As long-time residents of Asheville, Mosaic agents and employees make it their mission to work with and support the outstanding area organizations that advocate for the vitality and health of our local and global community. To that end, a team of 15 Mosaic employees recently came together to work on an Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity job site. The project in New Heights – a multi-generational neighborhood located 6 miles from downtown Asheville – marks an exciting return to group volunteerism for Mosaic, and reinforces the firm’s mission to give back to the Asheville community through volunteer projects.
Asheville’s New Heights neighborhood
Habitat for Humanity’s New Heights neighborhood, located off Old Haywood Road, includes single-family homes, two-story townhomes, and single-level townhomes specifically designed for aging adults (55+). The neighborhood will be accessible to people in all stages of life and offer a place for 98 households of all ages and backgrounds to build strong, stable futures.
Construction will be broken into two phases. Phase 1 will include the construction of 38 homes. The first home began in spring of 2020 and the last one will close in 2023. Eight of these homes will be single-level townhomes specifically for aging adults.
Volunteer opportunities for all
If you’re looking for a meaningful way to contribute your time within the Asheville community, Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity has construction and home repair volunteer opportunities for both individuals and groups. No prior experience is required; volunteers work alongside experienced construction staff during full day shifts, available year round Monday-Saturday.
Depending on the stage of new construction, volunteers can expect to: frame floors and walls, set trusses and raise roof ladders, build porches, install windows and doors, paint and stain, install cabinets, trim and flooring, stucco, and landscape. As a home repair volunteer, your tasks may include exterior painting, landscaping, building handicap-accessible ramps, and more.
