History


Home at Last was the idea of William C. Criswell, a World War II veteran of the U.S. Navy Seabees.  West Orange Habitat for Humanity established the project in 2007 to meet the special housing needs of   permanently disabled combat wounded veterans of the Iraq or Afghanistan wars. The project is dedicated to presenting at least one mortgage-free home each year to a veteran. The projects are completed entirely by donations and in-kind contributions of construction labor and materials, in fact over 90% of every dollar raised goes directly to building the homes.

 

In August 2014, Home at Last formed its own organization, amicably splitting from the West Orange Habitat for Humanity program. Since beginning in 2007, the Home at Last program has established a name and reputation in the Central Florida area thus allowing the opportunity for the split and the ability to expand the reach of the never ending goal of supplying combat wounded veterans with the security and comfort of a mortgage-free home.
