Our Vision

No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve to have a decent life. We deserve to feel strength and stability day after day. We deserve to know we have the power to take care of ourselves and our children.

Through shelter, we empower. At Manatee Habitat, this is what unites us. Our shared vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Because you, me, we - we're all humans. And every single one of us deserves the opportunity for a better future.



Family Stories

Join three of our newest homeowners, Brittany, Jackie, and Willie, as they share what being a Habitat Homeowner means to them. Manatee Habitat’s homebuyer program partners with qualified, hardworking families to create a more secure future for themselves and their children. The Habitat model provides a “hand up” to families, enabling them to obtain a no-interest mortgage through Habitat and the opportunity to own their first home. When asked about the relationships formed from their Habitat experience, homeowner Brittany tells us "You would never know that we didn’t know each other before – these women are now my sisters, my family. If it wasn’t for Habitat, I wouldn’t have a place to call home and family to fill it with”.
