Habitat for Humanity of Walton County


Habitat for Humanity of Walton County

Habitat for Humanity of Walton County, Florida is a 501(c)(3) Christian non-profit that builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of our partner families and the community. Our ministry provides housing opportunities through a helping hand approach and not a hand out.  Each partner family commits 250 hours per adult of sweat equity to assist with construction of their home, improvement/education classes, and assisting with Habitat’s program activities.  The partner family then purchases the completed home with an interest free loan based upon the cost of the completed home with payments calculated according to family income.  Each partner family’s mortgage payments will, in turn, contribute to new homes for other families in the future. 

In addition to partnering in the construction or renovation of decent housing, Habitat operates the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.  The Habitat ReStore accepts donations of new and gently used building materials and household furnishings.  The ReStore sells these goods at a fraction of their retail price and serves as a resource for our local families with its low cost furnishings, appliances, and building items.  Our ReStore allows us to touch even more families and their children in our area.

Habitat is more than just about housing the needy.  It’s an investment in our community’s future.   Together we can make a difference to the lives of the children in the community in which we live and, with simple decent housing, change lives forever.
