"Habitat and the Land Trust are also helping these families learn skills for responsible homeownership."
Shouldn't that have been the first step before they gave them a home?

The concept of HFH is a kind one .
I don't agree with "one" single person and a complete house dedicated .
I would prefer they build small multifamily communities , spread the wealth and kindness out . Start smaller , and have them show responsibility and then move up as they help the next family coming along . You don't own the first one , you are the caretaker for like 5 years . Help the next family behind you and you get to move on . Turn the place into a dump like many of the HFH houses and your ass hits the street .
Make it a step building and learning process and stop using up so much land and resources for one family or a single person.
Less is more , reclaimed materials are better and have more character. Could have easily built this lady the same Square footage , energy efficient with a small rental unit in it to pay the utilities and taxes to start and show her how to get some sustainable income .
There are about 5 HFH houses in Staunton built about 15 years ago . Looks like Detroit.
Multi-family and responsibility , spread the love around and out . Think smaller= grow bigger

Do you support HFH by volunteering or by giving contributions?

I used to . I also used to redirect 10 of thousands worth of new materials and exterior products to HFH, not out of my pocket but I had the choice of who got the products . I helped build two . One in 1999 and one in 2004. Both of those look like Sanford and Sons moved into them today .
