Monthly Milestone: 2008

As we continue to celebrate our 35th anniversary, we look back to 2008 when the Habitat UCF Chapter was established. This affiliate continues to inspire students to get involved in supporting affordable housing. In 2008, we also broke ground on Stag Horn Villas, a 58-home community in Orlando's Pine Hills neighborhood. Stag Horn Villas is our only owner-managed condominium association community. Each townhome has a multitude of energy-efficient features and is Energy Star® rated.
