Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties as received $371,000 in grants from Shadow Wood Charitable Foundation. A grant of $325,000 will directly support Habitat’s Affordable Homeownership Program, which builds new and rehabilitates existing homes and sells them to low-income families through an affordable mortgage. Funds will also supplement the nonprofit’s Housing Counseling program, an initiative that offers one-on-one support and resources for current and future homeowners seeking to finance, maintain or own a home. Due to Hurricane Ian’s structural damage to Habitat’s main offices, the foundation also provided a $25,000 grant to help relocate its operations. An additional $21,000 was granted to its Hurricane Recovery Home Repair Program to assist those still affected in the community. Through the program, low-income households in the county can receive much-needed urgent repairs, such as roof repair or replacement, siding, drywall, painting and windows and doors. The funds will be used to help Habitat achieve its goal of partnering with 100 low-income families to rebuild their homes this year.
