Letter from the President/Executive Director
It's been a tumultuous year for both the construction industry and Central Floridians. At Habitat for Humanity of Greater Orlando Area, we are grateful for the community's support, and we are encouraged by everyone who has given of their precious resources to us during these tough economic times. Together, these contributions have helped to build 15 homes for Central Florida families.
Since the groundbreaking of Stag Horn Villas in 2009 we have completed seven buildings and welcomed 50 families into their new townhomes. We are proud to report that all the finished villas have earned the Energy Star rating. While we still have a long road ahead of us, we look forward to the spring of 2013, when construction on all 10 buildings is slated for completion, and Stag Horn Villas will be home to 58 hard-working and deserving families.
As always, we share our success with the community and local businesses, because everything we accomplish is a direct result of their generosity. We thank the City of Orlando and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta that selected us to receive two grants totaling more than $1.47 million. Stag Horn Villas has received more in-kind donations than any previous Habitat Orlando project, with donors making a three-year commitment to contribute goods and services. And though these financial contributions are paramount to our progress, we could not have made such a difference without the 3,370 volunteers who came onsite to help -- a 25% increase from last year.
We thank our supporters for enabling us to fulfill our mission. And with the continued support of our partners and donors, we look forward to another blessed year at Habitat.
