wuft's greater good: habitat for humanity of marion county
Thank you to WUFT Media for creating this wonderful video,
and showing what the Habitat Ocala mission is all about!
come build with us
Habitat for Humanity is a volunteer driven organization. We depend heavily on a strong volunteer base to help with the construction of our homes. Simply put, Habitat would not exist without the help of volunteers.
Our volunteers may come from all over, but they are brought together by a love for their community, and a passion for the Habitat mission. I would suggest to anyone that they come out and volunteer with us at a job site. There’s nothing more rewarding than being at a House Blessing, and witnessing that family receive their keys for the first time, knowing that you helped work on their home.
every child needs a place to call home
Every child needs a place where they can grow up healthy, learn and be safe. Single parents, dual-parents, adult children caring for their older parents, and many other families in Marion County partner with Habitat for Humanity to buy an affordable house and create stability for their families. Even though they come from many different walks of life, they are all striving for a similar goal – helping their children have a brighter and better future.
Buying a Habitat house doesn’t just mean stability today; it means stability for the future and reaching new goals for the families and their children. This stability is reached through affordable homeownership. Habitat homes provide children with a foundation on which to build a strong future. Families, and children in particular, are greatly impacted by the place where they live. We believe children who live in a healthy, stable home are more likely to be physically healthier and achieve higher educational outcomes.
Here at Habitat for Humanity of Marion County, we like to stay busy! We put on events throughout the year including our STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL &
We also throw a FISHING TOURNAMENT every year, a CONCERT...oh and we also help run concessions at the PRO RODEO. Did we mention that the funds we make from these events go towards building homes for families right here in Marion County?!
