Every day, more and more families in South Metro Atlanta find themselves in a struggle to keep a decent roof over their heads.
Caught in a poverty cycle of unpredictable rent increases, overcrowded conditions, or lack of access to land and affordable financing, these families live with a constant burden of uncertainty, stress, and fear.
We believe that safe, decent and affordable shelter plays an absolutely critical role in helping families to create a new cycle, one filled with possibilities and progress. Affordable homeownership frees families and fosters the skills and confidence they need to invest in themselves and their communities. The outcomes can be long-lasting and life-changing.
At Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity (SCHFH) we help low income families find opportunity, achieve stability, and improve their futures. We build stronger families and neighborhoods through homeowner education which includes financial literacy and by partnering with donors and volunteers to construct attractive, affordable homes and to repair existing homes.
