Melbourne, FL – Habitat for Humanity’s work to provide affordable housing in Brevard County has helped Habitat for Humanity International rank as the sixth largest homebuilder on Builder magazine’s top 100 list. With 6,032 closings in 2010, this is the second time Habitat for Humanity has placed in the top 10.
“Our placement on the Builder 100 list is a testament to what can be accomplished when people work together,” said Larry Gluth, senior vice president of U.S. and Canada for Habitat for Humanity International. “So many families in the United States and around the world face an incredible need for affordable housing, and this need only increases during challenging economic times. Habitat works every day to help these families, and we are grateful for the generosity of our donors, volunteers and advocates who have joined our efforts to help families obtain safe, decent and affordable homes and to strengthen communities.”
In 2010, Habitat for Humanity of Brevard County, Inc.(Habitat) helped more than 14 families obtain affordable housing and plans to build 20 additional houses this year. Since 1985, the affiliate has provided more than 270 opportunities for simple, decent and affordable housing with families and individuals in need throughout our community.
“We are thrilled that our work to provide affordable housing has contributed to Habitat’s ranking as the sixth largest builder in the United States,” said Joe Gassman, President/CEO of Habitat “We are proud to help families obtain affordable housing, and we thank our supporters for their commitment to helping families in need.”
