AGENTS OF CHANGE

“For a community to be whole and healthy, it must be based on people’s love and concern for each other’” - Millard Fuller, Founder of Habitat for Humanity International

Habitat for Humanity is a leader in providing affordable housing to working families in Sarasota, Florida. This organization builds homes and then helps qualified candidates purchase the homes with 0% mortgage interest and extremely affordable payment plans. They have served over 300 families in Sarasota. Habitat Sarasota also manages a used furniture and home improvement store that funds their operational budget allowing all financial gifts to the organization to go directly towards home construction costs. 

As an unrestricted donation to Habitat, this donation will help to fund areas with the most need within the organization. In this case, Executive Director Jay Berman explained that these dollars will go to support Hammock Place, Habitat Sarasota’s newest neighborhood located just outside of the City. This project’s impact on the community will include homes for 40+ income-qualified families providing over 100 children with a safe place to grow up.

 

With the support of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County and the Kolter Group, Habitat SRQ has made incredible strides towards their $7 Million goal to complete the new development. They expect to complete construction of the development by the end of 2021.

More about Hammock Place:

The curved streets, gated entry, and architectural design of this 40-home neighborhood makes it a desirable place to live while addressing the need for affordable housing in Sarasota. The neighborhood is deed restricted, includes lawn maintenance, and the homes will be built using cutting edge construction methods that exceed green building standards. Living just 10 minutes from downtown Sarasota, our homeowners will have quicker commutes, giving them more time with their families. And thanks to Habitat Sarasota’s proven model, the homes are a permanent, affordable housing solution for qualified families.

Catalist Realty is proud to be a local partner and supporter of unrestricted donations for any and all non-profits. Special thank you to McCullough Legal Services for handling the closing of this transaction and contributing a portion of the closing fee to the cause as well!
