- Habitat For Humanity
A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Habitat for Humanity-North Central Georgia is an independently run and operated affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International covering North Metro Atlanta. Habitat for Humanity International was founded by Millard and Linda Fuller in 1976 in Americus, GA shortly after they returned from building homes in Africa. Two years later, friends of the Fullers’ started the first Habitat for Humanity affiliate in San Antonio, TX. Since its founding, Habitat for Humanity has built 500,000 homes around the world.
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
As the increasing need for affordable housing appeared in the North Fulton area, a group of people banded together to come up with a solution for this problem. Sixteen people decided that in order to create more affordable housing, the best option would be to start their own Habitat for Humanity affiliate. The first meeting of Habitat for Humanity-North Fulton took place at the Roswell United Methodist Church in May of 1992. With the help of Habitat for Humanity Atlanta and its skilled house leaders, the North Fulton group finished its first house on Thomas Drive on June 12, 1993. Two years later, the long road to affiliation led to the successful incorporation of Habitat for Humanity-North Fulton, Inc. in March 1995.
Over 100 Homes Built
In January 2006, the affiliates in North Fulton, Cherokee, Forsyth, and Dawson Counties merged to form Habitat for Humanity-North Central Georgia in order to greater address the housing need in our growing community of Metro Atlanta. Today Habitat for Humanity-North Central Georgia has built over 100 homes in North Fulton and over 240 throughout our entire area. We look forward to providing even more families “a hand up, not a hand out” for many years to come.
