Fauquier Habitat for Humanity’s major plans for the Haiti Street neighborhood in Warrenton will be discussed during a meeting Tuesday, Jan. 21.
Fauquier Habitat for Humanity leaders will discuss revitalization work in the Haiti Street/Eva Walker Park neighborhood Tuesday, Jan. 21, in Warrenton.

The meeting, an “open community conversation,” will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Warrenton-Fauquier Visitor Center at 33 Calhoun St.

Habitat has contracted HDAdvisors, a housing and community development consulting firm, to lead these conversations.

Fauquier Habitat also soon will begin building another home in the Town of Remington. The organization will host an applicant information session Wednesday, Jan. 29, at the PATH Foundation, 321 Walker Drive, Warrenton.

To reserve a spot, register at or call 540-341-4952.

Qualified Habitat homeowners:

• Need better housing.

• Willingly partner with the organization.

• Have the ability to pay an affordable mortgage.

• Have lived, worked or attended school in Fauquier or Rappahannock County for at least a year

• Meet annual income requirements, which range from a minimum of $25,500 for an individual to a maximum of $96,120 for a family of eight.

The application process takes an average of three to four months, and the typical time frame between approval for homeownership and purchase of a home ranges from 18 to 24 months. Monthly mortgages remain affordable – at or below 30 percent of household income.

An affiliate of the international organization, Fauquier Habitat for Humanity has helped families build strength, stability and self-reliance in Fauquier and Rappahannock counties since 1991. It has built or rehabilitated 55 homes, meaning almost 200 individuals have decent places to live.
