Building Dreams on Giving Tuesday!
Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit housing ministry dedicated to providing low to moderate income families an opportunity to become successful homeowners through a program of education and support, interest-free lending, and volunteer-driven construction.
Today, 1 in 6 families spend at least half of their income in rent or mortgage, often choosing between paying for housing or purchasing food. When you add being a single parent and medical care to the equation, you get the story of Fatoumata Kankarafou. Fatoumata is a West African immigrant that was introduced to Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity while taking her oldest son, Samuel, to the Marcus Autism Center for behavioral therapy. She was raising four boys in a 2 bedroom apartment.
Our nation is facing an affordable housing epidemic! At Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity we are doing our part to help low income families find opportunity, achieve stability, and improve their futures. While we are currently building homes and hope in the South Metro Atlanta area, we need your help to make our efforts go further.
With your support, not only will we be able to build a home for Fatoumata and her boys, but you will be a solution in the housing crisis.
Giving Tuesday is December 3, 2019 and we’d love you to join our mission as a #dreambuilder to ensure everyone has a decent place to call home.
