Habitat for Humanity Annual Report 2008

  1. 1. Dear Friends and Partners,This year, Habitat for Humanity of Lee County surpassed the construction of 900 homes sinceour beginning in 1982. Today, Habitat homes can be found in all parts of Lee County; HarlemHeights, Dunbar, Bonita Springs, Lehigh Acres, Cape Coral, Fort Myers, North Fort Myers,Pine Island and even in parts of Hendry County. We plan to continue our ambitious effortsin the area, building at least one hundred homes every year and offering family support to ourhome owners.Because of our local community interest in housing deserving families in Lee County, we cancontinue to help eliminate the sub standard living conditions right here in our communityby giving a hand-up and not a hand-out. When we evaluate our lives closely, we can see theblessings God has bestowed upon each of us; great and small. In this report, you will readthe stories from some of our friends who have partnered with Habitat over the years. Thesepartners have poured out their blessings generously to Lee and Hendry County families in manydifferent ways. I John 3:17-18 says, “If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in needbut has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love withwords or tongue but with actions and in truth.”At Habitat for Humanity of Lee County, we are proud to say that our donors and volunteershave grasped this concept by giving of their time and resources. As we go forward, we know thatour donors and volunteers will continue supporting our needs in the community for those inneed. We are excited for what the future has in store for Habitat and know that our supporterswill be behind us.On behalf of Habitat, we would like to thank our friends and partners who have helped make adifference here in Lee County during the past two decades. We appreciate your commitment tothe community!With a Grateful Heart and In Habitat Spirit,Vern Archibald Charles K.

  5. 5. Families Power of Partnerships Ramon & Edith RiveraRamon and Edith Rivera were thevery first Habitat for Humanity of LeeCounty homeowners. “A city worker wasin the area and told our family about theHabitat program that was just startinghere,” says Ramon. The Rivera familymoved into their home in 1982 and paidtheir last mortgage payment in 2000.“We were so happy to just be in theprogram, it was something unexpectedand meant we didn’t have to pay rentany longer. And we were overjoyed when we made that last payment,” Ramon says. The family saysthey learned how to paint and lay tiles during their sweat equity. Today, the Rivera’s six childrenare all grown; Ramon, Jr., 54, Anna, 52, Ricardo, 44, Rueban, 42, Alicia, 41, Reynaldo, 34, asthey welcome the five grandkids into their home. “If Habitat gives you an opportunity to enter theprogram, take it, because it’s a good opportunity and it probably won’t come twice,” says Ramon. Shonda Batio It’s been 13 years now, since Shonda Batio first moved into her Harlem Heights Habitat home. “At the time I was a single parent and just got out of LPN school and I wanted affordable housing for my kids and me. It was one of my biggest blessings in my life. I remember being in disbelief when I got approved,” says Batio. With a full-time job, two kids and no family in the area, Shonda says the sweat equity hours seemed to take forever. “It was a long journey to where I am now. I’ve always been veryappreciative of my home. In fact, I remember it was theKiwanis Club on Sanibel Island that sponsored my home.I learned a very important lesson through that program,that if you really want something, you can do it,” saysShonda. Since then, Shonda has married, her son has goneoff to college in Virginia and also gotten married while herdaughter is a senior at the Cypress Lake Center of Arts.“The home is a reflection of yourself and your family andI’ve really taken pride in my home in everything I do,” says Shonda.

