Nonprofits in Northwest Arkansas encourage donors to rock, walk, ride to benefit others

Brandon Swoboda, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Washington County, speaks to a crowd gathered Thursday, Feb. 16, 2023, for a groundbreaking ceremony in Fayetteville. The house is the 59th house built by the organization and will be home to Lindsey Peterson and her children, Desmond and Alexis. Habitat for Humanity partnered with Partners for Better Housing to build the home in the 81-home, mixed-income Willow Bend neighborhood. The neighborhood uses a shared equity program to make a third of the homes affordable to lower-income families. Habitat for Humanity uses a model that involves prospective homebuyers putting in more than 300 hours of work, known as sweat equity. Visit for today's photo gallery.
