Habitat for Humanity plans to build homes in blighted neighborhood

CRESTVIEW - Some blighted areas of Crestview are soon getting a facelift thanks to Habitat Florida and a $200 million grant provided by the Florida State Legislature.

Okaloosa County has received $240,000 of that money to build four new homes in Crestview, but Nitsi Bennett - President and CEO of Habitat for Humanity Okaloosa plans to stretch those funds with additional monies in order to build six homes.

The grant from the Florida Legislature stipulates that we take down existing "shacks" and build brand new homes. We have already purchased properties in poverty stricken areas so that we can help rejuvinate blighted areas that are close to downtown Crestview.

Construction continues in Crestview!

Habitat for Humanity Okaloosa broke ground on two of our Crestview projects in January. As of June, this is the progress we've made thanks to our community and volunteers:Cobb Ave June2014

Lee Ave June 2014

Our 51st home is at 314 E. Cobb Ave., and number 52 is at 807 Lee Ave. With the traditional passing of the hammer, each family accepted their role in participating in the "sweat equity" part of their homeownership.
