Habitat for Humanity of DeKalb County is a vital part of the global Habitat for Humanity network. Together, we envision a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to call home.

In DeKalb County, we work closely with local families facing challenges in securing affordable housing. Through our partnership model, families have the opportunity to build or renovate their own homes alongside volunteers. This process not only provides them with a sturdy and stable home but also fosters a sense of pride and independence.

At Habitat for Humanity, we believe in a hand-up, not a handout. Our homeowner families purchase the houses they help build or renovate, ensuring a sustainable approach to affordable housing solutions.

Our homeowners invest their own sweat equity into their homes, dedicating countless hours to construction alongside our dedicated volunteers. This collaborative effort makes Habitat homes truly affordable for low-income families, both locally and globally.

By supporting Habitat for Humanity financially, you can directly impact families in your community and beyond. Your contribution helps us continue our mission of building strength, stability, and self-reliance through homeownership.

Join us in making a difference in the lives of families in DeKalb County and around the world. Together, we can build a brighter future for everyone.


The generous donation of time from volunteers makes every dollar stretch farther for families in our community.
