What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Alachua Habitat for Humanity's work addresses the lack of safe, affordable housing in our community.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

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


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

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

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Charting impact

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

Our goals include:
- To become the most engaged, efficient, effective, and exciting Habitat affiliate per capita in the United States.
- Increase the capacity of homes built in a year
- Increase the number of volunteers that participate on our builds
- Increase the number of volunteer hours that participate on our builds

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 175 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 175 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.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
