Affordable homeownership: a future we build together
Since 1981, thousands of families have partnered with Pensacola Habitat for Humanity to make their dreams of homeownership a reality.
While ensuring access to affordable homeownership is central to Pensacola Habitat’s mission, it is just one of many ways the organization is working to build communities. Pensacola Habitat for Humanity’s Neighborhood Revitalization efforts improve existing homes and neighborhoods in disenfranchised and underserved communities. Little Free Libraries make literacy accessible in communities where books are a scarce resource. And the ReStore provides a green alternative to the disposal of building supplies and furniture, providing a reselling and revitalizing alternative for people who are conscious of waste.
There are many ways you can help Pensacola Habitat for Humanity. A cash or check donation ensures more of our neighbors are able to invest in their future; volunteer efforts provide the support necessary to develop their homes; and grassroots efforts, be it creating quilts for new homeowners, hosting a bake sale or spreading the message of affordable homeownership through social media, allows the benefits of homeownership to be fully realized.
By giving to Pensacola Habitat, you are not only making a difference in one family’s life - you are investing in our community and making it a better place to live. Thank you for your commitment.
