What We Do

Habitat for Humanity is one of the most recognized and respected nonprofit organizations in the United States and world. Most people know that we build affordable housing for hard working low income families in Henry, Clayton, and Fayette County, but there’s much more to the Southern Crescent Habitat story.

Through homeowner education we prepare families for the life-changing experience of home ownership.

Through our innovative literacy initiative we help families gain an understanding of financial and computer literacy. Our reading initiative elevates the value of reading on grade level and develops increased reading skills for life. As our program expands we will include vocational and life skills education.

Through engagement, participation and sacrifice we help families work hard to achieve independence.

Through new home construction we partner with financial sponsors and hundreds of volunteers to build attractive, affordable and energy efficient homes. We don’t give houses away; We sell homes to qualified low income families and give them a 0% interest loan for up to 30 years.

Through our rehabilitation efforts, we transform foreclosed and vacant properties from eye sores to success stories.

Through critical home repair, we help existing homeowners improve their quality of life, save money on energy bills, and strengthen neighborhoods.

Through engaging people to serve and make a difference we help communities be stronger. We build bridges between government, businesses, churches, civic groups, schools and individuals who wants to join us in making a difference. We help neighbors to partner and serve in their own neighborhoods.

Our work is about people more than projects or houses. Our bottom line is making a difference in the lives of the people we touch—whether they are volunteers, staff, board members, community partners, vendors, or the people that live in a neighborhood we are working in. To us, people matter most.

We love what we do and think you might love it too! If you want to join us then let us tell you more about how you can GET INVOLVED and make a lasting impact.
