Hanover Habitat for Humanity is an interfaith nonprofit Christian organization, committed in partnership with qualified families and community volunteers to create and sell homes with no-profit mortgages.

Top Five Accomplishments:
1.  A Partnership with USDA to help fund housing construction.
2.  A commitment to "going green" by building all homes to EarthCraft  certification standards.  This makes Habitat homes 27% more energy efficient and translates into savings that homeowners can invest in other ways to improve their lives and our communities.
3.  An improved selection process for prospective homeowners and a partnership with other organizations to assist homeowners with credit issues and to teach home maintenance and repair. 
4.  In 2014, we began the construction of our first neighborhood development, Bailey Woods!
5.  Built six homes in FY 2013 and are on track to build eight homes in FY 2014!
Top Five Goals:
1.  Organizational capacity building, to include the ReStore, Finance, Board Development and Fund Development.
2.  Enhance our Public Relations and Marketing efforts.
3.  Enhance relationships with stakeholders, in particular churches and local government.
4.  Improve donor recognition, including a donor and volunteer recognition event.
5.  Build at least eight homes during the Fiscal Year 2014 and secure land needed for additional home construction in future years. 
1.  We are working to identify our next property on which to build. Whether it is a ½ acre or 10 acres suitable for a subdivision, we would love to hear from you. If you own land you wish to donate, sell, or know of land parcels to recommend, please contact Hanover Habitat for Humanity.
2.  The Hanover Habitat for Humanity ReStore always needs donations of new or gently used household and construction materials.  Proceeds from the ReStore cover 72% of our administrative costs and helps us to have the capacity to build more homes.
3.  We need help finding qualified Partner Families.  Applicants must have lived in Hanover for at least one year; make between $28k - $45k per year; have reasonable credit; pay rent in excess of $750 per month or live in overcrowded or unsafe conditions; and be willing to partner with Hanover Habitat and complete "sweat equity" hours.
4.  We need volunteers for our Can Recycling Program, the office, and our Committees.
Motivated by Christian ideals of helping their neighbors, a group of County citizens founded Hanover Habitat for Humanity in 1990. We offer a “hand up” not a “hand out” to our homeowners who are hardworking families who through no fault of their own struggle to make ends meet. It is a proven fact that homeownership has a significant impact on net worth, educational achievement, civic participation, health, and an overall quality of life. Affordable and responsible homeownership builds brighter futures, stronger families and a stronger Hanover community.

In partnership with churches, businesses, local government and other nonprofit organizations, Hanover Habitat coordinates the resources of the community to purchase and develop land and build safe, affordable homes.  Since our establishment in 1990 we have completed 50 homes.

CEO Statement
Dear Friends,
In January of 2008, I accepted the position of Executive Director of Hanover Habitat for Humanity.  As you know, that same year the economy took a significant turn for the worse.  Surprisingly, this created an amazing opportunity for us to partner with the United States Department of Agriculture's Rural Development Program (USDA).  USDA has been quietly helping low-income, rural families in Hanover purchase homes for the past 70 years.  Their mission is remarkably similar to ours.  We developed a positive colloborative relationship and together, we have provided funding and construction for homes that otherwise would never have been possible in this tough economy.
The rough economy has also created a new type of clientele for us.  The media refers to them as the "new poor".  They own cars, earn paychecks, pay taxes, and have good credit.  We all know someone like this:  scraping by, paycheck to paycheck.  The "near poor" are families that can also benefit from a hand-up, not a hand-out.  These families are our future, and include college graduates, young health professionals, local government employees and others with job skills pinched by the current economy.  We are reaching out these potential clients to help them purchase affordable homes that will increase in value and allow them to grow into the Middle Class.
We also still assist the low-income, Hanover families that we have traditionally served.  Most recently, we partnered with a family made up of a disabled 53 year-old man and his sister, who has devoted her life to his care.  They were living in a severely substandard home.  We were able to collaborate with another nonprofit organization to complete a new home for them.  Through this collaboration and the overwhelming support of the Hanover community, we were able to subsidize their mortgage to make it affordable.
We hope that you will consider supporting our efforts as we continue to grow and offer innovative solutions to serve the people of Hanover County.
In faith and partnership,
Tim Bowring
