Long Description:
From the Habitat for Humanity of Brevard County, Inc. website:

Habitat for Humanity of Brevard County, Inc. (HFHBC) is an ecumenical Christian housing ministry, which builds houses in partnership with very low-income families, and welcomes involvement from all people. The houses are sold to families through no interest loans and at no profit. HFHBC holds the mortgages and recycles the principal payments to fund future houses. Construction expenses are kept to a minimum by utilizing volunteer labor, and developing partnerships with churches, businesses, and other organizations to provide cash and “in-kind” donations of building materials, services, and property. HFHBC obtains operating and program funds through the application for federal and local grants, community fund-raising events, and other donations.

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY OF BREVARD COUNTY, INC. (HFHBC) is the result of a successful merger between Habitat for Humanity of South Brevard, incorporated in 1985, serving the south end of Brevard County, and Space Coast Habitat for Humanity, incorporated in 1988, serving the central and north end of the county.

Due to the increased housing costs in Brevard County and the overwhelming need for more affordable housing, the two Habitat for Humanity affiliates, announced their decision to merge and consolidate efforts effective July 1, 2005. By bringing the strengths of both affiliates together it is believed the new affiliate HFHBC will be more accessible to the general public, thus increasing the organization's identity within the community to increase and organize its volunteer base and resource development strategies. The intent of this combined effort is to provide more housing opportunities with those individuals and families who are earning below 56% of our areas median income.

The ReStore sells the following building supplies: electrical, plumbing, doors, lumber, paint, hardware, floor coverings, roofing supplies, power tools, light fixtures, and bathroom fixtures. Home furnishings, appliances, lamps, TV & electronics cabinets, etc. are also available for purchase.
