Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity builds 200th home in South Metro Atlanta

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LOVEJOY, GA [September 25, 2017] — Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity (SCHFH) celebrated and dedicated the homes of its latest five homeowners, Ashley Buffington, Melisa McKoy, Toni Tayborn, Ashley Patterson, and Sheneshia Anderson on September 23, 2017. The construction of these five homes marks 200 homes built by the organization.

These homes were all funded by the Home Depot Foundation and the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation and are the first homes in a planned 28-home Habitat for Humanity community called Hannah Springs in Lovejoy, Georgia. Pastor Jared Newlove of Antioch Baptist Church blessed the homes, and a breakfast was generously donated by the Jonesboro Dwarf House Chick-fil-a. Councilwoman Mary Ann Carp of the city of Lovejoy welcomed the group and completed the countdown to the ribbon cutting. Brecca Johnson, Assistant Director of Clayton County Community Development represented Clayton County and spoke of their support of workforce housing.  Additionally, one Habitat home was open and furnished by the McDonough ReStore for a public tour.

Since 1986, Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity has been building and rehabbing affordable homes for low-income families in Clayton, Henry, and Fayette counties in South Metro Atlanta. Southern Crescent Habitat homes and neighborhoods are located in cities all around the area such as Forest Park, Riverdale, McDonough, College Park, and Jonesboro. Habitat homeowners make between 30 and 80% of the area’s average median income. They must pay a monthly affordable mortgage and contribute 250 hours of “sweat equity” in the construction of Habitat homes, in addition to taking 50 hours of home maintenance and financial literacy courses so they are prepared to pay for and maintain their homes.

“As we celebrate our 200th home, we must also remind ourselves why we do what we do.  Homeownership is one of the most stabilizing forces in a community.  It is good for our families, our community, and our economy.  The families we support do the jobs that support our quality of life and support our society. The homeowners with whom we are celebrating, are absolutely part of the economic backbone of our community. Ashley Buffington is a pre-K teacher, Toni is a caseworker at the Salvation Army, Ashley Patterson is an account specialist at a wholesale producer, Melisa is a produce manager at Wal-mart, and Sheneshia is a certified nursing assistant,” said Cynthia E. Jenkins, CEO of Southern Crescent Habitat. “Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity works with families to bridge the gap to homeownership.  The families work.  They invest their time through 300 hours of sweat equity, take homeowner education classes and invest their finances to realize the dream of homeownership.  We provide the connection for our community to partner with them.”

Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity will begin construction on the next five homes in the Hannah Springs community this October. These new homes will be funded by the Clayton County Neighborhood Stabilization Program, Clayton County Home Partnership Program, and the Clayton County Community Development Block Grant. If you would like to volunteer to help build affordable housing, please contact Southern Crescent Habitat at development@schabitat.org.

PRESS RELEASE 

Wells Fargo Commits to Rebuilding Neighborhoods in South Metro Atlanta with Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity

Jonesboro, GA [January 9, 2017] – The Wells Fargo Housing Foundation Priority Markets Program has granted $80,000 to the revitalization and rebuilding of neighborhoods in South Metro Atlanta with Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity.

Since 2011, Wells Fargo Housing Foundation has committed over $300,000 towards Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity’s housing initiatives. Specifically, the Foundation has helped Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity launch its home repair program and supported home repair projects in Clayton and Henry County.  To date, Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity has served over 130 families through this home repair program.

The Wells Fargo Housing Foundation Priority Markets Program’s new grant will fund Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity’s Neighborhood Revitalization initiative, an approach to community development that addresses the needs of entire communities rather than Habitat’s traditional model of individual households.

Through its Neighborhood Revitalization initiative, Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity partners with local residents, community groups, housing leaders, and local businesses to transform neighborhoods and enhance residents’ quality of life. Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity first implemented the program in 2011 in the Normandy neighborhood of College Park in Clayton County, where they have completed over 20 projects including community gardens, home repairs, a live mural painting, community clean ups and safety walks after surveying residents on what issues mattered to them most. Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity will use these new funds from Wells Fargo to spread their Normandy-proven Neighborhood Revitalization model to other South Metro Atlanta areas.

