NRV Habitat for Humanity project for Blacksburg families nears completion
BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - Seven families in the New River Valley have new homes near downtown Blacksburg.
COVID did not stop the NRVs Habitat for Humanity from completing this build project.
It has been up to a small staff working through the pandemic to make sure families can move in on time.
The Habitat staff said the pandemic has given new meaning to safe, stable and affordable housing.
Dan Crower, the construction manager, says finishing these homes is rewarding but it was all a team effort.
“You know watching how good this community is and how everyone just bands together to help everyone out made me want to put more people into this community and let them share that,” said Crowder.
This build is the largest project Habitat NRV has ever tackled. The project is largest by footprint, by number of families served at once and by the number of supporters involved.
Each townhome is also Earth Craft Certified, meaning they are more environmentally friendly.
The next community build project is set for 2021 in Floyd.