  6. 6. Power of Partnerships Seferino & Paula Martinez Living alone as a widow wasn’t easy for Paula Martinez. So she opted to have her son, Seferino, share a mobile home with her in Bonita Springs. In 2002, the city decided to uproot the community of homes with a roadway passing through, thus forcing homeowners to find a new location. With prices out of reach for the widowand son, a friend recommended Habitat for Humanity.The two entered the program together and closed ontheir Bonita Springs home in October 2003. At the sametime, Paula’s 18-year old niece was living with in-laws andsharing a room with her husband and son. She also foundHabitat for Humanity as the only option for her family toown a home in Lee County as well. A month before Paulaand Seferino closed on their home, Alicia Garcia & Joel Rodriguez moved in next door. Jasmine Martinez Families Jasmine Martinez may be new in the Habitat family, but Habitat’s program has been a household name for years. “My grandmother (Paula Martinez) and uncle went through the program four years ago to get a home in Bonita Springs. My cousin also went through the program and got a home next door to my grandmother,” says Jasmine. Martinez closed on her Lehigh Acres home in November of 2007 after completing her sweat equity and homeowner classes in just under four months. “I like that Habitat worked with me a lot. It’s hard to find a place to livethat goes by your income and if you can find something, it’s usually not a safe place for kids,” saysJasmine. Before entering Habitat’s program, Martinez was sharing a room with her two and a halfyear-old son in Jasmine’s parent’s house. “I really wanted us to have a home of our own, but I was afull-time student and couldn’t afford the high prices here. My brothers helped me finish my hoursso I could be in my house by Christmas,” says Martinez. Page 5
  7. 7. Power of Partnerships Raeshonda Williams FamiliesRaeshonda Williams was a single parent with four kids living in an apartment that was frequentedby crime. “The area just was not safe for my kids to be growing up in. I needed a place that wouldbe in a safe area and had a backyard for thechildren to play,” says Williams. Raeshonda’sLehigh Acres home was dedicated in December2007. “It was really a good experience for mebecause I learned a lot of things around thehouse that I can do on my own that I didn’tknow how to do before. Siding is one of them.If I ever want to change the color of my homeor need to put up new siding, I now know howto do it on my own,” Williams says. Raeshondasays the most trying part of the Habitatprogram was the labor put into building ahome and learning patience on the worksitesto get through her sweat equity hours, but today she’s all smiles as she’s finally earned the keys toher new home. “I feel really good and really proud to finally say that I’m a homeowner!” exclaimsWilliams. James & Tara Saunders James and Tara Saunders had only been married a couple of years in 1994 when a Habitat employee suggested Habitat for Humanity of Lee County as an option to stop renting. “We were renting an apartment here and there and it seemed like we were moving around a lot,” says Saunders. After applying for the homeownership program, Tara learned about the AmeriCorps Vista program with the organization as well and served for two years with Habitat. “I never knew a program like that existed that allowed me to give back while receiving a stipend and education award, it was what I needed at the time,” she recalls. The family moved into their new home in December of 1995. Since then, the family has rooted themselves in serving the community. James is a firefighter while Tara works for the Emergency Medical Services. Today, James and Tara and their three children; Allen, 17, Shea, 11 and Parker, 5 are grateful to have entered the Habitat programwhen they did. “It’s definitely helped us get to where we are today. When we started we had verylittle and today we have careers, a home we can afford and healthy children. Page 6
  8. 8. Power of Partnerships Oleksanda &Valeriy VendenkoUkraine natives Oleksanda & Valeriy Vendenko migrated to the United States in the early 90’s insearch of job opportunities, but found prices unaffordable for their family to own a home. A long-time Habitat donor told the familyabout the organization’s program.In 2005, the family closed on theirNorth Fort Myers home. “It’s great!My mother is planting a lot of treesand my dad is putting up a fence,”says daughter Anastasia. “My fathereven turned the garage into a studiobecause he’s an artist and needed thespace,” she says. Anastasia finishedher last year at Wellesley College inMassachusetts and has since movedback to Lee County where she’sgetting clinical experience to enter themedical field. Meanwhile, Oleksanda has opened an ice cream shop on Sanibel Island. “Our family Familiesis so happy to have this house. We have lots of plans for landscaping and we’re very thankful to thisorganization for giving us the chance to have this house,” says Oleksanda. John &Lisa Trupo John and Lisa Trupo were fed up living in their small apartment with high rent, located behind a substation with heavy traffic in their backyard. The family of four was accepted into Habitat’s homeownership program and closed on their Cape Coral home in May 2007. “John and I were motivated to get our hours completed in just a few months so the girls could have their own rooms,” says Lisa. The Trupos now enjoy their quiet neighborhood and big backyard. “I have the best neighbors in the world I think. It’s been really good for us to have a home of our own wherewe can put up a fence in the backyard. In fact, we even got a dog for the girls and we’re working ongetting a swingset as well,” says Lisa. Page 7
