The Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation has awarded a $42,700.00 grant to Housing Partnership Inc. for “Ramps United.” The “Ramps United” project is a joint project between two partner agencies of the United Way of the Virginia Peninsula (UWVP): House Partnerships, Inc., and Gloucester Housing Partnership. The $42,700 will pay for approximately 12 handicap ramps to be constructed to assist those with disabilities in accessing their home. The entire project serves disadvantaged and disabled individuals who are at or below the poverty level and have the medical necessity for a handicap ramp on their home. Ramps will be built in Gloucester County, James City County, Poquoson, Williamsburg, and York County.
After growing up in Gloucester, Hunter earned her Bachelors Degree from Roanoke College where she studied Sociology and Psychology. She quickly returned to the Middle Peninsula, an important move, she said, to work in human services in her hometown.
The mission of the Gloucester Housing Partnership (GHP) is clear: help keep Gloucester residents warm, SAFE and dry in their homes.
In 2017, GHP completed projects for 31 qualified residents whose homes required critical repairs. That meant building ramps to reach front doors, repairing roofs to prevent rain from entering homes, completing plumbing projects to ensure families had access to water, and so much more.
Calling all electricians, plumbers, framers, construction foremen, project supers, flooring installers, HVAC technicians, and any other skilled laborers who want to help keep residents in Gloucester warm, safe and dry in their homes!
The Gloucester Housing Partnership continues to get more and more requests from the community for help and skilled volunteers are needed to give of whatever time they can, up to a few hours a week.

Gloucester Housing Partnership Celebrates 25th Year of Service to the Community
Making homes warm, safe, dry and accessible for low-income, elderly or disabled homeowners in Gloucester County…at no cost to them. That’s the mission of the Gloucester Housing Partnership, Inc. (GHP) and has been since founded in 1992.
“By providing low-income residents with needed home repairs to keep them safe, warm and dry, we believe we are helping to prevent homelessness in our community,” said GHP Board Chairman Chip Roady. “We’re able to do that thanks to the support of this community.”
