Builders Blitz 2022: That's a wrap!

This extraordinary week of building culminated on Saturday with a touching Closing Ceremony, where our five builders presented the keys to our six new homeowner families. You can watch this powerful 45-minute event on our Facebook page.
Here are some photos, leading off with our Builders Blitz Class of 2022 "silly" photo including homeowners, builders, inspectors and Habitat staff.

Next up: Women Build 2022

This March, we celebrate International Women's Day and Women's History Month with our annual Women Build. It's a fundraising event and movement of women building, investing, and advocating for quality, affordable housing in our community.

We still have several build days open in March, so if you are interested in fundraising, volunteering and bringing hope and stability to families like Xiomara's, contact Mary Alice Fish at mfish@habitatorlandoosceola.org.

We're building in Holden Heights!

We are now taking applications for Habitat homes in Holden Heights, located just minutes from downtown Orlando and SODO. With limited availability and three- and four-bedroom floor plans, Holden Heights offers its residents the option to customize their new home to their own needs. Learn more about this opportunity on our AffordableHomesOrlando.org website.

Supporter Spotlight:

Builders Blitz Subcontractors & Vendors
We extend a special thanks to the dozens of subcontractors and vendors who worked with Pulte Homes, Jack Jennings & Sons, PCL Construction, Park Square Homes and Walker & Company last week. 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!

Closing time

Congratulations to Ruthie and son Billy, who closed on their Habitat home in Silver Pines Pointe earlier this month! Ruthie is looking forward to having less stress and more stability in their lives. She said home means "peace of mind." Pictured below from left are Billy, Ruthie and Greg Allen-Anderson, our chief program officer, at Near North Title Group.

Monthly Milestone: 2019

As we look back on our 35th anniversary, we think about all of the great things we have accomplished thanks to the support of our community. It was only three years ago that we broke ground on our fourth planned community: Silver Pines Pointe. Located in Orlando's Pine Hills, this community will consist of 58 homes when it's completed next year.
