Sanibel Captiva Community Bank is proud to announce its home sponsorship with Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties. As a house sponsor, the bank is donating over $150,000 to support new home construction costs for a Lee County family in need of affordable housing.

“As a locally grown community bank committed to community support and improving the lives of Southwest Floridians, we believe in the transformative power of stable housing,” said Kyle DeCicco, president and CEO of Sanibel Captiva Community Bank. “By donating funds to build an entire Habitat for Humanity home, we want to provide not just a home for a local family, but also a foundation for a brighter future. We are proud to invest in organizations like Habitat for Humanity that create sustainable, positive impacts in our neighborhoods and empower families to thrive.”

Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties is a faith-based private nonprofit serving families with a housing need willing to partner on their housing and financial goals. As a developer, builder, mortgage lender, housing counseling agency, retail operator and hurricane recovery organization, Habitat partners with families to build, improve or retain places to call home. Since 1982, Habitat has partnered with more than 1,800 families to help them achieve their dream of affordable homeownership. In addition to putting in 300 hours of sweat equity into building their own homes, Habitat homebuyers contribute to their closing costs, attend more than 20 hours of financial education classes and pay an affordable mortgage set at no more than 30% of their monthly income.
