As the world grapples with the public health crisis and economic impact of COVID-19, the importance of a place to call home has never been more pronounced, according to May 11 release from Energy Capital Habitat for Humanity (ECHFH), a charitable organization in Campbell County helping Campbell County families achieve the stability and self-reliance to build a better future since 1997.
ECHFH has been supporting local families through times of adversity, the release stated, and stands ready to lend a helping hand to those families who may find themselves in need of safe and affordable housing during this challenging time.
Through the Homes, Communities, Hope + You campaign, which is an international effort, the local Habitat organization will raise funds to support more Campbell County families who need access to the opportunities that an affordable home provides.
“Everyone deserves a safe place to call home, and never has that been more evident than what we just experienced throughout the country,” Brenda Kirk, ECHFH executive director, said in the release.
“There is a need in Campbell County for affordable housing, now more than ever.” – Kirk
Funds raised through the ECHFH Homes, Communities, Hope + You campaign will be used for the next major Habitat home build in Gillette, Kirk added.
