For the 2018 "Inspire Giving through You" initiative One Island Park and Florida Corporate Office will be assisting Habitat for Humanity in building a new home for a family. 




Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit housing organization working locally and in nearly 1,400 communities across the United States and in approximately 70 countries around the world. Habitat’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Habitat works toward this vision by building and improving homes in partnership with individuals and families in need of a decent and affordable place to live.


Habitat For Humanity has volunteer opportunities along with ReStores that take donations on new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, building materials and more. If you are unable to volunteer and would like to make a donation directly to Habitat for Humanity click here.

Our number one goal is to work together inspiring others through the act of giving back our time, support efforts, accessible resources, goods and services.  Please contact us for further information.
