Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter is dedicated to partnering with families and the community to create simple, decent, affordable housing for families in need because we believe a decent home provides the strength, stability, and independence to create a better life. Our goal is to help create a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Homes For Veterans fund ramps, wheelchair accessible bathrooms, ADA kitchen adaptions, elevator installations that will remove a barrier from a disabled veteran’s home so that they can live their every day life freely, as they deserve. Our mission is to provide barrier-free renovations to disabled veteran home owners at no cost to the Veterans or their families. www.homesforveterans.us 

ReStore: Grand Re-Opening

ReStore Update

ReStore: coming soon!

New things are in store at Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter’s ReStores. We will be re-opening the Eustis and Leesburg ReStores in mid-June!

As we transition back to business, the Groveland and Wildwood locations will remain closed with no scheduled date for re-opening.

 

Take a sneak peek at some of the behind the scenes work at Eustis ReStore,

Our two ReStore locations are opening up bigger and better than you’ve ever seen them. 

We can’t wait to show you all of the hard work the ReStore staff has been doing to prepare the Eustis and Leesburg ReStores for re-opening, with the health and safety of you in mind!

Important Things to Know:

  • Follow us on Facebook! Our official Grand Re-Opening date will be announced soon
  • Donation drop-off will resume on opening day at the Eustis and Leesburg ReStores
  • Free donation pick up will resume scheduling on opening day, throughout our service area (including Wildwood and Groveland!)
  • Health and safety procedures will be in place so you can donate and shop at our ReStores while keeping the community safe

Look For:

  • A new D.I.Y section to inspire your next project
  • Feature items- generators and DeWalt lights- just in time for hurricane season!

 

Our ReStores are vital to our mission of building homes, community, and hope. We believe that everyone deserves a decent and affordable place to call home and when you donate and purchase items from one of our ReStores, you make it possible for Habitat Lake-Sumter to build and repair homes for families in Lake and Sumter counties.

We can’t wait to see you again!
