President Trump has proposed a new $ 1.1 trillion White House budget, which included a proposed $6 billion reduction in funding for the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). If enacted, this $6 billion reduction in HUD funding would impact millions nation-wide, including families here on the Peninsula and in Greater Williamsburg. Under this proposed budget, it would be nearly impossible for families to obtain affordable housing; meaning families could be forced to spend more on housing at the expense of food, healthcare, and other basic necessities.
HUD funded programs including Home Investment Partnership (HOME), and Self-Help Homeownership Opportunity Program (SHOP), and Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) funds 50% of all Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg home building costs. Many thousands of dollars that have come in over the last few years will be lost if this proposed budget is ratified!
Please consider making a donation to help bridge this gap. Your support is needed and appreciated.
Since our founding in 1985, Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg has afforded more than 250 families the opportunity to become homeowners, has provided critical home repairs to low-income homeowners with the Home Repair Blitz and A Brush with Kindness programs.

Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg cordially invites you to a Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony for Sharnell Warfield and her four children, Jamar, Dominique, Lailonnie, and Isaiah.
This fun and moving ceremony will last less than 30 minutes and is very casual. The ceremony will be held rain or shine, and refreshments will be available afterward.
Sharnell was born and raised in Newport News and has been employed with the City of Newport News Department Of Human Services for the past 5 1/2 years. She is the mother of four beautiful children. Older sons Jamar and Dominque are both in college. Sharnell’s younger daughter Lailonnie is in the 1st grade and son Isaiah is in Kindergarten. Sharnell is very excited to start making memories with her children in their new home!
This Habitat home was generously sponsored and built by Lowe's.
Parking is available on the street.
