Warren County Habitat for Humanity, Inc. is excited to announce that Andréa Ross has joined the organization as its new Executive Director. Andréa comes to Habitat with a wealth of experience in single and multi-family home maintenance, repair, and management. She is active in the local Warren-Page NAACP and other community interests.
As a Warren County native and mother of two recent Skyline High School graduates, Andréa cares deeply about our community, its residents, and its future. She is drawn to the Habitat adage that people need “a hand up, not a hand out.”
Andréa’s passion and skills will be a great asset to the organization as it seeks to expand its impact on our community through affordable homeownership and community development programs and advocacy.
Jessica Priest-Cahill, the former executive director, has stepped into a volunteer role as chair of the Resource Development Committee. The WCHFH Board of Directors has appreciated Jessica’s leadership over the past 18 months as the organization navigated Covid related pressures and made organizational and programming changes to better serve its existing clients while expanding its impact on the Front Royal/Warren County community.
Founded locally in 1993, Warren County Habitat for Humanity seeks to build homes, community, and hope in Front Royal and Warren County. Habitat for Humanity homes are sold with no profit received. The homes are built utilizing volunteer labor, donated resources, and money from the community. Homeowners must meet three qualifications: willingness to partner; ability to pay; and have a need for decent, affordable, and safe housing. In addition to the Habitat Homeownership Program, WCHFH provides home repair programs for low-income homeowners, homeownership and home maintenance education, and advocacy for affordable home ownership.
