Here's to the strong women who nailed it this Women's History Month! 👷‍♀️💪

Sending a huge shoutout to the dozens of women who donned hard hats, handled power tools, and hammered away on our build sites during our Women Build events celebrating Women's History Month.
Thank you to the hardworking women – and men – from PCL, Alight, Hilton Grand Vacations, &Barr, Enterprise and Homevestors who donated their time, talent, and treasure last month!

Introducing our new floor plan for the City of Orlando's Parramore community 

The Hickory features a one-car garage and covered porch

Our new Hickory homes will make smart use of a linear floor plan. The kitchen overlooks the dining room area, which leads into the main living area, offering family or guests a cozy gathering space.
For those with more functional priorities, the extra storage options – a linen closet and garage – are also available in this three-bedroom, two-bath home. The Hickory houses come with all the special add-ons of a Habitat Orlando & Osceola home: select appliances, Florida-friendly landscaping, and an energy-efficient design.

Key Moments

Congratulations to our new Habitat homeowners!

Margarita and Richard, our Park Square Homes Blitz 2024 family, celebrated closing on their brand new Habitat home last week. The couple and their two children are excited to have more space to spread out, as well as a stable, affordable place to call their own.
“Achieving homeownership, I believe, will bless my children because they will see that no matter the obstacles they face in life, it doesn’t mean they can’t achieve a goal,” Margarita said.
