Habitat for Humanity continues to build homes in blighted areas of Crestview.

CRESTVIEW - With two of the four homes nearing completion, Habitat for Humanity in Okaloosa County broke ground on the remaining two homes that a $200 million grant provided by the Florida State Legislature helped fund. Okaloosa County received $240,000 of that money to build four new homes in Crestview. The grant from the Florida Legislature stipulates that we take down existing "shacks" and build brand new homes.

 

Thanks Cumulus for this great PSA!

HFH Road Trip Crazies Oct 2014

Habitat For Humanity Road Trip Crazies Are Headed Our Way!

This is a group of folks who travel around to various Habitat Affiliates and build homes from slab to sheetrock in three days! Come go crazy with us October 24-26, 2014 as we join with 100 local volunteers per day to complete this house for a single mom and her children. Fill out an application and email it to volunteer@habitatfwb.org or drop it by the office at 802 Pelham Rd, Fort Walton Beach. Donations may also be made through our paypal account.

We have temporarily closed applications for home applicants due to our ongoing construction and the length of our waiting list. Please check back with us at a later date when we will re-open applications to potential new homeowners.
