We envision a world where everyone has a decent place to live.  We seek to eliminate substandard housing and living conditions by partnering with God and people from all walks of life. Through this partnership, we can create a better environment for lower-income families as we strive to provide an opportunity to live in a decent and safe house in a community where they can live, work, and grow.

Why We Build!

Almost every Habitat project that I work on is a mental and physical challenge.  This helps keep my mind sharp and my body in good shape.

Being a part of Tucker Habitat means more to me than just building; it means I get to connect to my community, to my peers and to my friends in more ways than I ever knew possible.

When you have a home, you are free. You have freedom from the constraints of apartment living. You can have family and friends over, play music, plant a garden in your own yard.

Becoming a homeowner is perfect for me and my situation as a single mother with small kids. Habitat for Humanity DeKalb is doing a great job. Anything I could try to say to try to thank them would be too little.
