Project Description

Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity (AAHH) incorporated in 1983 under the name of Western North Carolina Habitat for Humanity making it the first Habitat affiliate in North Carolina. Today the state boasts 87 affiliates.

The first Habitat house took volunteers 18 months to complete with a few dedicated volunteers working only on Saturdays. Currently, volunteers work six days each week; they begin a new house every 3 1/2 weeks.
