What we aim to solve New!

With the cost of housing continuing to rise, finding affordable housing is a constant problem for thousands of Central Florida residents. With the average cost of renting a two-bedroom at more than $1,000 a month, nine out of ten low-income families are unable to find affordable housing. The effects of a lack of affordable housing might not be outwardly visible like other life-altering challenges, but it can be just as stressful and debilitating to a family dealing with its impact. Habitat Orlando & Osceola provides an opportunity and a solution for low-income families and individuals in need of affordable housing in our community. • 43% of households in Orlando and 60% in Osceola County are either in poverty or qualify as ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) • In Orange County, nearly 218,000 people live in poverty. In Osceola County, nearly 309,000 live in poverty. • Almost 72,000 children (under 18) in Orange County and 77,000 in Osceola County live in poverty.
