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.
