We've served over 763 low-income families through a combination of new construction and the repair of existing homes. Through our tithing we have also served 867 families overseas in areas of disaster such as Nepal, Bangladesh and Haiti.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

One in five individuals living in Indian River County Florida is living in poverty. The population of Indian River County according to 2017 data, records more than 150,000 residents. The families that we build homes for are those who often own very few assets. They are employed, but often constrained in their ability to increase their income for various reasons. Therefore, they are generally not eligible for a conventional mortgage from a financial institution and are often forced to rent their housing. By supporting Indian River Habitat for Humanity you assist us in meeting the affordable housing need in Indian River County, Florida.

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Our core mission is to provide affordable housing through the notion of a ‘hand up’ and break the cycle of housing instability.

Our overarching goal is ensure that our neighbors in Indian River County are educated about home ownership, contribute ‘sweat equity’ in building their own house, and – by taking ownership of that house – are able to greatly minimize or even eliminate the fear that accompanies housing insecurity.

This is important: when we are not afraid of losing the roof over our heads, we are free to be our creative selves, and better manage the future for ourselves and our family.

In July 2018, we entered into the third year of a five year strategic plan. In 2018-19 we will serve at least 100 families in Indian River County, Florida.

We rely on the generosity of our community partners and volunteers to work alongside our home buyer candidates to build a decent and affordable home as well as to give our families strength and stability. Our home buyers contribute hundreds of 'sweat equity' hours and learn the benefit of saving money on a monthly basis. One of our community partners commented, "I never realized all of the behind-the-scene work that goes on at Indian River Habitat for Humanity; they are with their home buyers each step of the way to home ownership!"

In addition, our strategies include: raising awareness of the local affordable housing need, increasing financial giving, faithfully applying these contributions; advocating and partnering to increase affordable housing access; and inspiring action to end poverty housing.

In the past 27 years, IRHFH has experienced a successful track record of serving more than 900 families in Indian River County.

We have a small, yet very experienced staff in the areas of mortgage lending, regulatory compliance, construction, retail and compassion. We appreciate the privilege that it is for us to offer a 'hand up' to our neighbors in need of affordable housing, a home repair project, a gently used piece of furniture, or a scholarship in order to receive some training that our family members otherwise would not be able to afford.

We know that we are making progress toward our goal as well as a difference in Indian River County one family at a time.

We have a five year goal of serving at least 500 families in five years.

The goal for 2018-19 is to build 18 newly constructed homes; repair or rehabilitate 80 homes in order to keep families in their own home; and we are planning on recycling 2 homes this year. In addition, we must continually work to decrease our construction costs through community partnerships with businesses as well as a construction completion schedule of approximately 145 days from ground breaking.

In addition, Indian River Habitat for Humanity has a large ReStore, approximately 40,000 square feet. All items in the ReStore are through the generous donations of our neighbors here in Indian River County. The sales generated from this facility provides the funding for one in three homes we build; for fiscal year 2018-19 the ReStore will provide the funding for three homes.

In preparation for the 2018-19 school year, Indian River Habitat for Humanity awarded ten post-secondary education scholarships to homeowners and/or their children who are continuing their education beyond high school.
We are on schedule to serve at least 100 families in Indian River County between now and June 30, 2019.
* We have completed and dedicated one newly constructed house this year and the single mom with her four boys will move into her new
home late September.
* Two additional houses are more than 60% complete and those families are prepared to move into their new home mid-October.
* We have started four more newly constructed houses with two of the foundations poured this week and two wall raising celebrations were
enjoyed with the families on Saturday, September 8th.
* We have completed four Neighborhood Revitalization projects
* The ReStore continues to reduce our carbon footprint by daily diverting tons of quality goods from the landfill.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
