Homeowner Stories

The homeowners we serve tell our story like no one else can. Since 1986, our affiliate has been changing the lives of low income families in Southeast Metropolitan Atlanta. From a young couple working two jobs and raising children, to a senior adult hoping to gain the security and stability of owning a home for the first time, our Habitat partner families continue to live out the legacy of our donors, volunteers, and  sponsors.

“The life skills that this organization gave me and the training that prepared me to be a better homeowner are priceless.  Pray about it and if you’re really ready to make that change, come ask Habitat for a hand up, not a hand out.”

“I never thought that I would own a home, so this is a dream come true for me and my family”. Renee served in Korea and First Desert Storm.

“Partnering with Habitat has been such a blessing to me.  The staff at Southern Crescent Habitat have become my “family”.  They have been so supportive and encouraging.  The classes they provide new homeowners ensure they have the tools necessary to maintain  those homes physically and financially.  I can’t tell you how it feels to be able to have my own home and it wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the group at Southern Crescent Habitat.”

“There are no words to express my gratitude and thankfulness to Habitat and the volunteers for their sacrifice for me and my children”.

Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity has given my family the hope to press forward in life knowing that we will have a home to live in where we will not have to struggle. It means that our children will no longer have to switch schools every 12 months because our lease is up in an apartment.

“The entire process has been nothing short of amazing. I feel truly blessed; not only to become a homeowner, but also to meet people who are dedicated to this ministry. Habitat for Humanity is not a hand out, but a hand up. I’m grateful.”

“Habitat has given my children, my beautiful angels, a wonderful dream of being able to have the resources to enjoy things like a trampoline or a pool to have a happy childhood without worrying if the gas or electricity will be cut off or maybe not having gifts under the Christmas tree.”
