Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville builds homes, neighborhoods and community.  Habitat for Humanity partners with hard-working, low-income local residents called Partner Families who join together with volunteers to build simple, decent, affordable homes. Also, The New Paradigm places an emphasis on mixed-income neighborhoods, denser housing types (such as duplexes, quadruplexes and even larger multifamily condo buildings) and green building.
