2018 Annual Report


Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity's 2018 Annual Report

annual report



from the executive director

Dear Friends,

Maybe I am naïve, but

I never stop believing

that we can change the

world. You must share

that belief since you are

taking the time to read

this annual report. We

crave assurance that

we make the lives of our neighbors better:

that our lives have impact. In 2018, I saw

first hand the impact you made through

Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity.

Impact requires vision and action. We

started 2018 by committing to a bold

vision to empower 1,000 more families

with healthy, stable homes in the next

decade. Throughout the year, we built the

strategies to achieve this audacious goal.

We designed compact neighborhoods

around two-story townhomes. We

expanded home repair, keeping people in

the homes and neighborhoods they love

as they age.

We supported Habitat of Madison County

in completing their first new home in over

a decade. We were able to accomplish all

of this because you gave your time, voice

and financial support with world-changing

generosity. Thank you!

Hopefully the stories in this report

remind you of your positive impact on

this community and inspire you for the

challenges to come. Far too many of our

neighbors lack adequate housing. With

your partnership, clear vision and effective

action, we will grow the impact we have in

Buncombe County and beyond.

In Gratitude,

Andy Barnett

Valeria Wyda

As the Asheville area prospers, many of our neighbors are being left behind. 1 in 8

households pay more than half of their income for housing, leaving too little for other

basic needs. The social, economic, and health impacts that result affect us all.

Over the next decade, with your help, we will work to empower 1,000 families

in the Asheville region to improve their housing and build strong, stable futures.

We’ve just begun building townhomes for the first time in order to serve more families.

Later this year, we will open a 2nd ReStore. Next, we’ll break ground on our largest

neighborhood (nearly 100 homes), serving the widest range of incomes. Then we’ll

celebrate the milestone of 500 families served through our home repair program. And

that’s just some of what we’ll accomplish in the next five years.

Thank you for your support! By using your time, financial resources, and voice

you help build a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

We build strength, stability and self-reliance.

of safe, stable housing

Habitat homeownership brings both

excitement about what’s to come--

and relief from what’s left behind.

For LaQuila and her daughter, “time to go

home” was drawn out

and delayed every day.

They spent a lot of

time at local libraries,

parks, and fast food

restaurants avoiding

the place where they

stayed but never really

considered home.

Now, they look forward

to the haven of home

after work and school.

Many families are

excited to host gatherings because

they now have the space – and kitchen

appliances that function. Never again will the

oven be used as a heat source.

For others, laundry is no longer a dreaded

chore. Gone are the days of dragging kids to

the laundromat.

The sight and sounds of kids running around

playing, laughing, even screaming-- never

gets old. Kids and their parents relish that

they can frolic in the neighborhood without

the threat of violence and drugs.


moves, unsafe


long days away,

fretting over how

to pay rent, buy

groceries and take

care of the medical

bills. Habitat


removes these

barriers and

empowers families.

When the daily struggle to survive ends,

families thrive.

With your support and through personal

determination and perseverance, families

are empowered to build better futures with

Habitat. Thank you donors and sponsors,

volunteers and advocates, for your role in

this empowering work.

Fast fact:

More than 75%

of our repair clients are

older adults (age 62+).

Home Repair

At age 93, Ms. Emma Aiken (pictured

R) is a mother, a grandmother, a great

grandmother, a great great grandmother

and a great great great grandmother. With

165 family members — hers is one of the

largest African American families in the

area. Family reunions are outdoor affairs

as no one’s home is large enough to host

the entire family! While Asheville is her

home, Emma’s family extends from the

mid-west up into the northeast, down to

Hendersonville and beyond.

Emma moves around well for her age, but

the stairs leading down from the front door

of her West Chapel Road home proved

to be tricky. Our team, accompanied

by Spectrum volunteers, built a 70′

accessibility ramp and did some other

repairs to help ensure Emma can continue

to live safely in the home that holds all of

her family memories.

Twenty Spectrum volunteers spent a

Saturday in the mud building sections of the

ramp, landscaping, and digging holes for

the ramp posts; becoming the largest group

we’ve had on a Home Repair project to date.

