HANDS of Central Florida, Inc. was founded to assist Central Florida communities to increase the supply and availability of affordable housing, both rental and ownership. As a Community Housing Development Agency (Federally Approved Housing Developer), HANDS develops affordable single- and multi-family housing units. HANDS also offers homebuyer education and counseling services in group or one-on-one sessions.

HANDS owns over 800 affordable rental units in 3 central Florida counties, and builds annually 5 to 10 single-family affordable homes for sale on scattered lots.

With a revolving line of credit from FCLF, HANDS developed 6 single-family homes in Kissimmee for sale to low-income families. These homes emphasize attractive design features and high-quality construction.
