“One of the things that I enjoy the most is the friends that I have made working at the Habitat sites. One time I was working on a house next to a young man and we got to talking. We became friends and he now has a Habitat house and I see him all the time because Mike works at the ReStore.”
“Jim has been invaluable to me and the affiliate. He has the ability to go from working on a home, to driving the truck to pick up supplies to meeting with city and county officials to help get permits to build homes. He has not only been a valuable volunteer but a great friend over these many years,” said Bob Myers, Construction Manager for Habitat for Humanity of Brevard County.
“If I were to tell anyone about Habitat, I would tell them that it is the most astounding experience you will ever have. You can show up on a Saturday and see just a slab on the ground and when you leave a few hours later the walls are up for a house. Also, You can show up at a site not knowing anything about building a house and when you leave at the end of the day you will have learned a skill that you will use for the rest of your life. The site supervisors will actually take the time to teach you even if you have never worked a day in construction in your life.”]]>
Prior to joining Habitat, Ms. Olson spent 30 years in retail management including human resources, operations, single and multi-store supervision and non-profit growth. “I am very excited to be a part of an organization that is doing such important work in our community. The opportunity to serve Brevard County families in need is a great honor,” Olson stated.
“We are very proud to have Suzanne as the new ReStore Director,” said Diane Koenig, executive director of Brevard Habitat. “Her education, experience and skills are just what we need to help us fulfill our ReStore goals going forward. We are confident she will help us to achieve our stated vision and mission.”
The Brevard Habitat ReStore is open Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Saturdays 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and closed on Sundays. Donations of new and gently used appliances, home furnishings and building materials are accepted and welcomed, and ReStore trucks and personnel will gladly pick up from residential and commercial locations by appointment.]]>

Stewart has put in over 170 hours volunteering at multiple job sites while working full time. Most noted for wearing his neon shirts, especially pink, Stewart has been invaluable to any site he is on.
“Stewart comes out to give of his time and talent but he does so much more than that when he is with us. In order to complete the mission of building decent affordable housing by using volunteers we need to have special volunteers who could pretty much run a job site on their own – Stewart is one of those who not only builds but helps to keep volunteers working on the site,” said Steve Lindner, site supervisor for Habitat for Humanity of Brevard County.

Thank you for being involved in the Habitat for Humanity mission. With a community like you, Habitat for Humanity of Brevard County (Brevard Habitat) has been able to serve and extend a hand up, not a hand out, to 328 families in need in Brevard for the past 30 years.
To dedicate our resources and continue our mission of serving local families, Brevard Habitat is canceling the 2015 Strawberry Festival. While we are disappointed that we will not be able to celebrate with supporters, volunteers and participants at the festival, we are fully vested in continuing our vision to eliminate substandard housing in Brevard County.
Brevard Habitat will be announcing new events and we hope that you will choose to remain involved as we bring people together to build homes, communities and hope. We look forward to expanding our work with you to ensure families in Brevard County have a decent place to live.
We wish to thank you again for your past support of the festival and ask you to join us as we move forward with excitement in to the future.

“Becoming a homeowner, this has always been my dream and now that I have the opportunity through Habitat, it still seems so unreal although I know I will be a great one,” said Sheila Sanders, whose family will be moving into the home when it is completed.
Sponsors such as Bank of America, Mortgage Settlement Fund, Ron Jon Surf Shop, Central Florida Chapter of NIGP, Inc. and Duda Sod Farms have come together to help make this dream a reality. Each Saturday, volunteers comprised mainly of members of the Habitat for Humanity of Brevard County Women Build program will work to bring this dream to fruition.
If you would like to a part of this exciting projecty please contact Women Build Volunteer Coordinator Terry Quinlivan at email@example.com to find out about hours of work and skills needed.]]>
