Providing a Hand-Up, Not a Hand-Out

Habitat is not a giveaway program. In addition to a down payment and the monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest a minimum of 300 hours of their own labor — sweat equity — into building their Habitat house and the houses of others.
Habitat's funding comes from financial and in-kind contributions from businesses, churches, foundations, community groups and individuals. Funds also come from homeowner mortgage payments and fundraising events. Grants are funded through the federal, state, county and city government.

Founded In 1976 By Millard And Linda Fuller, Habitat Has Built More Than 500,000 Houses World-Wide, Accommodating More Than 2.5 Million People. Currently, More Than 1,500 Affiliates In The United States And 550 International Affiliates Coordinate Habitat For Humanity House-Building Projects In More Than 3,000 Communities Around The World. 

Habitat for Humanity was first incorporated on the Treasure Coast as the Martin-St. Lucie Habitat for Humanity in the summer of 1986. In 1996, due to increasing demand for services, two separate affiliates were created and Habitat for Humanity of Martin County was formed. The organization slowly transitioned from an all-volunteer staff to an executive director with support staff and is supported by an army of volunteers who donate more than 13,000 hours per year.

In 2007, Habitat for Humanity of Martin County moved to 2555 S.E. Bonita Street in Stuart and in 2008 opened a ReStore in the same building.  

In 2015, a second ReStore was opened in the former Carl's Furniture store on US One in Jensen Beach. 2090 NW Federal Hwy. 

Since 1986, Habitat has dedicated 150 homes for hardworking, deserving families in Hobe Sound, Indiantown, Jensen Beach, Port Salerno and Stuart.
