Atlanta Habitat is part of the SunTrust Financial Wellness Challenge. Help us raise $1,000 and the SunTrust Foundation will match between $1,200 and $2,500!

Atlanta Habitat for Humanity partners with working families, sponsors, and communities to build affordable, green, quality, energy-efficient homes and to provide support services that promote successful home purchase and ownership.

As one of 1,500 local affiliates of Habitat for Humanity International, Atlanta Habitat works primarily in the city of Atlanta and Fulton County to bring generous donors and hardworking volunteers together with qualified, working families. The result is dramatic, positive differences in the lives of family members and in neighborhoods.

We construct quality houses that are sold to homebuyer families through no-profit, no-interest loans. Homebuyers complete 250 sweat-equity hours and other requirements, pay for their homes and all upkeep, and maintain current payments on their properties.

More than 40 staff members support the efforts of over 13,000 volunteers to raise funds, qualify homeowner applicants, build houses, provide administrative support, and much more. Outreach sessions and informational meetings inform prospective homebuyers about qualifications and benefits of homeownership, while our extensive education program offers a wide variety of classes, 12 of which are required for homeownership. With 30 years of experience fostering successful transitions from tenancy to ownership, we know the essential ingredient that fosters success is knowledge.
