CROZET, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville got to celebrate two families and the final steps of welcoming them to their new homes this weekend. 

The brand-new townhomes are located in the Old Trail neighborhood in Crozet. Tanjah Wheeler says this home is a fresh beginning after living with her mom on Hardy Drive, and she looks forward to having a place where she feels comfortable letting her son go out and play. 

“We are very, very excited to start living in Old Trail and just to be a part of the community we don’t have to worry about gunshots and bad things going on in the community,” Wheeler said. 

While Habitat for Humanity is focusing on the redevelopment of the Southwood community in Albemarle County, it has also set goals to provide people with opportunities in more rural areas. 

"We made a strategic decision that although we will be building a lot of homes in Southwood in the next 10 to 15 years, we also want to be building at least 15 outside of Southwood," CEO and President Dan Rosensweig said.  

Rosensweig says they are looking to expand and build homes for people in the western and northern parts of Albemarle County, as well as out in Greene and Louisa counties.
