Boca West Country Club Sponsors New Habitat for Humanity Home in Delray Beach

Boca West Country Club and the Knight Group partnered with the City of Delray Beach and the Delray Beach CRA to build a new Habitat for Humanity home in Delray Beach. Construction of the house began in July, which will be created for the Jackson family, who are natives of the area and have long dreamed of being Delray Beach homeowners.

De’Vonta Jackson and Myshayla Wilfork are a young married couple with four children, Za’nyah (11), De’Vonta Jr. (6), De’Layah (4), and De’Mani (10 months). Myshayla was born and raised in Delray Beach and works as a cake decorator at Publix. De’Vonta was born in Boynton Beach and grew up in Delray. He is currently in the market for a job and hopes to receive an offer soon.

“It is our honor to help the Jackson family achieve their dream of home ownership in partnership with Habitat for Humanity,” Matthew Linderman says, CCM, president, COO and General Manager of Boca West Country Club. “We have established a legacy of investing in community programs that have the power to change lives. Meeting this young family was so gratifying and we were very grateful to be a part of this.”

The Jackson family put in 600 hours of “sweat equity” working on their home throughout the construction process, along with Habitat volunteers. The family also met the Habitat homeowner requirements of attending workshops that address financial literacy, cleanliness and home maintenance, effective parenting, hurricane preparation, energy conservation and more.
