Veterans Build

Veterans Build Program at Dekalb County Habitat for Humanity.

Honoring Veterans, Building Homes, and Strengthening Communities

At Dekalb County Habitat for Humanity, we are dedicated to honoring the service and sacrifice of military veterans by providing them with opportunities for affordable homeownership, critical home repairs, and meaningful camaraderie-building events. Our Veterans Build Program is a testament to our commitment to empowering veterans and their families.

A Legacy of Service and Support

We recognize the invaluable contributions of veterans to our nation’s history and are proud to stand in solidarity with them. Our Veterans Build Program is more than just constructing homes; it’s about honoring veterans’ service, creating sustainable homeownership opportunities, and fostering a sense of community and belonging.

Our Mission in Action

Through partnerships with military service members, veterans, and their families, Dekalb County Habitat for Humanity is actively addressing the urgent need for affordable housing. Our “hand-up, not a hand-out” approach empowers partner families to invest their sweat equity hours in building their homes and volunteering with us, creating a sense of ownership and pride in their communities.

Get Involved

We invite veterans, active-duty service members, and community members alike to join us in our mission. Whether it’s swinging a hammer on a construction site, participating in a home repair project, or attending one of our camaraderie-building events, there are many ways to get involved and make a meaningful impact.
