Description

Our affiliate was approached by officials from Glades County who were inquiring about the Habitat program and what it would take to get Habitat in their community. We met with them several times and it was quite evident there was a tremendous need for affordable housing in Glades County. We did research and discovered Glades County was the only county south of Okeechobee that did not have a Habitat affiliate. Even thought the population is small, 13,000, the need is big. We worked with HFHI and went through the process to expand our Geographic Service Area. As of December 2017, we now serve Charlotte and Glades Counties. Glades is a rural area with very little infrastructure (no grocery stores in the county). The AmeriCorps VISTA Resource Development will assist in helping us achieve our goals of building two homes by the end of fiscal year 2018-2019 and increasing production to five homes a year within three years. The member will develop a marketing plan for both donor and volunteer engagement, tracking and recognition and create overall awareness for the program in order to achieve sustainability.
