Habitat for Humanity of the Mid-Ohio Valley began on April 1, 2016, as a result of the merger of Washington County Habitat for Humanity in Ohio and Wood County Habitat for Humanity in West Virginia.
Washington County Habitat for Humanity started in late 1989; Wood County Habitat for Humanity started in early 1990. Since that time, there have been 102 homes completed in the two counties.
The goal of Habitat for Humanity of the Mid-Ohio Valley is to build 5-6 homes each year.
Many groups and individuals have contributed to the success of Habitat for Humanity in this area during the past 25+ years.
There has been a ReStore in located in Wood County since 2001–the first location was on Elder Street in south Parkersburg. The current location of the ReStore is at 600 16th Street in Vienna, which has been open since April, 2016.
