“Our medical rescue and safety professionals are on the front lines of keeping us safe, and as Fauquier Habitat for Humanity’s mission incorporates the belief that all families should live in safe and healthy homes, we must do everything we can for our part to protect those on the front lines of this pandemic so they can maintain the safety and wellness of our community,” said Darryl Neher, Chief Executive Officer of Fauquier Habitat for Humanity.
