In response to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, we are suspending all volunteer activities including construction until further notice. We are continually evaluating the current health pandemic and government regulations to keep our volunteers and partner families as safe as possible.
App Builds A Home is a campus-wide partnership with Watauga County Habitat to build safe and affordable homes with local partner families. The students, faculty, staff, and alumni of Appalachian State University are working together to design, fund, and build the home. This October, we will begin construction on our 2nd ABAH home! To learn more about how you can support this project, email firstname.lastname@example.org or keep browsing through our website.
Potter Home Groundbreaking
We had the chance to join Sheila and her grandson to talk to them about her new home! Check out this sweet video to hear from Sheila and to learn a little more about the house itself!
Introducing App Builds a Home's newest partner! Sheila Potter, an Appalachian State University employee, will be the owner of the second ABAH house. Sheila has been an Appalachian State University employee since 2016 and we are excited to be working with her this fall to build her new home. Find out more about Sheila under the "Potter Home" tab above!
ASU Staff Senate has agreed to provide volunteer labor to help build the home beginning this winter, and the ABAH advisory board has a fundraising goal of $40,000 to help pay for the construction of this house.
Due to COVID-19, the build process of Habitat homes across North Carolina will look different. Volunteer groups will be limited in size, and social distancing and face coverings will be required. Regardless, we are thrilled to begin work on a new home for Sheila Potter!
