The FlyLady and her fans have stepped up to do their part in ending poverty housing conditions in Transylvania, NC. Their goal is to construct 1 new, affordable, decent house for a family in the area. Become a part of this transformative event! Help them give a hand up, not a hand out, to families in need.
It is the philosophy of Transylvania Habitat for Humanity to provide housing for the needy in Transylvania County through home ownership financed by no interest mortgages reflecting the actual costs of construction. Housing provided should be simple in design yet adequate for the needs of the family. All plans, materials, equipment, appliances, fixtures, etc., should be of standard (medium, moderate, middle) grade.
Since its inception in 1984 in Transylvania County, 54 homes have been built, with the 55th nearing completion. Help us build!
