Since 1992, Habitat for Humanity South Sarasota has built 143 single-family houses in our region for families who qualify for the program. Habitat is currently building eight homes this year. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat’s goal has been to build or renovate safe, decent, affordable, energy efficient homes for those in need in south Sarasota County, FL. They educate their homeowners so that they may succeed in home-ownership and pass their newly acquired knowledge onto the next generation. Partner families are required to make a down payment and must contribute 300 hours of “sweat equity” labor to help build or renovate their new home and homes of other partner families. The houses are then sold to the partner families at no profit, financed with affordable, no-interest loans.
Habitat for Humanity South Sarasota County, Inc. is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operating on Christian principles that seeks to put God's love into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
Habitat SSC is primarily a volunteer organization, and we rely on people and businesses, like you, to help families in need to realize the dream of owning an affordable home. From our construction sites to our Habitat ReStore, as well as corporate office needs, special events, committee work, we rely on volunteers in every facet of our organization.
Join us on January 10th, 2020 for our annual fundraiser ‘A Night at the Speakeasy’, 6:30 p.m. at the Plantation Golf & Country Club. We currently are looking for sponsorships and silent auction items.
If you would like to volunteer or donate to Habitat SSC please contact Emily at 941-493-6606 or firstname.lastname@example.org
