Barbi Moon-Theado (left) and Laura K. Knowles (right) of Staunton-Augusta-Waynesboro Habitat for Humanity have completed the required coursework and testing this fall through the Virginia Association of Housing Counselors to achieve the status of Certified Housing Counselor.
The training strengthens the housing counseling profession by assuring that low and moderate income families and individuals are offered the opportunity to live in safe, decent and affordable housing. Both Knowles and Moon-Theado work with families applying to the Habitat program, helping them through the application process.
