Champlain Valley Habitat For Humanity (CVHFH) serves all of Clinton County with the exception of the Town of Black Brook which is provided for by the Ausable Valley HFH. Both Essex and Franklin Counties have been affiliates for the past several years.
|Champlain Valley Habitat for Humanity
was started by a group of interested people in the Plattsburgh and Peru area. After several organizational meetings and with the help of the media, we were able to stir up enough interest to form a chapter here in Clinton County.
To become an affiliate, it was necessary to involve the communities of Clinton County which was accomplished by speaking at churches, village and city board meetings, and soliciting the help of local businesses. Through these initial efforts we now have active partners from Keeseville all the way up to Champlain.
To become a registered affiliate it was necessary to meet the requirements set forth by Habitat For Humanity International. HFHI required proof that a need existed for an affiliate in this area and there was enough energy to sustain it. This was accomplished by selecting a board of sixteen partners and establishing committees such as Family Selection, Family Support, Site Selection, Building, and Finance. We were fortunate to fill these requirements with qualified partners and greatly appreciate their ongoing support.
Our affiliate status was received in February 1999.
