Georgia Gives Day- Habitat for Humanity MBC
Habitat for Humanity Milledgeville-Baldwin County is a nonprofit organization that helps families build and improve places to call home. We believe affordable housing plays a critical role in strong and stable communities. With the help of our generous donors and hard-working volunteers, we are able to help provide affordable housing and resources to those in need.
Milledgeville/Baldwin County (HFHMBC) was incorporated in 1994 and completed its first home in 1996. By 2002, 11 homes were completed and in 2018, the 19th house was built. We are currently in the process of planning a new Habitat home to be finished in the Spring of 2023!
In Georgia, 1 in 7 households spend more than half of their income on housing. The affordable housing crisis is dire and getting worse. We need your help to continue serving hard working Baldwin County residents seeking a hand up. Your gift today means families have a stable foundation on which to build a future & keep their house safe through home repairs for the elderly & disabled.
So far in 2021 we have had:
*2 wheelchair ramps built
*140 Habitat volunteers served the community
*523 volunteer hours
*2 neighborhood workdays
*2 homeowners paid off their mortgages!!
Habitat families are carefully pre-screened to ensure they meet the three primary criteria for home ownership: a need for adequate housing, the ability to pay for the home and a willingness to partner with Habitat by completing a minimum of 300 hours of sweat equity labor. The newly constructed homes are sold with no profit added, using a 20-year, zero percent interest mortgage and the monthly payments consist of the base mortgage amount, plus prorated escrows for homeowners insurance, county taxes and city taxes. Habitat administers the mortgages and works with partner families over the course of the loan.Habitat MBC is supported by donations from churches, businesses and individuals.
