Atlanta Habitat for Humanity partners with working families, sponsors, and communities to build affordable, green, quality homes and to provide support services that promote successful home purchase and ownership.
As one of 1,500 U.S. affiliates of Habitat for Humanity International, Atlanta Habitat works primarily in the city of Atlanta and Fulton County to bring generous donors and hardworking volunteers together with qualified, working families. The result is dramatic, positive differences in the lives of family members and in neighborhoods.
We construct quality houses that are sold to homebuyer families through no-profit, no-interest loans. Homebuyers complete 250 sweat-equity hours and other requirements, pay for their homes and all upkeep, and maintain current payments on their properties.
With more than 30 years of experience fostering successful ownership
More than 40 staff members support the efforts of over 13,000 volunteers to raise funds, qualify homeowner applicants, build houses, provide administrative support, and much more. Outreach sessions and informational meetings inform prospective homebuyers about the qualifications and benefits of homeownership, while our extensive education program offers a wide variety of classes, 12 of which are required for homeownership. With more than 30 years of experience fostering successful ownership, we know the essential ingredient that promotes success is knowledge.
Our four-star rating by Charity Navigator is an affirmation of our intense focus on fiscal responsibility as we work to serve more parents, grandparents, guardians, and most importantly – children. Other than the income guidelines, applying for an Atlanta Habitat home is similar to applying for a conventional loan.
