building back

With your help, Habitat Orlando & Osceola is building back.  

During the immediate effects of COVID-19, Habitat Orlando & Osceola worked hard to keep our partnership promise with our homeowners, therefore helping our community through safe, affordable homeownership.

We are now doubling down on our efforts to build back hope for people who need the foundation of home to build a better future for themselves and their families. We’re building back stability for Central Florida by giving people the tools to be responsible, successful homeowners.

We know that affordable housing can make all the difference to the future of a family. When no longer facing rising rents or eviction threats, families can afford healthier food and medical care, save money, and make other forward looking choices.

Our community also prospers when our neighbors live in safe, affordable homes. Homeownership and safer communities create jobs, revitalize neighborhoods, attract employers, increase consumer spending and government revenues, and lower the risk of foreclosure – all while bringing transformative benefits to families.

Investing in affordable homeownership is one of the wisest community investments possible. It reaps immediate social and economic rewards, and the returns grow with every new generation.

As we begin our 2020-2021 fiscal year, our goals include: 

  • Closing on 26 new, safe and affordable homes in Central Florida 

  • Providing critical home repairs to 110 homes 

  • Partnering with five local builders for our annual Builders Blitz event.  

  • Mentoring 50 potential homeowners through financial counseling.  

  • Reopening homeownership applications 

Meeting these goals will affect the lives of more than 1,000 men, women and children in Central Florida. 

Join us in building back our community. Your support will help make Central Florida stronger through safe, affordable housing.
