Mission: MISSION STATEMENT
Putting faith into action, Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County promotes family stability by providing innovative and affordable housing solutions to qualified individuals and families. In partnership with our community, we work toward our ultimate goal of eliminating substandard housing throughout the county.
We believe that reducing the financial burden of housing promotes family stability which, in turn, leads to thriving, vibrant communities.
To continue to create and retain affordable housing in Pinellas County, we will focus on diversifying the scope of our programs to include new and innovative construction and finance models.
We are further committed to increasing our partnership initiatives with government and private resources to lead the effort to address the future housing, social and economic needs of our community.
Results: More than 250 homes constructed since 1985. After building 100 safe, affordable homes in 18 yearsI, we doubled capacity, building the next 100 in just 7 years. We are well on track to reach our 300th house in just 4 years.
Target demographics: Struggling, low-income households in our community needing permanent, affordable housing. Qualified home owner candidates make less than 80% of area median income.
Direct beneficiaries per year: Approximately 25 households.
I love the whole concept behind the ReStore, from an environmental standpoint (recycling!), and the fact that the proceeds go to help build Habitat homes just makes it that much better. We are completely renovating our home, therefore we shop often and also donate when we can. The staff is always very nice, friendly, and helpful. I have been to numerous ReStores in the greater Tampa Bay area, and discovered that the Clearwater one is very large, clean, and organized in comparison to most others. Keep up the good work! You really are changing lives with the work that you do.
