Mission & History

Our Mission

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.


How Our Mission Has Been Lived Out

Atlanta Habitat is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing and to making adequate, affordable housing a matter of conscience and action.  In 1983, a group of concerned and motivated individuals in Atlanta founded a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity.  Atlanta Habitat is now one of the largest affordable single-family housing developers in the city, and is one of the largest of 1,500 affiliates of Habitat for Humanity in the United States.
