More than a dozen faith communities are working with Habitat for Humanity to address the housing crisis in Charlottesville.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville hosted its third annual “Building on Faith” breakfast on Friday morning at Congregation Beth Israel. 

The president of the nonprofit said this was a chance for the community to learn how to grow together and address the city’s need for more than 1,600 housing units.

“We know that collectively we can’t build our way out of this, so we’re going to have to find other approaches to work with families to bring them into the community and help them develop pathways to better housing opportunities,” said Dan Rosenweig, president of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville.

Habitat said that Friday was the largest gathering for the annual breakfast and hopes to build more partnerships from it.