  9. 9. Power of Partnerships African Caribbean and American Catholic Center More than half of Habitat’s volunteers are under the age of 30. Habitat has been blessed to have had every Lee County high school partner with the organization in 2007. Plus, several elementary and middle schools as well as Florida Gulf Coast University and Edison College students pitched in as well. In addition to the local colleges, many students from all over the U.S. spent their Spring Break with Lee County’s Habitat affiliate this year, helping organization 70,000 volunteers. The African Caribbean and American Catholic Center, a mentoring program for teenage boys, is one of many Volunteersyouth groups giving back to the community through Habitat’s volunteer program. “It’s an excellantway to teach the boys about giving back to the community and family values. On top of that, theHabitat construction leaders have been great mentors to the kids,” says Dave Lyons, AFCAAM. Gartner, Inc.Gartner, Inc. has volunteered with Habitat for more than four years, choosing to work on buildsites for two weeks at a time. In 2007, the group sent 131 volunteers to the job site and racked up786 volunteer hours. This type ofcommitment is the driving force thatkeeps Habitat building. “Not onlydoes working with Habitat allow usto give back to the community, italso enables more team building andstronger relationships within our ownwork environment as we work side byside and get to know each other just alittle bit more,” says Judy Robertson,Sr. Sales Operations Mgr. “When wevolunteer on a housing site, everyonewalks away with a renewed outlook onlife and what truly matters – helpingothers whenever and wherever you can. It is an amazing feeling the impact of just one day ofvolunteering can make on someone else’s life,” says Robertson. Page 8
  10. 10. Power of Partnerships Sanibel Congregational United Church of ChristSanibel Congregational United Churchof Christ has partnered with Habitatfor over 15 years, giving more than$167,000. “Most of our congregationis older and cannot volunteer on thesites, but they’ve been very good aboutgiving what they can,” says Sanibel-UCC member Brenda Tate. In the lasttwo years, the church has sponsoredtwo homes and is currently working ontheir third. And those who can buildare doing so. “Dick Travas is a memberof the church and volunteers weekly inHabitat’s warehouse preconstructingwalls. Donna Aldridge is an active Volunteersparticipant in the congregation and comes out at least three days a week,” says Tate. Dean DozierDean Dozier began volunteering with Habitat for Humanity of Lee County in February 2007. “I had been familiar with their work and had recently returned from a missions trip. I was determined that I needed to get some building skills before my next missions trip and I thought Habitat would help me attain those skills for future trips,” Dean says. Since then, 75-year old Dozier has learned more than just building skills on Habitat’s construction sites; he’s learned how he can make a difference locally. “The thing that I’m impressed with about Habitat is the quality of their building standards. Habitat builds an outstanding house! It’s not justthrown together, there is a lot of work that goes into the building of those homes. The supervisorsare pros with a a lot of patience for the volunteers and they’ve helped me be more effective,” saysDozier. Page 9
  11. 11. Power of Partnerships Gene Suggs VolunteersUnemployment rates went through the roof in 2007, settingsome all time highs. In his late 50’s, Gene Suggs is one of manylong-time construction workers laid off from the industry.“My severance package has run out, so now I’m collectingunemployment while I’m without a job,” says Suggs. After twomonths of struggling to find a job opening, Gene decided todonate some of his time and talent to Habitat. “I was sitting athome living off of savings. It wasn’t fulfilling. My life felt emptyand I needed a reason to get up each morning and continuedoing something and I wanted to do it in an area I’m skilled in,”he says. Gene considered leaving the Lee County area in pursuitof another construction job, but with family moving to the areain less than a year, leaving the community didn’t seem like afeasible option. Gene decided to spend three to five days a weekvolunteering “I’m just hoping the market comes back sometimesoon, but for now, I’ll continue volunteering my time to a worthycause and give back to the community with the time I’ve beengiven,” says Suggs. Cape Christian FellowshipCape Christian Fellowship first stepped foot on a Habitat for Humanity construction site becauseof a church member who had entered the homeownership program. The church helped Bill Watson and his two grandchildren achieve 500 sweat equity hours and own a home through Habitat’s program. “It’s our mission to give of ourselves and do what Jesus did. We’re all called to share our blessings and talents with others. It’s the story of the talents. Why bury a skill or talent when you can help make the world a better place,” says George Camargo, a Cape Christian Fellowship member. Since Watson, several others interested in homeownership through Habitat have approached the church for help with their hours as well. “It’s aboutbuilding relationships. This is what we should be doing everyday and by volunteering, it allowsus to build friendships with homeowners and other volunteers we may have otherwise never met.Everybody has something to offer regardless of their age or gender; it’s a team effort,” says Camargo.Cape Christian Fellowship volunteers work on Habitat construction sites every month. Page 10
