Cantonment Improvement Committee

Pensacola Habitat for Humanity has had a long and productive history working with residents of Cantonment, who organized to form the Cantonment Improvement Committee (CIC) in 2012. The CIC is made up of residents and businesses in Cantonment who partner with local residents, community and civic groups, government agencies, and businesses to work towards making a safer, healthier community where all residents have access to economic and professional advancement.

Last year, Pensacola Habitat worked with the CIC to bring a Community Resource Center to Carver Park in Cantonment, as well as carrying out multiple beautification and rehabilitation projects in the community.
