HABITAT FOR HUMANITY TO NAME NEW DEVELOPMENT IN HONOR OF MARK MOSS

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY TO NAME NEW DEVELOPMENT IN HONOR OF MARK MOSS

Habitat for Humanity of Key West and Lower Florida Keys is honoring late Executive Director, Mark Moss, by naming its newest development of homes “Moss Landing.”  Moss, who passed away February 13, 2018, was instrumental in the planning of the development.

Habitat’s current Director, Kristina Welburn, said “Mark Moss was an integral part of the Habitat for Humanity family for many years, serving as a volunteer, board member, construction manager, and Executive Director.

Mark was dedicated to the mission of creating affordable workforce housing in the lower Florida Keys as well as home renovation for low income seniors in our community so they could age with dignity in their homes.

We will be forever grateful for his years of service and his leadership and couldn’t think of a better way to honor his memory than to name our newest development after him.”

Moss Landing will consist of a total of 16 homes comprised of 8 duplexes and will be built on LaFitte Drive on Cudjoe Key.  The homes will be a mix of two and three bedrooms and will be of modular construction, similar to Habitat Landing on Big Pine Key and Bayside Landing and Loewy Landing on Big Coppitt Key. The first four homes have been delivered and the new partner families will be working on the homes as a part of their sweat equity requirements for the home purchase.

Habitat is not currently accepting applications for this project. If you are interested in applying for our home buyer program we encourage you to scroll down and enter your email to subscribe to our newsletter so that you will receive notifications for open application periods. 

The first duplex was delivered in April and will provide homes for two families.