  12. 12. Power of Partnerships Pelican LandingPelican Landing residents, under the leadership of Gerry Lanois, have been fund raising and wallraising with Habitat for Humanity of Lee County for the past 5 years. In November 2007, thegroup constructed their sixth Habitat home inLee County. “Most of us feel we have gottenso much out of life and now that we’ve hitretirement, we want to give some of that back,”says Ted Smith, a Pelican Landing resident.Pelican Landing residents first got involved withHabitat because of the lack of affordable housingin their area. “Habitat really gets the results backinto the hands of those in need. There isn’t ahuge amount of administrative costs and youcan see the work and effort that goes into thesehomes,” says Smith. Since then, the group saysthey benefit greatly by being involved. “To see Volunteersthe joy and tears in the homeowners when they receive the keys, it’s priceless and that’s why wecontiue to do this,” says Smith. The Garden Club from Pelican Landing has also stepped in byplanting the trees and bushes for the homes. Bonita BayThe Bonita Bay Group and Bonita Bay Residents have also been instrumental in both fund raisingand volunteering with Habitat. The Bonita Bay Residents has been partnering with Habitat forfive years as well. Cal Walker and Tom Lammert organize and lead the volunteers on Habitat construction sites three to four times a week. The residents first decided to get involved with Habitat because of the growing need for affordable housing in Bonita Springs. “We live in Bonita Springs and are well aware that so many workers are traveling from Cape Coral, Fort Myers and Lehigh to come work in our community. We want to be able to provide housing for our workers here. It’s too expensive for an entry-level position to drive that far towork here and yet too expensive for them to live here, so we want to be part of a solution,” saysWalker. Since their first Habitat houseraising in the Rosemary Park area, the group has decided tocontinue a neighborhood ‘spruce up’ and has sponsored homes along the street. In 2008 the groupwill raise the first Habitat Twin Villa in Bonita Springs; a new design for the Lee County affiliate.“We have fun building houses. We get about 30 nailpounders together and go to work together,”says Walker. Page 11
  13. 13. Power of Partnerships Biddy Lang DonorsIn 1999, Biddy Lang and her husband beganrenovating some apartments the couple hadinvested in. A Habitat employee suggested thetwo get materials to help in the remodeling fromthe Habitat Thrift Store. This was the couple’sfirst encounter with what would become a legacyof giving. Soon Biddy and her husband werevolunteering on construction sites and donatingto the cause. After her husband passed away,Biddy carried on their legacy of giving to Habitat’smission. In 2006, Lang was honored withHabitat’s Lifetime Achievement award. AlthoughBiddy cannot do much on the constructionsite, she continues to volunteer with Habitat bystuffing envelopes for Habitat’s bulk mailing a few times a year and giving financially to the charity. Bonita-Estero Association of Realtors In 2006, the Bonita Springs- Estero-Association of Realtors chose Habitat for Humanity of Lee County to benefit from their annual auction. In 2007, the group of realtors ramped up their involvement with Habitat by also contributing monies from a golf tournament and their 2007 annual auction. On December 15th, BEAR lifted the walls on a Fort Myers home to mark the first home sponsorship the group has contributed to. “We’re in thebusiness of selling homes and making dreams come true just like Habitat for Humanity. There wasan instant connection we saw between what we do and what Habitat does so we figured this wouldbe the best partnership for us,” says Nancy Martin, Realtor and Chairman of BEAR’s BanquetCommittee. Page 12
  14. 14. Power of Partnerships Henry Camosse Donors It was 1997 when Henry Camosse first became acquainted with Habitat for Humanity of Lee County. At a fundraiser, Henry heard about the organization’s work in his backyard. “My dad was always the one who tried to support people who needed help and I guess he passed that on to me,” says Camosse. “There are a lot of charities out there and sometimes it becomes a big question as to who to give to, but when you see the results and the progress that Habitat continues to make in the community it makes you feel like your contributing so much. I wish I could actually be out there to build, but I’ve been blessed financially and I’m able to give back in that manner. I’m just a small part in the biggerpicture of Habitat’s work, but I’m glad I can be that part,” says Camosse. Wright ConstructionIn 2007, Habitat for Humanityannounced it’s Builder’s Blitz campaignas part of a nationwide effort toencourage local contractors to getinvolved in the local Habitat affiliate’smission. The Builder’s Blitz allowsHabitat for Humanity to increaseaffiliate capacity by continuingwith regular production scheduleswhile professional builders organizeand execute the blitz build. WrightConstruction, located in South FortMyers, was the first Lee Countyconstruction company to jump on board with the idea. Wright Construction will build a homefrom frame to finish in 2008 and get involved in fundraising for the materials. Since 1997, theconstruction company has been a proud supporter of the charity. The complete value of theirnewest contribution is over $150,000. Wright Construction is a Christian construction companythat provides full construction management and building services. Page 13
