Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter is dedicated to serving Lake and Sumter counties in Central Florida. Our programs are specifically designed to meet the needs of our local communities, and will continue to evolve with them. We are your Hometown Habitat.
Habitat for Humanity of Lake County was founded in October of 1989 and provides affordable housing for the Lake and Sumter County.
In addition to the standard mission of “bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope,” Habitat of Lake-Sumter has been a leader in innovation to build a more stable and sustainable future for the homeowner and community. We have become an integral part of our two counties, bringing together government, private citizens, public and private companies for the betterment of the entire community. It is our goal to provide access and opportunity to affordable housing solutions for those who need it.
