Habitat for Humanity of Greater Orlando partnered with five builders to build five homes for future Habitat homeowners in just five days February 5-10, 2018. The Builders Blitz started with an airhorn kick-off on Monday, February 5 at 7 a.m. and concluded on Saturday, February 10 at 10 a.m. with a celebratory home dedication ceremony for the five new homeowners.

During the weeklong event, professional builders and subcontractors came together to donate building materials, supplies and the hours of labor to help change the lives of five Central Florida families who will call Arbor Bend home. Arbor Bend is Habitat Greater Orlando’s third planned community which will feature 34 homes upon its completion in 2019.

To pull off the amazing feat of building five homes in five days required the partnership of generous builders, the engagement of all their subcontractors and months of planning and preparation. Participating Builders include HGR Construction, Park Square Homes, PCL Construction, Pulte Homes and Walker & Company.

The need for affordable housing in Central Florida continues to rise while affordable housing options continue to shrink. Building industry professionals understand the importance and impact of having a safe, affordable home. When builders provide the labor, funding and materials, it allows Habitat Greater Orlando to serve even more homeowners. We are grateful for everyone’s generosity in making this week a reality.

Habitat Greater Orlando partners with sponsors, donors and volunteers to build affordable housing, revitalize neighborhoods and strengthen communities. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage, achieving the strength, stability and independence to build a better life for themselves and their families.
