Builders Blitz 2022

The support and generosity of local builders forever change homeowners’ lives during Builders Blitz.

During this event, homeowners watch as local builders, along with their vendors and partners, construct their home in just five days.

This year, five builders have partnered with us to build six homes!

This incredible event will bring another special week of community from Feb. 7-11, 2022, at Habitat Orlando & Osceola’s Silver Pines Pointe neighborhood.

Thank you to our 2022 builders: Jack Jennings & Sons, Park Square Homes, PCL Construction, Pulte Homes and Walker & Company. These companies, along with their subcontractors and vendors, will donate the cost of building a home. Special thanks to Pulte Homes, which will build two homes at this year’s event.

Meet our 2022 homeowners

This year’s Blitz will change the lives of six Central Florida families! Here are their stories.

Daniel & Oriana

Builder: PCL Construction

The newlyweds are excited to be on the Blitz build site as their home rises from a dirt lot and to thank their builder and contractors.

“They are planting in good soil,” Daniel said. “They are making a massive difference in our family’s life and the community. It’s something as close to a miracle as can be.”

Maria & Desmon

Builder: Pulte Homes

A terrible car crash, heart failure, and a miracle gave Maria and Desmon the most grateful hearts. And now, they have overcome yet another obstacle — escaping an unsafe and unhealthy living situation to purchase their own home.

“We cannot believe that our dreams are about to become a reality,” Desmon said.

Wonda

Builder: Pulte Homes

When Wonda reflects on her past and all the obstacles she has overcome, she can hardly believe that she is about to achieve her lifelong dream of owning a home.

“It’s so exciting and is a huge relief to finally have something that is my own,” Wonda said. “After all these years, I will have a stable place for my son when he visits me from college. I’m so thankful!”

Neicoya

Builder: Park Square Homes

A few years ago, Neicoya moved to Orlando for specialized medical care after a car accident and has been seeking a lifelong home here ever since.

“Home is something I always wanted as a kid but didn’t necessarily get. Home to me means everything. It means that I have a reliable place to return to every day. Something I own and worked for,” she said.

Jessica

Builder: Jack Jennings & Sons

For Jessica, homeownership lays the groundwork for achieving goals in all areas of her life.

“I believe 100 percent that my home will help me create the future I want,” she said. “My home will be a safe space to create my own world, have my own energy to think freely and creatively, and accomplish my goals.”

Naomi

Builder: Walker & Company

Naomi was so desperate to move her three children away from their unsafe neighborhood that she lost $5,000 trying to buy a house through a predatory real estate dealer.

“I wanted a place where my children don’t have to worry about violence, loud music day and night, where the walls are hollow and vibrate and there’s always something bad going on,” she said.

Thank you to our 2022 builders:

Walker & Company

They will build their 5th house for Habitat.

Park Square Homes

They will build their 8th house for Habitat.

Pulte Homes

They will build their 7th and 8th houses for Habitat.
