Everyone deserves a decent place to live.
Habitat for Humanity is a unique opportunity to impact the lives of others. Working side-by-side with families who are building their own home, and rebuilding their lives, volunteers and donors see tangible results and form powerful relationships. We serve and build in Orange Park, Middleburg, Green Cove Springs, Keystone Heights and Penney Farms. Learn More.
