Habitat for Humanity
Building Houses, Building Hope

Loudon County Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. Loudon County Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.

Volunteers are needed! From the construction site to the Home Store, there is a job for every skill level. Visit www.loudoncountyhabitat.org or call (865) 458-0704 for volunteer details.

Making A Difference In Someone’s Life… CWJC is a life-skills program, holistic in nature and ministers to women within her family and cultural systems. The focus is “choosing to change.” Each woman is encouraged to set appropriate goals, accept the mentor support system, and dedicate themselves to the self-discipline of meeting program guidelines. With the help of a trained and dedicated mentor, women have the much-needed help to progress step by step to personal growth and full time employment. There are no age, ethnic, denominational, or educational restrictions to enrollment. Enrollment to CWJC participants is limited only by a woman’s desire and commitment to change in order to become self-sufficient.

CWJC needs volunteers, mentors, sponsors, donors, gardeners, fundraisers, scrapbookers, and many others.  Call the CWJC office at 865-816-3403 or visit www.journeycwjc.org for more information. There is a place for everyone in CWJC and something everyone can do!
