Key Biscayne hero Ann
Moran wants nothing more
than to ensure that as many
underprivileged families as
possible in Miami have a place
they can call home.

Habitat For Humanity of Greater Miami
3800 NW 22nd Ave., Miami, FL 33142
Q: Tell us about your role with Habitat for
Humanity. A: “I became involved with Habitat when my husband
and I lived and pastored in Houston. When we moved to
Key Biscayne in 1998, I volunteered assisting with the
actual construction while recruiting friends to support the
organization financially. In 2008, I was invited to come on
to the Board of Directors. Today, I help recruit companies,
interview candidates for homes and volunteer on the builds
along with my husband and children.”
Q: What is the most fulfilling part of giving back?
A: “I love working on builds along with prospective home
owners and seeing their excitement as their house goes up.
Habitat communities change the lives of the homeowners
by allowing them to actually purchase a home interest-
free. This changes the attitude of their entire families as
they see what possibilities are within their reach to pull
themselves out of the poverty cycle and move ahead to
self-sufficiency and a better life. Habitat communities also
assist in changing the culture of the neighborhoods that
are created by these responsible homeowners.”
Q: How can we help?
A: “Individuals and businesses can assist in sponsoring
a home build or sending a group of volunteers for a day
on a build. Construction and landscaping materials can be
donated. Monetary donations drive the number of builds
we can do yearly. Plots of land can be donated to the
organization for a build. What gets the juices flowing is
to visit a Habitat build, talk to a homeowner and see the
difference we make in the lives of Miami-Dade residents!”
