Mission & History

Our Mission

Atlanta Habitat for Humanity transforms communities by acting as a catalyst for neighborhood revitalization through education, innovative development, partnerships, and long term relationships with families.


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.
