Founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller, Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry. HFHI seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.

Celebrating more than 32 years of building houses and building hope in Brevard County, Habitat for Humanity of Brevard is a non-profit, non-denominational Christian housing ministry that has successfully constructed, recycled and remodeled more than 350 homes. Dedicated to eradicating substandard housing by building simple, decent, affordable homes in partnership with low and very-low income families in need, Habitat for Humanity is a catalyst for individual and community transformation.

The Theology of the Hammer
"We may disagree on all sorts of things--baptism, communion, what night to have a prayer meeting and how the preacher should dress. But, thank God, we can agree on a nail, and the use of the hammer as an instrument to manifest God's love."

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY OF BREVARD COUNTY, INC. (HFHBC)
... is the result of the successful merger between Habitat For Humanity South Brevard and Space Coast Habitat For Humanity on June 30, 2005. Due to the increased housing costs in Brevard County and the overwhelming need for more affordable housing, the two Habitat for Humanity affiliates, announced their decision to merge and consolidate efforts effective July 1, 2005. By bringing the strengths of both affiliates together it is believed the new affiliate HFHBC will be more accessible to the general public, thus increasing the organizations identity within the community to increase and organize its volunteer base and resource development strategies. The intent of this combined effort is to provide more homeownership opportunities to Brevard County residents in need of simple, decent, affordable housing.

Habitat for Humanity Calls for Volunteers to Help Paint Columbia Elementary
Palm Bay, FL - Habitat for Humanity of Brevard, Inc., is hosting the beautification project for Columbia Elementary School located at 1225 Waco Blvd SE, Palm Bay. Volunteers are needed.
The entire interior of the school will be painted in a community group effort lead by Habitat for Humanity of Brevard in collaboration with Columbia Elementary School. Principal Rachel Roberts explains, "This school hasn't seen a fresh coat of paint in many years and the educators here wanted to do something to brighten their students' little lives... even if it's just some cheerful colors on the walls of where they spend the majority of their day."
Columbia Elementary School's Vision Statement is: "To provide a safe and stable environment that will enable all students to thrive intellectually, physically, and emotionally. We strive to provide an atmosphere that will help mold our students to become well rounded citizens who encompass pride and respect for themselves and for their community."
Anyone looking to help out is welcome. Call Habitat's Volunteer Coordinator, Brittany Sexton at 321.728.4009 x120 or email volunteer@BrevardHabitat.com to sign up. Work side by side with dedicated educators, devoted parents, and committed Habitat volunteers who will all be in attendance, brush in hand.
