According to  Habitat for Humanity SPBC, this opportunity, which has been named Lots of Humanity, is the first time Habitat has been able to build in two years.

"The relationship between the CRA and Habitat for Humanity SPBC has developed over the years resulting in more affordable and workforce housing opportunities for families from a range of income levels," said Jeff Costello, executive director of the Delray Beach CRA. "These projects have a positive impact on the stabilization of our neighborhoods and addresses the housing needs in the CRA District and the City as a whole."
