own rooms still makes my heart happy. All you do is appreciated and acknowledged every day.”

And continuing the story—Jodi and her husband Roger were married on the lawn of their home on 07/01/2017--just a few months after she became a homeowner! Talk about love!!!
