Board & Advisory Council

Board of Directors

Atlanta Habitat’s board members are volunteers who come from a variety of backgrounds with the resources, wisdom, and passion to lead in constructive, effective, and meaningful ways. The board of directors operates independently of Habitat for Humanity International and in accordance with its own set of bylaws.

The Atlanta Habitat board is charged with long-term planning and governance, as well as overseeing the organization’s interests and well-being. Within these broad areas, the board develops policy, sets strategic priorities, governs, oversees finances, and raises funds, among other activities.

The standing committees of the board are Executive, Development, Finance and Audit, Human Resources, and Nominating. Board members take the lead in fund-raising efforts and in conducting home dedications to recognize and thank sponsors and congratulate new homebuyers.
