" To be true to ourselves, we must be true to others."
PRES. JIMMY CARTER
Clay County Habitat for Humanity has had to react to economic factors just as everyone else has had to. We’ve been operating from a bare-bones budget for the past year, but this year, sadly, we had to make some staff reductions. Anyone who knows us knows we are a tight-knit family and while this was a tough decision, it was the only decision to keep us sustainable in continuing with our mission of providing affordable housing.
Burnett Estates, our 12-home neighborhood slated for Green Cove Springs, has been a challenge as well. We faced unexpected expenses with the need for more soil on the development, and we have tabled the project for now as we assess how best to move forward.
There are positive opportunities for us to focus on – HFHI has created the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative, which provides each affiliate with more programs to assist even more families, and to impact entire neighborhoods where previously we may only have built a few homes here and there. You can read more about these exciting opportunities here.
As always, if you’d like to know more about what we’re doing, how we’re doing it, how you may help – please know that I’m accessible and happy to chat. Each of us here at CCHH is proud of the work we accomplish. Thank you for your interest and support.
