Your participation helps families like the Lannings


 The Lannings - Megan, Aidan, Aribelle and Maverick

Megan became the sole supporter of her three wonderful children after her husband abandoned them.  Living in a cramped 2 bedroom home paying current market rent and all the other expenses that go along with raising a family, Megan is so excited to be a Habitat future homeowner and have her housing expense become a fraction of what she is currently struggling to pay, not to mention having a forever home for she and her children.  For the past year and a half, Megan has been working at Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity as our family support coordinator.  She works with future homeowners guiding them through the process of homeowner education and other requirements.

Since 1987, Charlotte County Habitat has helped over 500 Charlotte County families achieve the dream of home ownership and this year we plan to help an additional 36. Charlotte County Habitat homes are sold at an affordable price to qualified applicants who meet our program criteria. Our applicants must have a need for affordable housing, must have the ability to pay their mortgage and must have a willingness to partner with Charlotte County Habitat. Our affiliate operates four resale stores, one in Punta Gorda, two in Port Charlotte and one in Englewood. These stores generate revenue which helps purchase materials needed to build homes for families in Charlotte County.
