Music Builds Houses and Neighborhoods
Warren Haynes Presents: The Annual Christmas Jam has benefited Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity since the mid 1990’s. Proceeds from last year’s Jam brought the year-to-date total to more than $2 million! The funds have been used to build 36 Habitat homes and to help pay infrastructure and development costs for entire Habitat neighborhoods. The most recent neighborhood, Hudson Hills, is home to the 2014 Xmas Jam House and 2015 Xmas Jam House. The name was selected by Warren Haynes and his wife Stefani Scamardo and honors their young son, Hudson. And with Warren’s blessing, we named the street into the subdivision Soulshine Court after one of his most beloved songs, Soulshine.
This year, we will be building 2 more houses with proceeds from last year’s Jam. The houses will be in Habitat’s new 10-house McKinley subdivision in the Shiloh community. Stay tuned to meet the future homeowners.
Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity is eternally grateful for the financial support and the awareness that the Christmas Jam brings to our affiliate and the families we serve. Please support the benefit concert that does so much for Asheville Area Habitat, local families, and the community at large.

“I come home each day through the street filled with smiling children on bikes, playing on the sidewalks and shooting baskets through hoops. I come home to people visiting and sharing and laughing and smiling on their porches or walking their babies or puppy dogs. I come home to a sanctuary. A place filled with so much love. Hudson Hills Soulshine.”
