Mission Statement

Partnering with God and the community, our mission is to eliminate substandard housing in the Jacksonville Beaches. In addition to building quality, affordable homes for qualified families in need at no profit, we also guide our partner families through home ownership and provide educational opportunities so that they may build brighter futures for themselves and their children.

Description

Beaches Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry dedicated to eliminating substandard housing in the Jacksonville Beaches. As an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, we work in partnership with local families and volunteers to build and rehabilitate simple, decent homes for qualified families in need. Recognizing the importance of education in breaking the cycle of poverty, we also offer college scholarships, after-school tutoring and rewards for academic excellence for our partner families.

Beaches Habitat is one of more than 1,700 affiliates in the USA and 550 international affiliates that combined have built more than 350,000 homes throughout the world. Affiliates of Habitat for Humanity International are independent, nonprofit organizations that are organized by local citizens and operate with local boards and local volunteers. Volunteers provide most of the labor, and corporate, faith-based and individual donors provide the money, materials and labor necessary to build Habitat homes. Habitat for Humanity International provides its affiliates with publicity and informational materials. In return, through the Habitat for Humanity Tithe program, Beaches Habitat for Humanity an active participant in Habitat’s global ministry. We are currently supporting Habitat for Humanity Zambia in honor of the late community hero, Dr. Richard Christensen. In years past, we have contributed to Habitat for Humanity affiliates in Nepal, Lesotho, Haiti and Costa Rica.
