Griffin Area

habitat for humanity

Habitat is able to make housing affordable to low-income families because:
  • Houses are sold through a no-profit mortgage.
  • Individuals, corporations, faith groups and others provide vital financial support.
  • Homeowners and volunteers build under trained supervision.

where we build

Since its founding in 1976, Habitat for Humanity has built over 350,000 houses, providing shelter for more than 1.75 million people in nearly 90 countries.

​​who we serve

Homeowners are selected based on their need for housing, their ability to repay a mortgage and their willingness to work in partnership with Habitat.

​​Habitat does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity or any other difference.

​​How we work

​​who we are

Habitat affiliates work locally in communities around the world to select and support homeowners, organize volunteers and coordinate house building.

Griffin Area Habitat for Humanity has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.

​​All are welcome

Griffin Area Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. We are dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.  Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.

Habitat for Humanity International is a nonprofit, nondenominational Christian housing ministry.
