FLUVANNA COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) -

The group Impact Virginia is partnering with the Fluvanna County Chapter of Habitat for Humanity to work on 11 different homes in the coming days. This project is bringing 200 teens from around the commonwealth to the county.

Coordinator for Impact Virginia, Glenn Maddox says the people they serve typically can't make those repairs themselves because of physical disabilities or financial hardship. "Our goal when we go into an area is to identify people who are in need, and our goal is to ensure that people are safe, warm, and dry, so we find people who need a repair to their home."

Groups will head out to the 11 sites at 8 a.m. Monday to begin work. They expect to be finished by Saturday.
