INDIAN RIVER COUNTY -- For the sixth time in the last seven years, Indian River Habitat for Humanity has been named Affiliate of the Year by Habitat for Humanity International.

HFHI recognizes affiliates in three categories - Small (less than 50,000) population; Medium (50,000-250,000); and Large (over 250,000). Indian River Habitat is in the Medium category, in which there are approximately 650 affiliates.

This award is based on total families served by the affiliate, both in its local area, Indian River County, and around the world.

According to Indian River Habitat CEO Andy Bowler, the local affiliate, during its 22 years in existence, has served a total of 372 families within the county through the construction of 287 new homes, the rehabbing of 39 existing homes, and the repair of 46 homes belonging to the elderly, the infirm and veterans.

"We have been truly blessed to have such a wonderful, dedicated support base of volunteers, donors, and staff, who, along with our deserving families, have made this award possible," said Mr. Bowler. "They have definitely helped us fulfill our mission of 'seeking to put God's love into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope."
