State Farm Partners With Habitat Collier to Invest in Communities
Naples, FL (February 20, 2022) —State Farm has awarded Habitat for Humanity of Collier County a grant of $5,000 to support their work building affordable homes in Collier County.
Through community outreach and community development grants and investments, State Farm reinvests in the communities they serve as a way of giving back and helping to strengthen neighborhoods. The State Farm’s Good Neighbor Grants focus on three areas: safety, education, and community development. As a top provider of affordable homeownership opportunities in Collier County, the local Habitat affiliate was chosen as the beneficiary of one of State Farm’s grants.
“State Farm’s continued partnership through their Good Neighbor Grants shows their commitment to giving back,” said Habitat Collier CEO Rev. Lisa Lefkow. “We’re proud to be able to partner with them to help make affordable homeownership possible for families in our community.”
While the lack of affordable housing has been an issue in Collier County for years, the recent surge in both rental and purchase prices has brought the need for affordable housing to new heights. The need for affordable homes is critical, and Habitat for Humanity of Collier County is one of the only resources available to serve that need.
The State Farm grant will underwrite the cost of construction of a family room in a new home in the Habitat neighborhood of Whitaker Woods, currently under construction in Naples.