“We value the partnership with Wells Fargo,” said Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity Development Manager Trisha Pintavorn. “Their sustained commitment shows they care about our communities and quality of life. We truly cannot thank them enough for helping us fulfill our mission of building homes, community, and hope.”

In 2014, the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation donated nearly $20 million in support of affordable housing initiatives serving low to moderate-income households – including for seniors, veterans, and families – through community revitalization efforts. Since its inception in 1993, the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation has invested more than $150 million to such efforts, along with mobilizing more than 4.6 million team member volunteer hours to build and rehabilitate more than 5,500 homes and counting.

Delta Flight Attendant Designs Home for Habitat Family

Delta Air Lines Flight Attendant Designs Habitat Home In Honor of Late Husband

JONESBORO, GA (September 23, 2015) –When Darren and Chatara applied to become Southern Crescent Habitat homeowners, they knew it would be challenging.  They had to each work 250 hours on their home and other Habitat projects, complete 50 hours of education classes, and care for their four little girls.  Additionally, Southern Crescent Habitat had to design a floor plan large enough to accommodate their family size.

An opportunity arose when Ms. Lauretta Griffin decided to donate her property to SC Habitat.  The size was perfect for a four bedroom home, and Delta Air Lines was going to sponsor it, Habitat just needed someone to create it.  Delta Air Lines flight attendant, Kim Mills-Smith had volunteered for the Delta sponsored builds for years.   In honor of her late husband, Jeffrey Scott Smith, who was a custom home builder, Kim became a house lead and worked on many homes, always sharing helpful suggestions for improving the plans.  With that in mind, Habitat employee, Terry Chapman, asked if she would like to design a new plan just for Darren & Chatara.  Kim was overjoyed and honored to be selected and created a beautiful plan she named “The Scottie” after her husband.

On September 8, 2015, Delta Air Lines kicked off the 27th sponsored build with Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity and began building “The Scottie”.  “Since 2004, Delta Air Lines has been a sponsor with Southern Crescent and has made a tremendous impact in the lives of many deserving families,” said SC Habitat CEO Kem Kimbrough.  This home will make a huge difference for Darren, Chatara and their girls.  “This is the light at the end of our tunnel,” said future homeowner Chatara.

During the kick off, previous owner Lauretta and her family wished Darren and Chatara many happy memories in their home just as they had for so many years.  The origin of the new floor plan created by Kim was shared and the significance of why it was called “The Scottie”.  It was a very special day for everyone to see what can happen when good deeds become blessings for others.  Southern Crescent Habitat is grateful to Delta Air Lines for their generous sponsorship, Lauretta for donating her property, and to Kim Mills-Smith for sharing her love of helping others in such a memorable way. The build will continue through Friday, September 25, 2015 at which time the home will be blessed and dedicated for the family.

Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s team up for National Women Build Week

JONESBORO, GA (MAY 2, 2015) –  Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers were among more than forty volunteers to join Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity today to help build affordable housing in the Austin Meadows Subdivision of Lovejoy in recognition of National Women Build Week, May 2-10.

Volunteers worked to paint the interior and exterior of the home, install interior trim and complete the landscaping.  This is home number 6 in the Habitat community of Austin Meadows. We were so grateful to have skilled workers from Lowe’s to volunteer the very first day of this build and raise the walls, and now to finish it today by completing the final touches, said Jeni Klippel, Construction Manager for SCHFH. New homeowner Tamara will be starting her new journey thanks to Lowe’s and all of the volunteers.

National Women Build Week is a weeklong event created by Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program that challenges women to devote at least one day to help build affordable housing in their local communities. Across the nation, more than 15,000 women are expected to volunteer at Habitat construction sites this week to spotlight the homeownership challenges faced by women.

