Habitat for Humanity works to fix up Washington Shores homes

Updated:

ORLANDO, Fla. - Habitat for Humanity is teaming up with central Florida volunteers to paint four homes near an up-and-coming community.

The new Washington Shores subdivision, called Butler’s Reserve, hasn’t broken ground yet.

Formally known as Malibu Groves, the subdivision will feature 59 affordable homes.

Project leaders said they want to help improve nearby neighborhoods before construction begins.

“We want not only to make a beautiful community, but enrich the surrounding community, and help preserve what already exists in this community,” said Jennifer Gallagher, with Habitat for Humanity.

Groundbreaking for Butler’s Reserve is slated for later this year.
