Building Rutherford: 2011-14

The original Building Rutherford campaign was the operational focus of Rutherford County Habitat for Humanity for 2011-2014. Over this 4 year initiative, RCHFH partnered with numerous businesses, churches, and community groups in Rutherford County and built 24 new Habitat homes! The impact was great and neighborhoods were revitalized, many saved from great deterioration and abandonment.