Lowe’s helped launch National Women Build Week in 2008 and each year provides the support of Lowe’s Heroes and conducts how-to clinics at stores to teach volunteers construction skills.

“National Women Build Week has made a difference in the lives of thousands of families since its inception,” said Joan Higginbotham, Lowe’s director of community relations. “We’re grateful to all the women who got involved this week and were part of something bigger with Lowe’s and Habitat.”

Lowe’s donated nearly $2 million to this year’s National Women Build Week, including a $5,000 store gift card to Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity. National Women Build Week is one of the major initiatives supported through Lowe’s national partnership with Habitat for Humanity. Since 2003, Lowe’s has committed more than $63 million to Habitat and helped more than 4,000 families improve their living conditions.

Habitat Hosts Collegiate Challenge Week

JONESBORO, GA (March 6, 2015) – Emory and Henry College students will travel to Austin Meadows during their spring break to volunteer with Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity. The students will help build homes and improve the communities the week of March 9th as part of Habitat for Humanity’s Collegiate Challenge program.

“We are excited about Emory & Henry College coming to work with us at Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity,” said Chief Development Director, Lynne Washington. Shirley Chisholm once said, “Service is the rent we pay for the privilege of living on this earth”. “The service these young people are willing to give to a family in a different state speaks to the depth of their willingness to serve and help others have a new start, we couldn’t be happier and they are an example to all of us”, said Lynne.

The students will be working on Southern Crescent’s Interfaith Build which kicked off February 24, 2015 by a group of Clayton County High School students from Mt. Zion and Lovejoy. The call to end poverty is shared by the world’s religions, along with the conviction that decent housing for all is critical to achieving that goal. Interfaith groups come together in pursuit of a shared goal to put their faith in action. Other groups that will be participating in the build include the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta, Destination Church, Knights of Columbus, Tau Alpha Delta, Klassy Kreation and more.

Habitat for Humanity’s Collegiate Challenge program invites students to spend one week working with Habitat affiliates to build homes and improve communities. Since 1989, nearly 240,000 college and high school students have volunteered during their spring break to help build or rehabilitate homes, donating over $25 million to Habitat affiliates.

“Collegiate Challenge engages thousands of students each year who work diligently towards improving communities and building decent, affordable housing,” said Mark Andrews, Habitat for Humanity International’s vice president of volunteer and institutional engagement. “We’re grateful to them for supporting our mission and help families realize their dream of home ownership. Communities will benefit from their hard work for years to come.”

The Collegiate Challenge program is one of the many programs Habitat has to engage the next generation of leaders in Habitat’s work. For more information, visit http://www.habitat.org/youthprograms/collegiate-challenge.

Habitat Puts Their Faith Into Action

(Jonesboro, GA) On Tuesday, February 17, 2015, at 8:30am Habitat invites you to celebrate the kick-off of an Interfaith Build at Austin Meadows in Lovejoy.  Mt. Zion High School will be raising the walls that they constructed in their classroom and will get to see the impact of their hard work.  Jeni, a single mother with 2 children, who is a flight attendant and part time fitness instructor will get to see the first walls put up in her new home.  Churches and civic organizations from all of Habitat’s service area have been invited to join this great event.

 

The history of the Interfaith build with Habitat began in 2006.  The Interfaith Forum of Habitat for Humanity International unanimously affirmed the call to end poverty that is shared by the world’s religions, along with the conviction that decent housing for all is critical to achieving that goal. The result was a commitment to mobilizing interfaith groups around the world in answer to our mission. Those that will be participating in this build include Mt. Zion High School, the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta, Destination Church, Knights of Columbus, Emory and Henry College, Tau Alpha Delta, Klassy Kreation and more.

Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity is first and foremost a housing ministry.  We welcome all religions to come together with mutual values in pursuit of our shared goal to help families in need.  With your help we can present a unified picture of “faith in action” to create a world where everyone has a decent place to live!
