What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Homeownership

Our homeownership program
empowers qualifying families in
Alachua County to build and buy their
own homes. We partner with families
to construct safe, affordable
housing through new construction or
rehabilitation. Habitat homeowners
help build their own homes alongside
volunteers, and pay an affordable
mortgage. Before building their own home,
Habitat homeowners commit to 200 hours
of sweat equity by serving the community
through community service hours, and by
helping build another Habitat homeowner
family’s home. All homeowner families
complete a series of workshops, which are
designed to empower families to become
successful homeowners.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
Families

In the spirit of Habitat for Humanity’s
vision of a world where everyone has
a decent place to live, Alachua Habitat
for Humanity’s Critical Home Repair
program addresses unsafe, severely
inadequate living conditions and
enables families to stay in their homes.
In addition to improving quality of life
for families, the Critical Home Repair
program supports the economic and
cultural vibrancy of the community and
preserves local affordable housing
inventory.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) is an
exterior home preservation program
for eligible homeowners so they can
continue to live in safe, decent homes
for years to come. ABWK is part of
our larger Neighborhood Revitalization
program and is designed to help
revitalize neighborhoods, encourage
connections within communities,
and preserve local affordable
housing inventory.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Neighborhood Revitalization is Habitat for Humanity’s holistic approach that expands upon its partnership with volunteers and new homeowners to also include neighbors and local organizations for an increased impact.

Through this effort, neighborhoods across the United States are revitalized into vibrant, safe and inviting places to live for current and future residents, thanks to the hard work of engaged citizens, partnerships with civic and business groups, and a renewed community spirit.

Neighborhood Revitalization enables us to serve even more families by responding to community aspirations and empowering residents to revive their neighborhoods and enhance their quality of life.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals include:
*Partnering with donors, volunteers, and future Alachua Habitat homeowners to build safe, affordable houses

*Supporting the neighborhood revitalization vision of the Greater Duval neighborhood by completing Critical Home Repair, A Brush With Kindness (exterior paint & landscaping) projects, and partnering with other community and resident-led organizations on programs and projects in the focus neighborhood

Alachua Habitat for Humanity invites people of all backgrounds, races, and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need of affordable housing. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Alachua Habitat has built more than 160 homes in the local community. Habitat houses are sold to homeowner families at no profit and financed with affordable loans.

We have a dedicated and talented Board of Directors and staff with expertise in construction, finance, real estate, direct service, fundraising, and community development. We also have a strong history of financial support from the government and private sectors.

We have built or rehabbed over 160 houses in Alachua County since 1986, and we hope to be able to double the number of families we serve each year through our homeownership program.
