Habitat for Humanity builds strength, security, and self-reliance through shelter.
Green Oaks Row, our newest affordable community in East Winter Garden was finished last year for three Habitat homeowner partners this year. We’re currently building three homes and will launch a new affordable home community, Criswell Court. The next families have been selected and are anxious to work alongside you, our volunteers to build their own home and homes of others. Families qualify for Habitat by demonstrating a housing need (affordability, substandard conditions, overcrowding), their willingness to partner through 200 hours of sweat equity, by attending financial education classes and agreeing to save for a down-payment and to repay a no-interest mortgage. We look forward to building with your team to learn new skills, to make a difference for families and to invest in our community together!
