35 years ago, we broke ground on our first Habitat home! Since that first home in Clayton County, many of our homeowners have paid off their mortgages and own their home – free and clear! They can pass along the wealth they’ve created to their own family.
Today, we are completing our 211th home, 214th repair project, and advocating for workforce housing throughout the South Metro Atlanta area. That is only possible because of your support! Your gifts have impacted thousands of individuals, giving them hope and building a community of neighbors – but there is still much work to do.
Habitat’s mission is that everyone has a safe, decent, affordable place to live. 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 Georgians seeking a hand up.
Your gift today means families have a stable foundation on which to build a future. Whether it’s fulfilling their dream of homeownership, keeping their house safe through our home repair program, allowing a senior to preserve their home by Aging in Place, or serving a veteran that fought for us – you have impacted thousands of individuals.
Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity builds affordable homes and completes home repairs for low-income families, who need a hand up, not a handout. Through education and financial literacy, families are prepared to be successful homeowners. By partnerships with volunteers and donors in Henry, Clayton and Fayette Counties, their mission of building homes, communities and hope is possible. Since 1986, we have built, renovated and repaired more than 400 homes. For more information, please visit us at www.schabitat.org.
