CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -

Saturday afternoon, dozens of Habitat homeowners had the opportunity to catch up with the volunteers who helped build their homes.

This Habitat for Humanity event happened at Forest Hills Park in Charlottesville.

Over the years, the organization has built 200 homes for families across the Charlottesville Albemarle area.

The reunion offered activities for families and gave everyone a chance to bond over a common cause. 

“They care. They love everyone and they're family oriented and they don't want to see nobody out or nobody, you know, paying high rent, living in unlivable conditions. And everybody who works for Habitat, everybody that support Habitat, all the people in the community, really believe in what we do,” said Larry Scott, a Habitat homeowner.

Scott also began volunteering for Habitat for Humanity shortly after the organization built his home. 

Habitat for Humanity builds around 20 homes for families living in the Charlottesville Albemarle area each year.
