The Clay County Habitat for Humanity is an organization dedicated to eliminating substandard housing and assisting those in need. Using funds generated from donated items sold in their "Restore", the CCHH is able to renovate houses and at times, build new homes.

"Since 1977 we have built houses in neighborhoods throughout Clay County. Shelter is a basic human need, and Habitat strives to achieve its goal of eliminating poverty housing and making decent, affordable homes a reality for all families."

Working through a neighborhood, CCHH strives to revitalize a community, thus increasing property value for all homes in the area. Using both skilled and unskilled workers, the construction force is comprised almost entirely of volunteers. Men and women alike roll up their sleeves and work side-by-side embracing the spirit of humanity, and giving back the community.

On January 11, 2012,VP-62, stationed at NAS Jacksonville, sent a group of seasoned professionals. They're expertise, however, lay in the field of Anti-submarine warfare and not so much in framing, hanging drywall or replacing floors. It doesn't take long, however, to understand the need and pitch in to help, whether it's holding a board or driving a nail.

Equally impressive are the regular volunteers with the Clay County Habitat for Humanity Construction and Restore facilities. Many of the dwellings they refurbish are in serious need of renovation. Guided by a team of highly skilled Team Leaders, various jobs are cpmplete by an assortment of volunteers cycling through.

Regardless of the diversity of the volunteers brought together on any particular day, or any particular project, the job runs smoothly, quality work is produced and those in need are provided an attractive, comfortable house they can call "home."

The combine efforts of both the Restore and the construction crew ensure the continued success of the Clay County Habitat for Humanity. They will continue to improve the quality of life for a great number of people. They will continue to make a difference.
