SF Completes Fourteenth Habitat For Humanity House


Santa Fe College students and apprentices have completed their fourteenth home built with Habitat for Humanity. It was moved to its permanent site from the school’s Northwest Campus on June 13. 

Toikeith Reynolds is the new house’s owner. Reynolds told a local media outlet that “A home to me is more than just eating food on the table. It’s a place to come and think about things that happen in your life; you might make decisions, go to school, start a business, whatever the case may be.” 

Students in Santa Fe College’s Construction and Technical programs worked with crews from Habitat for Humanity. This home is the third sponsored by local company Charles Perry Partners Inc. The Builders Association of North Central Florida sponsors the SF apprentices. 

Work on each house begins during the fall term. Students work throughout the year to get the home ready to leave the Charles R. Perry Construction Institute in late spring. It is built in two parts and reassembled on the homesite. Once it arrives at its destination, the home gets a few final finishing touches before the keys are given to the new owners. 

Construction of the fifteenth Habitat house will begin in August.
