Congrats Graduates 2022!

Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity is building foundations to prepare families for the future through homeownership.

Southern Crescent Habitat’s Impact on our families


Growing up in a decent, affordable home can have a powerful effect on children. Studies draw a straight line between the quality, location, and affordability of housing and a child’s ability to thrive. Families who spend too much of their income on housing often must make critical trade-offs, including forgoing educational and enrichment opportunities for themselves and their children. Through our mission of bringing affordable, safe housing to families they are able to give their children these opportunities.

Not only are we celebrating homeownership month and the over 200 families that achieved their dream of homeownership through our program, but we celebrate our SCHFH graduates. Their educational achievements are a testament to the mission of Habitat and the hard work of our partner families. Congratulations to all of our ’22 graduates! This is only the beginning of your endeavors and we can’t wait to see what is in your future. The sky’s the limit!
