Griffin Area Habitat for Humanity is an independent non-government, non-profit affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International managed by its Executive Director, Mark Staples, and governed by its Board of Directors.
Habitat for Humanity International was established in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fullard in Americus GA. It is now a worldwide organization with one of its primary headquarters located in Atlanta GA.
The Griffin Area Habitat for Humanity has been in place for 30+ years and has partnered with 100+ families to build homes in the Griffin Area.
In 1984, a few years after his presidency, President Jimmy Carter participated in a work trip to New York City to help build Habitat houses. His world status standing provided a tremendous boost to the notoriety and popularity of Habitat for Humanity International. However, he has never been involved with the governance structure of Habitat.
No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve to have a decent life. We deserve to feel strength and stability day after day. We deserve to know we have the power to take care of ourselves and build our own futures.
At Griffin Area habitat for Humanity, this is what unites us. Through shelter, we empower. Our shared vision is a world where everyone has a quality place to live.
Because you, me, we – we’re all humans. And every single one of us deserves the opportunity for a better future.
