Kobus Appelgrijn, director of West Pasco Habitat for Humanity and 2018 Small Machine. Big Impact. Finalist, wants his chapter to have an even bigger impact on his community. For 25 years, the chapter has partnered with many families to help them build and own simple, decent,
affordable homes. But those projects helped only one family at a time. Appelgrijn thought, what if we were to transform an entire neighborhood? So with the support of Pasco County Commissioners, the chapter began buying up dozens of homes on Leisure Lane, a rental area that’s
declined over the years. These homes will be demolished and rebuilt, revitalizing the neighborhood and improving the community.