Spectrum generously donated their time

and money through the Spectrum Housing

Assist program. Despite the wet weather,

volunteers were eager to work and help


“Since my husband passed I don’t have a lot

of people out here,” Emma said. “So it was

just amazing to see all the volunteers out

here- they came out here to help me.”

impact of your giving

We are grateful to all who have heeded

the call to personally and actively address our

region’s affordable housing crisis by supporting

Asheville Habitat.

As an organization that transcends politics,

race, gender and other things that often divide

us, we unite in the shared vision of a world

where everyone has a decent place to live.

Habitat donors include individuals and families,

varied faith communities, private foundations,

schools, government entities, and a growing list

of local businesses.

Our donors want to do more than write a check.

They also volunteer alongside homeowners,

host events, and participate in celebrations

such as wall raisings and dedications. And they

inspire others to engage in our work by sharing

their experience with family, friends, church

members, and colleagues.

donors and sponsors at ashevillehabitat.org/


Thank you!

1,229 donors gave generously

Everyone can make a meaningful gift and

each gift, regardless of size, helps us buy

and develop land, build houses and repair

homes. And with a 4-star Charity Navigator

rating, you can trust that we will effectively

steward your gift.

I love Habitat because it’s so infectious. You

get to see the tangible impact of their work

as houses go up. Then something really

special happens when you get to know the

families and houses transform into homes.

At that moment you feel called to help others

get involved.

impact of your volunteerism

Nearly 2,000 volunteers built or repaired

homes with us last year. So it’s no wonder

that when people think of volunteering with

Habitat, they think of hammering, sawing,

painting, installing

cabinets and

laying sod.

In the ReStore,

volunteers ring

up purchases at

registers, process


load customer

purchases, and



cabinets. In the


office, the person

greeting you,

answering phones,

and entering data is usually a volunteer. And

many behind-the-scenes committee members

work on policies and procedures and provide

strategic advice.

The value of the 70,000+ volunteer hours

logged at Asheville Habitat last year is

$1,746,101. Impressive! But there is also

intrinsic value in what our volunteers do

outside of their volunteer shift.

Away from the table saws, ReStore registers,

and desktop computers, volunteers are brand

ambassadors, sharing the work of Habitat

with the community.

They routinely recruit

friends to volunteer

and suggest Habitat’s

programs to those in

need of housing. They

write a check when

an appeal arrives in

their mailbox, and

text or email elected

officials when urgent

advocacy action

is needed. This is

because Habitat

volunteers know the

profound impact of a

safe, affordable home

from their first-hand

experience of working alongside families

building better futures with Asheville Habitat.

We are grateful to all who allocate one of life’s

most treasured assets – time – to help build

homes, communities and hope. Whether one

day or one day each week, your gift of time is

Special Feature: Women Build

Women Build is much more than a Habitat house. Retired development officer and

active “WomBAT” Betsy Warren says it best. “It’s power tools, social justice, handson

activism, dancing, laughing, learning, and hundreds of Buncombe County women

coming together for

a common cause.”

Women Build is a

project of Habitat

for Humanity

International that

empowers women

to help families build

My Habitat mortgage payment

is less than half of what I was

paying in rent.

~ Ashley, owner of 2018 Women Build House

strength, stability and independence. Asheville Habitat’s first Women Build House was

completed in 1994. It has been going strong ever since thanks to a team of dedicated

volunteers affectionately known as the “WomBATs” (Women Build Advocacy Team) who

help recruit volunteers and raise funds to build the house.

Noting that women bear the brunt of our

housing crisis, executive director Andy

Barnett, notes, “I am proud that at Habitat

women lead in the solutions, as part of

Women Build and Habitat in general, and from

the construction site to the board room.”

While Women Build is not about excluding

men, it is about including women, offering an

entry point and a comfortable environment

for women to work on a construction site.

Many of our core women volunteers first

engaged with Habitat through Women Build.

