You’re invited to bring a team of volunteers to Florida to work alongside Habitat partner families as they build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter! Habitat for Humanity builds in more than 50 communities statewide in an effort to address Florida’s affordable housing crisis, and we need your help. Nearly half a million Floridians live in households with extreme housing cost burden, spending more than 50% of their income on housing. Through Habitat’s Build Florida! program, we welcome volunteer teams to help alleviate this problem by building safe, decent, affordable shelter in partnership with Florida families.
While you’re here, make the most of all the beaches, theme parks and exciting activities our state has to offer. Before or after your build week, take some time for Disney, fishing, boating, water sports and museums. Explore our fun and friendly cities and towns. We’ll be happy to recommend local activities that suit your interests.
With available destination sites around the state, you can choose a location and time frame that best suits your group’s needs and interests. Your group will have the opportunity to build, rehab, or repair homes. You might also spend a day helping out in a Habitat ReStore. Construction skills are helpful but not necessary; we’ll teach you what you need to know! You’ll have the satisfaction of seeing the tangible results of your work, and the reward of knowing that you’ve supported a family in achieving their goals and improving their lives.
