Help With Housing Gets Grant

Help With Housing, Inc. has been selected to receive a grant of $8,000 from the Shenandoah Community Foundation, Woodstock, VA.   The grant will be used to assist low-income homeowners in Shenandoah County with emergency home repairs and accessibility modifications.  HWH has assisted low-income residents in the Northern Shenandoah Valley for 24 years and is located at 301 Josephine Street in Berryville, Virginia.

Help With Housing was one of 23 non-profit organizations which requested more than $136,000.  This is the second year HWH has been funded by the Shenandoah Community Foundation.  HWH hopes to assist at least 20 clients inrep airs to their homes with the money.  Many of the clients served are elderly, disabled or both and live on very low, fixed incomes.
