Jacksonville, Fla. – Habitat for Humanity of Jacksonville (HabiJax), one of the largest providers of affordable homes in Northeast Florida, recently received a $2.6 million investment from Northern Trust. Proceeds from this transaction will support HabiJax’s mission to serve more families in underserved communities with the construction of affordable homes. The sale of the security backed by 0% interest mortgages from HabiJax was completed with the assistance of Krambo Corporation.

“HabiJax has a tremendous 35-year history of creating safe and decent homes that remain affordable to Jacksonville families,” says Monte Walker, President and C.E.O. of HabiJax. “This partnership with Northern Trust enables us to continue securing land and building quality homes on the First Coast.”

Now more than ever, partnerships with Northern Trust and other organizations are crucial for Jacksonville families struggling with rising housing costs. According to a recent City of Jacksonville Critical Quality of Life Issues Committee report, Jacksonville has remained in the top ten metro areas in the nation for rental price increases since 2019.

Northern Trust has engaged with Habitat for Humanity in communities nationwide over many years through their commitment to sustainable, affordable homeownership.

“We recently celebrated our 50th year of doing business in the state of Florida, and in that time we have invested more than $50 million into local Habitat for Humanity organizations. Northern Trust is proud to partner with HabiJax to support families seeking to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through owning their own home,” said John Donahoo, Northern Trust Senior Managing Director of Northeast Florida.
