Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter, alongside New Covenant United Methodist Church, is excited to announce the construction of a new home in Oxford, Florida.

This project is the first home to be constructed as part of a brand-new collaboration between Habitat Lake-Sumter and New Covenant United Methodist Church.

Since 2006, New Covenant United Methodist Church has had a special interest in providing community assistance that focuses on construction, repairs, and family support in the Wildwood and Lady Lake area. A partnership has been formed between Habitat Lake-Sumter and New Covenant United Methodist Church to continue to provide this type of aid to families in Sumter County.

Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter and New Covenant United Methodist Church will work side by side to complete construction on a home for a family who has been selected through Habitat Lake-Sumter’s Home Ownership program.

Through the Home Ownership program, Habitat Lake-Sumter sells affordable site-built homes to individuals and families within Lake and Sumter counties who have demonstrated need, are willing to partner with Habitat, meet the program guidelines, and have the ability to sustain an affordable monthly mortgage payment.

Habitat Lake-Sumter and New Covenant United Methodist Church plan to continue this partnership into the future in order to provide the Sumter County community with access to safe, affordable housing. There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the beginning of construction on January 10th in Oxford.

This event is open to the public and media is invited to attend the ribbon cutting event. Please RSVP by January 9th to Melanie – 352-483-0434 x 141 or melanie@HabitatLS.org
