Mission & History


An Atlanta where all people have access to quality affordable housing in safe, vibrant neighborhoods with opportunities to thrive.

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.


In 1983, a group of concerned and motivated individuals in Atlanta founded a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity to making adequate, affordable housing available to those who need it most.  Atlanta Habitat is now the largest nonprofit, 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.
