It’s in a neighborhood many wouldn’t have stepped foot in just a year ago.
“It’s going really well,” Peterson said. “We love it. It’s an amazing program.”
He’s one of several new homeowners in a neighborhood called “Town and Country Villas” in New Port Richey.
The area, which is located near US 19 and Gulf Drive, has long been known for its dilapidated homes and crime.
Now, it’s looking a lot different with new neighbors moving in.
Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas and West Pasco came into the neighborhood more than two years ago. They started buying up and demolishing some of the old, dilapidated homes that were attracting crime.
For the third year in a row, MarineMax partnered with Habitat for Humanity to present a deserving family the keys to their new home in Clearwater, Florida.
“A Habitat for Humanity house dedication ceremony is life-changing,” states Brett McGill, MarineMax Chief Executive Officer and President. “The pandemic presented challenges, but our leadership team came out to celebrate the occasion and honor the Taylor family.”
