Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Miami Habitat seeks to revitalize struggling neighborhoods in Miami-Dade County via affordable home ownership opportunities for low-income residents. Adding to the difficulty of low wages for the working poor, south Florida fosters an aggressive, cash-oriented real estate market that makes it almost impossible for these families to break the cycle of poverty. Therefore the affordable homes built in partnership with Habitat allows them the opportunity to earn equity in a property of their own and help improve life on virtually all fronts. It is well known that owning one’s home fosters stability not only for the family, but also for the surrounding neighborhood as often transient renters are transformed into engaged stakeholders that work to improve the quality of life in their community. Miami Habitat brings together a diverse group of partners that join forces to achieve a common goal -- building stronger communities in Miami-Dade County’s neediest areas.

Charting impact

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

Through it's unique business model, Miami Habitat provides an opportunity for low-income people to help build, and then purchase their own affordable home.

In order to qualify for a Habitat home, a family must have a steady income but fall at or below 80% of Area Median Income. Once accepted into the program, owners will not only be purchasing the home using an interest-free loan that Habitat provides, but they must also provide a minimum 250 "sweat equity" hours in which they help build Habitat homes, including their own. In this way, the organization is helping create a sense of community and fellowship among program families as they make this life-transforming journey together. Lastly, they participate in Homeowner Education Workshops that prepare them for a new role.

No other single-family home builder or non-profit housing organization in Miami-Dade County has this combination of volunteer workforce, staff expertise, and funding that can reverse the crisis of poverty housing.

Miami Habitat has been achieving the renewal of the county’s neediest communities through the coordinated efforts of engaged individuals and the investment of the local corporate, civic and faith communities. The specific objectives of the organization’s programs includes: 1) building new homes on acquired lots, 2) providing program partner families with the necessary knowledge to be successful first time homeowners, and 3) when feasible, completing exterior paint and landscape improvement for owner-occupied “non-Habitat” low income homes through the A Brush With Kindness campaign.

The organization continues to partner with a wide array of individuals and entities in order to fulfill its mission. These partners act as both volunteer construction crews as well as highly-valued funding sources. Through grants, bequests, Team Builds, individual donations, fundraising events, and proceeds from the ReStore, Miami Habitat is able to continue building quality affordable housing for those families in Miami-Dade county that need it the most.

Miami Habitat's construction crew builds 5 days per week, all year round, with the help of volunteers and partner families. Construction is managed by a full time Habitat staff that includes a Director of Construction Services, Manager of Construction, and Construction Site Supervisors. The administrative office include Chief Executive, Chief Development and Chief Operations Officers that oversee various staff in fundraising, family services, accounting, and other functions.

Miami Habitat began in 1989 as a small group of volunteers in the Perrine neighborhood of south Miami-Dade by building 14 affordable homes. Since that time, the organization has been working tirelessly to provide homes for families in the program. Organizational Highlights include:

* Jordon Commons - the 2nd-largest Habitat community in the U.S. Located in the Princeton area of south Miami-Dade, it features 187 single-
family homes with a community center and several green spaces.
* In 2010, awarded a 3-year, $11million grant from HUD. This allowed the organization to ramp up its Liberty City Shine initiative in Miami's
urban core by building 114 new and refurbishing 40 foreclosed single-family homes. The initiative continues to this day.
* On November 7, 2015 - Miami Habitat's 1,000th home was dedicated.
* 2018 - Habitat Landings is completed. This South Miami Heights community features 65 new single-family homes.
*2020 - The organization continues to build affordable homes for families in the program, albeit without the help of volunteers due to the ongoing Covid pandemic.
*2021 - 9.5 acres of land are acquired in south Miami-Dade County, assuring the future of the new Habitat Acres community where townhome and villa residential units will be constructed over the next several years.
* 2024 - The projected launch of the Habitat Acres community.
