Founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller, Habitat for Humanity (HFH) started outside of Americus, Georgia. The Fullers along with Clarence Jordan developed the concept of “partnership housing” which centers for those in need of adequate shelter and working side-by-side with volunteers to build decent affordable houses at no profit. Habitat affiliates can provide affordable mortgages to families and then in turn the mortgage are invested in more homes, and the cycle of change keeps moving forward. Habitat is committed to creating homeownership opportunities for under resourced families. They know that when families can become homeowners, the entire community benefits. Habitat now works in all 50 states in the U.S. and in more than 70 countries, and has helped more than 59 million people achieve stability and independence through safe, decent and affordable shelter.
Habitat for Humanity for greater Volusia County was started in 1986 by a small group of local citizens led by Attorney Bernard Strasser. Currently, Habitat is in the process of developing “Legacy Woods” on Flomich Avenue in Daytona Beach. This exciting new project will consist of 32 duplexes and 8 single-family homes located on a 6.5 acres site. It will be a significant response to the affordable housing crisis in our community. OPC has started a fund raising drive to raise $80,000 with the goal of being one of the first
sponsors of these new residences at Legacy Woods. Please mark your calendar for a couple of dates to
welcome 3 guests to worship:
 April 28, 2024- Lori Gillooly, CEO of Halifax Habitat
 May 12, 2024- Rachel Bryant and her daughter, recipients of a Halifax Habit home sponsored by OBPC in 2008
