Nassau Habitat for Humanity Board of Directors invites the community to attend a reception at Mocama Beer Company on Sunday, June 26th at 5 P.M. Nassau Habitat is excited to reveal our goals to increase the number of affordable homes we build each year and expand our building footprint off Amelia Island by 2026.

In 2021, 88 eligible applicants applied for the two houses that were funded and built. This is a 57% increase over 2020. Habitat estimates that the local unmet need in Nassau County is up to almost 88% compelling Habitat to do more.

Nassau Habitat relies on the local community for funding and for the volunteers we need to help build homes that can be purchased by Nassau County residents at an affordable rate.  It will take this village to reach our important new goals.

At the event the leadership will launch our newest fundraiser She Nailed It!– an all women, nail-hammering relay competition to be held on October 23, 2022, in partnership with Mocama Beer Company and the New South Food Truck.

This inaugural event will feature a fierce competition between local hammering teams from our community along with a silent auction, raffle prizes, food, and beverages.  Don’t miss the fun! Gather June 26th 5 P.M. at Mocama Beer Company!
