Myka speaking to news crew
  • “In 2019, we zeroed in on what we do best — homebuilding, preparing families for homeownership, and creating an unforgettable volunteer experience. That focus helped us scale from an average of 7 homes built per year to now 20 homes in the 2023-24 season. The significant growth we’ve experienced the last few years has allowed us to walk alongside more hard-working Habitat Partner Families on their journey towards homeownership and created more opportunities for community collaboration.”

Ranesha and son, and Myka — Habitat Partner Families

Habitat Partner Families Ranesha and Myka joined Habitat staff, board members, and community partners to help us celebrate the first build of the season. Both families are close to completing their sweat equity requirements and can’t wait to be neighbors later this year!

Most of the 20 Habitat homes built this year will be one of the two new home layouts we introduced in 2022, the Triumph and Victory.

Want to get involved? Volunteer opportunities come in all shapes and sizes! Got an hour to donate lunch? Or, join us on the build site for an 8-hour construction day — we have lots of fun and your time is transformational for families working tirelessly to reach their dream of homeownership.
