Integrity. Our reputation is our greatest asset, and our decisions and all actions must reflect that. We strive to be honest, fair, transparent, and accountable in all we do.

Safety. Every staff member and each volunteer is personally responsible for creating a safe work environment at our facility and our job sites.

Community Leadership. We are proactive about serving our homeowners and the communities where we build every day, and we strive to advance the success of affordable housing initiatives in metro Atlanta.

Careful Stewardship. We recognize that we are able to accomplish our mission only through the generosity of others. We strive to protect and leverage all resources — human, natural, and financial — to create value, exceed goals, and eliminate waste.

Excellence. We actively set and communicate high expectations for the quality of work and results we require from every staff member, homeowner, board member, and volunteer who works with Atlanta Habitat. We strive to set the bar high and challenge the status quo every day.

Teamwork. We strive to communicate well with each other, break down silos, and apply consistent standards and expectations across our organization. We treat each other with dignity, respect, and sensitivity, and we value all who work in our community.

Empowered Employees.We are intentional about creating and providing an environment in which employees are supported to do their best work.
