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.
AmeriCorps*VISTA has been an important part of growth during our history! AmeriCorps is a government program that provides folks who serve their communities through their work with nonprofit organizations.
Our first office staff member was Rae Browne, who was instrumental in getting our affiliate established back in 1989-1991. We've also been blessed with other AmeriCorps*VISTA members as late as 2017, when Heather Miller (pictured at the Jimmy & Rosalyn Carter Work Project in Memphis) spent a year working with us! Other members who served with us are:
🏠 Sandy Tharp
🏠 Angie Schofield- pictured at Building on Faith 1998
🏠 Stacy Workman (served twice)
🏠 Brandi Spiker-Roof
🏠 Lisa Tanner
Also pictured are Mary Townsend and Stacy Workman-both staff members who are AmeriCorps alumni! Mary served in Habitat's regional office while it was here in Parkersburg, and then coordinated the AmeriCorps program for all West Virginia Habitat affiliates for over a year.
