$30,000 Community Outreach Initiative

Deerfield is sponsoring eight homes for seniors in Habitat for Humanity’s newest neighborhood, but there is much to be done to support the construction of 98 homes – the largest local Habitat project ever!

The West Asheville site is gorgeous, but has been cleared to make way for new homes, leaving behind great opportunities for a landscape planning project. The new community will also require one central mail/communication kiosk, and eventually a shelter for children waiting on the school bus.

The Board of the Foundation has approved an initiative to raise $30,000 to support landscaping, mail receiving, bus stop waiting…and we will be offering chances to volunteer as construction kicks off!

The first phase will include four of the Deerfield sponsored senior homes – construction on those homes will begin in November.
