Build Affordable Homes

Discover How We’re Building Affordable Homes for a Brighter Future.

At Dekalb County Habitat for Humanity, building homes isn’t just about construction—it’s about building communities, fostering partnerships, and creating opportunities for a better life. Here’s how we make it happen:

Community Collaboration: We bring together Habitat homeowners, volunteers, donors, and the broader community to construct not just houses, but vibrant neighborhoods. By working together, we create spaces where families can thrive and communities can flourish.

Sustainable Design: Our Habitat homes are thoughtfully designed to maximize space, comfort, and energy efficiency. As a green builder, we prioritize sustainability, taking a holistic approach to design and construction that minimizes environmental impact and promotes a healthy living environment.

Affordable Homeownership: We believe that everyone deserves a safe and stable place to call home. Through our homeownership program, families with limited incomes have the opportunity to purchase Habitat homes through affordable mortgages. By partnering with Habitat and participating in the construction process, families not only gain homeownership but also build strength, stability, and self-reliance for the future.

Partnership and Support: Together with future homebuyers, volunteers, and our dedicated community of supporters, we build sustainably, intelligently, and affordably. By offering more families the chance to achieve homeownership, we’re empowering individuals and strengthening our community as a whole.

Interested in Becoming a Habitat Homebuyer? Our homeownership program offers a pathway to affordable homeownership, where families help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. If you’re ready to take the next step towards homeownership, we invite you to learn more about our program and how you can become a Habitat homeowner.

Join us in building a brighter future for families in Dekalb County. Together, we can make the dream of homeownership a reality for more families and build stronger, more resilient communities.
