Villanova Campus Chapter Completes Home Sponsorship

June 2013 - A house on West Airy Street in Norristown is now home to a three generation family thanks to the efforts of Villanova's Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapter, our partner affiliate, and many generous donors and volunteers. 

The Campus Chapter raised $50,000 to help finance the rehab of the brick duplex.  It is the site where we held a "Blitz Build" in the fall of 2011, which prepared the house for the many volunteers who would work on making the house a suitable home for a Habitat family.

This was the Chapter's thrid home sponsorship.  We're excited to work with Habitat on the next exciting project.  Check back for details!
