Boca West Country Club Breaks Ground on New Habitat for Humanity Home in Delray

Boca West Country Club helped break ground last week on a new Habitat for Humanity home for the deserving Jackson family, natives of the area who had a long-time dream of being Delray Beach homeowners.  Boca West served as the Home Sponsor, along with the Knight Group and in partnership with the City of Delray Beach and the Delray Beach CRA.

The home, located at 242 NW 6th Avenue, is the 12th local Habitat for Humanity home sponsored by Boca West Country Club over the last 10 years, helping to provide affordable homes earned by a hard-working family.

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,” said Matthew Linderman, 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.
