Beautiful things are happening in Huntly as friends and family join together to help Erin and Jason Haley build their home.
Starting with a bare foundation, the Haley family and volunteers from Fauquier and Rappahannock Counties, including some from Golden Rule Builders and H.C. Lane & Son LLC, have made great progress. This is thanks in part to Judi Burke, super-volunteer from the Rappahannock UMC, who has been keeping the crew well fed. And of course to Bill Mercer, our gifted Site Manager!
We’re building on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. No experience is needed. Learn more and sign up here.
The weather is great, the view is stellar, and every hand makes a difference!
The effort is aimed at addressing “quality of life issues as well as housing concerns,” the organization announced in a news release.
In addition to local residents, Fauquier Habitat has invited businesses, organizations and government officials to participate in the coalition with the goal of creating an action plan, approved by the residents, to help revitalize the street, according to the news release.

Fauquier Habitat, along with community leaders, supporters, homeowner families and friends, will be celebrating the completion of construction on our “Blitz Build” home at a dedication ceremony in Warrenton on Saturday, April 8 at 10:00 a.m.
Warrenton, Va.– The best way for families to thrive is to be in a thriving neighborhood—and the greatest asset in any community is its residents.
With this in mind, Fauquier Habitat for Humanity has initiated a Neighborhood Revitalization project in the historic Haiti Street neighborhood. NRI addresses quality of life issues as well as housing concerns.
“The community plan will be resident-driven rather than organizationally driven,” Fauquier Habitat Executive Director Paul Linz commented. “Therefore, we started this project by surveying Haiti Street residents about what they liked and what they didn’t like about their community.”
In addition to local residents, Fauquier Habitat has invited businesses, organizations and government officials to participate in the coalition with the goal of creating an action plan, approved by the residents, to help revitalize the street.
The Haiti Street neighborhood was a natural choice for Fauquier Habitat’s initial NRI project as two new Habitat homes are being built there this year.
Heading up the initiative is new Fauquier Habitat staff member Mary Correia. “My priority for the next few months is really getting to know the residents of the Haiti Street community, learning what their vision of their neighborhood is, and how we might assist them in making their hopes a reality.”
One of the first steps is a neighborhood Spring Clean-Up Day being held on March 25 which will give residents an opportunity to set out unusable items from their homes and yards for pick up and disposal. Additional beautification and home repair projects will be developed as the initiative continues.
Habitat for Humanity International’s Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative (NRI) was born out of a desire to serve more families and have a greater impact on the communities Habitat affiliates serve. Affiliates offering NRI can affect more change through community development and additional housing solutions such as critical home repair, home rehabilitation and home weatherization.

Fauquier Habitat is pleased to welcome, Mary Correia to the organization.
Our wonderful volunteers continue their labor of love. Today they are finishing up the trim and door installation. Support these wonderful guys: Dave Meadows, Fred Koozer, Don Cruikshank, Darrell Friend, Jim Hottle, and drinking coffee in the background our (usually) hard working Construction Manager Tony Toth, by signing up to take a shift or delivering a great lunch to them.
Saturday is Paint Day! There are just a few spot open. Add your name here!
Fauquier Habitat for Humanity is pleased to announce that construction on Jason and Erin Haley’s Habitat home in Huntly, Va., will resume in April.
“We are truly excited that we will soon be able to give this project our undivided attention. The support of the community has been amazing to date and I expect it will only get better as we come together to get the Haley’s into their new home,” said Paul Linz, Executive Director.
Last summer, Construction Manager Tony Toth worked with contractors and a few energetic and dedicated Rappahannock volunteers to complete the demolition of the existing lot structures, excavate for the house and driveway, and build the foundation, complete with interior slab, waterproofing, drain tile and backfilling.
Coming up against a hard deadline for their fall “Blitz Build” home project in Warrenton, Fauquier Habitat temporarily stopped construction on the Haley’s home.
“We apologize for the delay,” said Toth, “but spring is a beautiful time of year to build a new home. We are looking forward to working steadily with local volunteers so we can hand the key over to Jason and Erin by July.”
Funding for the Haley’s home is nearly complete at 86 percent due to the generosity and support of the Rappahannock community. Donations can be made through the Fauquier Habitat website or by check to Fauquier Habitat for Humanity, PO Box 3189, Warrenton, VA.
Anyone at least 16 years who is interested in helping on the build site may complete a volunteer application. No experience is necessary.
For more information, please contact Fauquier Habitat at firstname.lastname@example.org or 540.341.4952.
Since our Blitz Build at 110 Haiti Street, a core group of volunteers has been working diligently to finish construction of the home alongside our wonderful Partner Family, the Navarettes. This stellar team includes David Meadows, Darrell Friend, Anna Roscigno, Vernon Welsted, Fred Koozer, Mike Bongiovi, Emily McBroom, Don Cruikshank, and John Suter.
Also in this group is Carolina Navarette, a shining reminder of why we all are committed to Habitat for Humanity’s mission. As Tony, our Construction Manager said,
“Our hats are off to Carolina for her dedication to the process. She is there nearly every working day not only providing the volunteers, and me, with food and drink, but steadily working with us to build her home… The Navarretes have met their sweat equity requirement but continue to give; they should make us all feel proud.
We are grateful to have had the incredible energy and steadfast support of this team through the cold winter months. Now however, some weariness and aching backs are setting in, leaving us short of help with work still to do to get the Navarettes in their home.
At this point of construction, drywall is being hung and we will quickly be moving on to priming and installing trim.
