Beaches Habitat for Humanity named Affiliate of Distinction

Beaches Habitat for Humanity has been recognized as an “Affiliate of Distinction” by Habitat for Humanity International. The Affiliates of Distinction program is a two year formal program for affiliates that meet or exceed a number of key indicator best practice standards and represent a broad spectrum of our affiliate network — the “best of the best.” The distinction, given on a biennial basis, was established in 2013 to collect, showcase, and recognize the exemplary efforts of Habitat affiliates.

For 27 years, Beaches Habitat for Humanity has worked in the Jacksonville Beaches to help local families achieve strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. Through our programs, more than 370 Habitat homeowners have built or improved a place they can call home. In addition to new home construction, Beaches Habitat has partnered with local residents to repair, improve and update their owner-occupied homes through a variety of projects that have included landscaping, roof replacement and exterior painting.

Recognizing the importance of education in achieving financial stability, we provide free educational opportunities and scholarships to Habitat families.

There are approximately 1,400 Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the United States. Local Habitat organizations considered for the honor were reviewed by four criteria: Building a Sustainable Organization, Building Community Impact, Building Sector Impact and Building Societal Impact.
