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 92 homes completed by the two organizations.
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.
