Home to 83 families, Carson Lakes was the first Habitat subdivision completed in Collier County. Construction of these homes lasted from September of 2000 through 2004. The community is built on two scenic natural lakes, located at the end of Carson Road in Immokalee.
Prior to building Carson Lakes, Habitat Collier worked exclusively on scattered lots throughout Immokalee. This community marks a milestone for the organization, as the first step toward a new era of development. Since building Carson Lakes, Habitat Collier has completed nine other Habitat communities in Collier County. While Habitat continues to build on scattered lots throughout Naples and Immokalee, purchasing larger plots of land to build multi-home communities allows the organization to better leverage donor dollars, more efficiently use volunteer labor, and ultimately, build more affordable homes for the area workforce.
Families who live in Habitat for Humanity neighborhoods have the benefit of a close-knit community with neighbors who have built bonds on the job site before their homes were even built. Children always have someone who lives nearby who they can play with and make memories that will last a lifetime. Most importantly, parents are able to rest assured each night that their family lives in a safe community alongside other parents who all simply want the best for their children.
