Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County is proud of each and every home and neighborhood that has been developed through partnerships with our Habitat families, donors, and volunteers. Since 1986 we have built or rehabilitated over 230 homes throughout Palm Beach County.

We are a proud member of the Florida Green Building Coalition.

We are committed to safety. Members of our Construction staff have completed Competent Person Training, qualifying them to ensure the safest environment possible for all of our volunteers.

What we build

Habitat homes around the world are built according to the same guiding principles:

Simple. Habitat houses are modestly-sized. They are large enough for the homeowner family’s needs, but small enough to keep construction and maintenance costs to a minimum.

Decent. Habitat for Humanity uses quality, locally-available building materials. Habitat house designs reflect the local climate and culture.

Affordable. The labor of volunteers and partner families, efficient building methods, modest house sizes and no-profit loans make it affordable for low-income families to purchase Habitat houses.

Where we build

Our service area goes from Hypoluxo to the Martin County line and West to include the communities of Belle Glade, South Bay and Pahokee. (map) We have built communities in West Palm Beach and Jupiter, and have built homes in and helped revitalize the communities of Lake Worth, Coleman Park, and the Historic Northwest District.

What’s Next?

We plan to continue our efforts in West Palm Beach and Jupiter, and will soon begin expanding our efforts in the western communities.