2018 Highlights

Nearly 80 community

members attended our

screening of Priced

effects of gentrification

and displacement on

a historically black

community in Portland,

OR. A panel discussion

afterwards with

representatives from

Habitat, Pisgah Legal

Services and Asheville-

Buncombe Community

Land Trust addressed

gentrification, the housing

crisis, and possible

solutions for our local


Habitat staffer Maddy

Alewine and Habitat

homeowner Staci Williams

(pictured above) went to

Raleigh to participate in

Habitat for Humanity’s

Legislative Day. They

learned about affordable

housing policy and

garnered political advice,

wisdom, and knowledge

from elected officials,

lobbyists, the NC Housing

Coalition, and Habitat

International’s Government

Relations team. They also

met with Representative

Susan Fisher who

was moved by Staci’s

description of her journey

to Habitat homeownership.

27 children moved into safe, decent homes

impact beyond Buncombe


$748,910. That’s how much Asheville Habitat

has contributed to Habitat affiliates globally

since 1983. From being a long-term partner

of Habitat for Humanity Guatemala to being

the single largest contributor to the newer

Orphans and Vulnerable Groups Fund

(OVG), Asheville Habitat is a leader in Tithe

for affiliates of our size, serving 210 families

internationally since 1986.

Global Village (GV)

By taking teams of volunteers to build houses

and install Healthy Home Kits, we’ve been

“following our tithe” to Guatemala for many

years now. We are one of 77 Habitat affiliates

engaged in the GV program.

Asheville Habitat volunteer and veteran Global

Village trip participant Bernie Koesters shared,

“50% of families have respiratory illnesses

because they cook in a small space with no

ventilation. In one day, a team of volunteers

builds a smokeless stove and the family’s life

is changed forever. They see a healthier future

for themselves and their children.”

26 households served globally

through our tithe program and

sale of Guatemalan coffee, tea &

handicrafts in the ReStore

In the Mountains of WNC

Not far beyond the Buncombe County border

sits the home of the Alshaer family. Located in

Mars Hill, we built this Habitat home last year

in partnership with Madison County Habitat

for Humanity. This was the third Habitat

home we built as part of the SECU-Habitat

Mountains to the Sea Challenge, a statewide

initiative to build 100 Habitat homes (1 in each

NC county).

ReStore Program

Innovation was at the heart of our newest

initiative to increase global impact. Through

a partnership with Dynamite Roasting Co. we

sell organic Guatemalan coffee in the ReStore,

as well as Guatemalan handicrafts and tea.

Proceeds from all three products go towards

Healthy Home Kits (water filters, smokeless

stoves and sanitary latrines) for Guatemala

coffee farmers. Talk about full circe!


of ReStore

From a volunteer-run Silent Auction to a book and

record “store within a store”, the ReStore is anything

but a typical retail operation. For community members

seeking discount furniture, housewares, appliances,

etc. the ReStore is a beacon of affordability. Thriftstore

aficianados often go home with treasures they

didn’t need but can’t live without; just part of “the thrill

of the hunt”. Folks interested in engaging with their

community, find myriad volunteer opportunities to

make community change -- and friends. And for those

with gently used items to donate, the ReStore makes

it easy by offering free pick-ups within Buncombe

County and a drop-off donation lane open 6 days a

week. A big thanks to all of our ReStore shoppers,

donors and volunteers! Learn more at


We had a substantial pick up

of donated furniture which

required professional handling

to avoid damage to the materials

as well as our home. Your staff

was prompt in their arrival and

extremely careful in handling the

furniture. In addition, they were

excellent ambassadors for the

Habitat mission.

Like most non-profits, Asheville Habitat relies

on funding from individuals, businesses, faith

communities, foundations, and government

entities. Unique to our business model are

the sustainable funding sources-- Habitat

homeowner mortgage payments, home

repair payments, and ReStore proceeds.

Our own revenue streams coupled with

generous community support enable us

to meet ambitious goals year after year.

As we move towards our goal of serving

another 1,000 families in the next decade,

both the continued support of long-existing

partnerships as well as new collaborations

will be essential. We invite you to be part of

this exciting next chapter.

Thank you!
