Habitat for Humanity Holds Block Party to Mark Milestone

Posted: Updated:

Saturday marked the official celebration for 'Phase 1' of Habitat for Humanity's Sunrise Park. Habitat for Humanity hosted a block party at Sunrise on Carlton Avenue in Charlottesville for all of the volunteers and supporters who made the transformation possible.

The project is the first in the nation to transform a mobile home development into a mixed-income residential building.

"We are celebrating the completion of six two family attached units, our community center and condominium," said Caitlin Riopel with Habitat for Humanity.

The next phase will include building market rate homes.