  15. 15. Corporate Sponsor of the Year Colonial RoofingDonorsIn 2007, Colonial Roofing stepped up tothe Habitat plate by donating employeelabor to help build Habitat roofs. In ninemonths, the company donated $60,460.00in roofing expertise. As of December2007, Colonial Roofing employees haveshingled more than 35 Habitat roofs inLee County. “The roofing industry in thisarea has provided a good living for LeeCounty residents over the years and givingback to the community that has supportedus is important. For us, donating roofs isa direct result that we can see as we give,”says Colonial Roofing President GlennBailey. It is because of their generosity and diligence to continue building with Habitat that we havenamed Colonial Roofing as Corporate Sponsor of the Year. Individual Sponsor of the Year Duane & Cookie Swanson It wasn’t long after Habitat for Humanity of Lee County moved into their North Fort Myers location before Duane & Cookie Swanson became big supporters of the charity. Duane offered Habitat a deep discount on property near the office and thrift store locations. Today, Habitat’s Senior Housing Complex rests on that land surrounded by a roadway appropriately named Swanson Loop. Duane Swanson’s company, Raymond Building Supply, supports Habitat annually and the couple have become multiple year givers to the organization. “We’ve had friends get involved with Habitat and wanted to give as well. I think it’s a wonderful cause and I’m thrilled to help. Everyone needs a safe place to live and certainly these young families,” says Cookie. It’s because of this couple’s support in money and land thatHabitat for Humanity is pleased to name the Swansons as our Individual Sponsor of the Year. Page 14
  16. 16. Faithful Giver Zoe Smith85-year old Zoe Smith has long been a supporter of Habitat’s mission.“Well, I suppose it was when they started building in Harlem Heightsthat I first started giving to Habitat,” says Zoe. Her name means ‘life’in Greek, a piece of heritage she’s proud of and hopes to extend toothers through Habitat. “I hope I can live up to my name by givinglife to others through these homes. I can only give a little, but I am mybrother’s keeper and regardless of what I have, it all comes from thegood Lord and there seems to always be enough to give,” says Smith.Smith heard about Habitat’s work through Zion Lutheran Church.Since then she has been giving five dollars a month to Habitat for wellover a decade. Over time, those donations have amounted to big moneyfor Habitat. “I have a small pension from social security that I get everymonth as income and I write out my Habitat donation the first of everymonth with all my bills,” says Zoe. It is because of Zoe’s pledge and continual support that Habitatfor Humanity of Lee County is pleased to name her the Faithful Giver award. Donors Faith-Based Sponsor of the Year Iona Hope Episcopal ChurchIona Hope Episcopal Church started financially giving to Habitat for Humanity of Lee County in1999. Four years later, the congregation picked up hammers and started sponsoring and building homes. “We had a couple of members attend the Habitat 101 class and caught the vision of a hand-up instead of a hand- out. They brought back the idea to the church to get more Episcopal churches involved,” says Debbie Prather, an Iona Hope member. In 2006, four other Episcopal churches in the area started fundraising and building together with Iona Hope. Independently, the Iona Hope Episcopal Church has given $89,782.79 so far and continues to fundraise and volunteer for the organization. In 2007, the church raised their sixth home withHabitat. This is why Habitat for Humanity of Lee County has named Iona Hope Episcopal Churchthe Faith-Based Sponsor of the Year. Page 15
  17. 17. Donors Sustaining Sponsor Publix Supermarket CharitiesPublix Supermarket Charities startedcontributing to Habitat for Humanityof Lee County in 1996. Since then, theorganization has donated funds almostevery year totaling $349,000. In 2008, 28stores in the Lee County area will lift thewalls on a Publix-sponsored home andparticipate in the constructing of Habitat’shomes. “We’re going to get six stores ata time to supply workers who can workon the home. We want to be a part of theconstruction of the home we sponsoredfrom start to finish,” says David Waring, aDistrict Manager for Publix Supermarkets.Because of their continued efforts insupporting Lee County’s Habitat for Humanity of Lee County, we would like to present PublixSupermarket Charities with the Sustaining Sponsor award. Volunteer of the Year Harold Elsesser For almost 20 years, Harold Elsesser has spent at least four days a week volunteering with Habitat for Humanity of Lee County. In fact, he has turned his personal vehicle into a work truck; carrying tools to and from the Habitat build sites. Harold works alongside five others who pitch in on the projects and have become close friends over the years. His knowledge of the build process has been instrumental to those learning and working around him. And as 83-year old Harold Elsesser jumps from a scaffold or climbs up a ladder, he continues to prove to the youth that ‘volunteering will keep you young.’ It is difficult to calculate how many families Harold has helped house over the years, but Habitat has backtracked his peanut shells left at the job sites and at best estimate it covers more than 525 homes. This is why Habitat for Humanity of Lee County is proud to name Harold Elsesser as our Volunteer of the Year. Page 16
