2016 Habitat for Humanity Project – Martin County

This year the South Florida PGA Foundation will partner with Habitat for Humanity of Martin County to build our 5th home through Habitat for Humanity.  This year’s home is located in Stuart at 3254 SE Ellendale St. / Stuart, FL  34997 and Tandra Islam will be purchasing the home for her and her two child to live in.

Tandra moved to Martin County 10 years ago from Dhaka, Bangladesh. She currently works during the day for the Martin County School District as a pre-kindergarten ESE teacher. In the afternoons, Tandra works at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County 10-year old and up students.  She is the mother of two children, Safqaat, 6 and Tanjila, 10.  Tandra and her children are currently living in a two-bedroom apartment, when she purchases her Habitat home, she will be the first member of her family to own her own home. When she first applied to be a homebuyer in April 2010 she was told she would have to clean up some financial issues before she could proceed. Three years later she returned and has continued through the process.  “My main hope is to be a great Habitat for Humanity homeowners and I hope to build a better life for myself and for my kids,” Tandra said.

As we build this home we request the support of the local community including our PGA Professionals to help us make this dream come true for the Islam family.  Please note the following opportunities to get involved.
