Ebony gets her keys at 2022 Home for the Holidays

That's a wrap on our 3rd Home for the Holidays!

Ebony and her family watched her home go from a wooden frame to finished home in just 10 days. Their lives will be forever changed thanks to the generosity of Williams Company, along with their subcontractors, vendors, and partners.
Here's the story of the build in photos:

Thank you, subcontractors, vendors & partners

We extend a special thanks to the subcontractors and vendors who worked with Williams Company to make Home for the Holidays possible. Our builders always tell us it's their subcontractors and vendors who really make Builders Blitz possible. We're so grateful for everyone's help to bring more affordable housing to Central Florida!

Dream job or homeownership?

We've launched a new campaign to raise awareness of the housing crisis

When you ask a child what they want to be when they grow up, you’ll probably hear something like teacher, police officer, mail carrier. But most kids’ dream jobs don’t have high enough salaries to afford the average-priced home. The good news? There's still time to make a change.
That's the basis of our new campaign that aims to raise awareness about the housing crisis and our work to find solutions, and also rally folks to join our mission. To learn more about the campaign and how you can help, check out our campaign page:

From the build site: Holiday Build

December is a busy month on our build sites! We couldn't do it without the support of Team Build sponsors Hilton Grand Vacations, Bank of America, and Orange County Government. Thank you for helping us make homeownership dreams come true!

Homeowners get VIP treatment at 'Hamilton' 

A group of Habitat homeowners and their families got to attend a complimentary performance of "Hamilton" in November thanks to the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts' community giveback initiative. Corporate sponsors, private donors, City of Orlando and Orange County officials joined forces to raise enough money to treat more than 1,200 students, teachers, families, social service groups, first responders, and veterans to the multi-award-winning Broadway musical. Thank you to Dr. Phillips and the donors who made this unforgettable day possible for our homeowner families!

Sponsor spotlight:

PNC Bank

A big thank you to PNC for sponsoring our Financial Education Program! Their generous support will go far to help families understand the financial factors that shape their lives. Because of PNC, more Central Floridians will be empowered with financial literacy know-how and skills. We deeply appreciate their commitment to our community!

... that his dream job won't pay enough for him to afford an average-priced home in Central Florida?

There’s still time to alleviate the housing crisis before our children have to experience it themselves. Support our work to not only build affordable homes, but to work toward long-term solutions to the affordable housing crisis.
