Habitat for Humanity expands into northern Alabama

LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – Habitat for Humanity of Madison County has a new name and serves a larger area. The organization announced Monday that it will now be called Habitat for Humanity of the River Valley and is expanding its services to Limestone County.

Habitat for Humanity has served the Madison County community for 35 years and has helped 302 local families.

Executive Director Myra Sanderson told News 19 that the nonprofit is eager to get involved in Limestone County communities.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to experience Limestone County,” said Sanderson. “We know there is a need for affordable homeownership in this community, just like in Madison County. We therefore look forward to meeting people who have this need.

Habitat for Humanity works to build affordable, stable homes to help improve the lives of families while eliminating substandard housing.

Jeremy Foulks, the operations manager, told News 19 that the organization is also an opportunity for community members to give back to their neighbours.

“We already know Limestone County has a very charitable community, a community that wants to serve those in need. So now we can put the pieces together, the families in need, Habitat, the community and the resources,” Foulks told News 19.
