Project Request: Habitat for Humanity of Winchester-Frederick-Clarke (HFHWFC) is requesting assistance from the Boy Scouts of America with a small-scale construction project to support our office capital improvement program.


Organizational Involvement:

This project is designed for a Boy Scout Troop or Pack in need of community service. It will require leadership skills, planning, problem solving, and execution of a construction task. For general work, there are no age restrictions on the tasks, excepting any use of power tools would require a minimum age of 18. Recommended age is 16 .


Project Description:

HFHWFC is seeking a team to rebuild the privacy fence at the administrative office. This project will require a) understanding of the fence placement system, b) current damage and reasons for integrity failure, c) determination of materials and tools needed to reposition the fence, d) acquisition of tools and materials, e) step-by-step plan for repair, and f) completion of the project.

Location: 145 Baker Street, Winchester VA, 22601


Timeline: Would like to have the project completed prior to the arrival of winter weather that could hamper, or preclude, completion of the fence repair.


Project timespan: The fence repair itself should be considered a one-day project. Planning and preparation for the project could take several weeks, depending on how much time is available for the Troop or Pack.


Statement of Need: HFHWFC is a non-profit construction company with the mission to assist low-income families with safe and affordable housing solutions, through new home construction, repairs, or community engagement. It is imperative that we also reflect the values and quality we want to be known for in the community. We have a very limited staff, with the primary mission to complete housing projects for our partner families, and thus time and funding resources remains limited to take care of our own home. Having our front office in visible disrepair does not reflect well on Habitat, and we are hopeful we can get assistance in making this much-needed fix, while also offering a project opportunity for an interested Troop or Pack.


If BSA has interest in partnering on this project, or has any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email. Thank you!
