The Four Pillars of Support

Habitat for Humanity of Georgia is a state support organization representing Habitat affiliates across Georgia. 

Since 1976, Habitat affiliates in our state have:

-Rehabbed or built over 5,055 new homes and made repairs to an additional 380 houses

-Served a total of approximately 5,435 hard-working families in need who contribute “sweat equity” and monthly payments

-Generated a combined economic impact of $2.6 billion in construction activity

-Generated an estimated  $420,000 in sales tax revenue to the state of Georgia from Habitat for Humanity ReStores that provide families and the larger community discounted items for home repair and furnishings.

The State Support Organization's four pillars of support are
  • Advocacy & Awareness
  • Disaster Preparedness
  • Resource Development
  • Training/Networking

Habitat for Humanity has built, repaired, rehabbed, or improved 500,000 homes since 1976 and was the sixth-largest builder of homes in the United States in 2010.

What we build

We work in partnership with God and people everywhere - from all walks of life - to develop communities. We build and renovate houses, revitalize communities, and help those in need so they may have decent homes in decent neighborhoods. Homeowners give back to Habitat through their own sweat equity and repayment of low-interest or interest-free mortgages. They give back to the community through payment of property taxes and purchases of goods & services necessary to maintain their homes.
