Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity- DeKalb brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. Habitat for Humanity- DeKalb  is an official Georgia county affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a global nonprofit housing and community development organization.  Incorporated in 1988 at the behest of former DeKalb County CEO Manuel Maloof, Habitat for Humanity- DeKalb provides affordable homes and services for over 70 DeKalb County families. The “hand-ups” provided throughout our affiliate’s 26 year history have resulted in economic impact in excess of five million dollars for DeKalb County.  See our 2013 Annual Report.
We envision a world where everyone has a decent place to live.  We seek to eliminate substandard housing and living conditions by partnering with a diverse array of individuals and organizations. Through this partnership, we are able to create a stable environment for low-income families where they may live, work, and grow.
The first step in the path to Habitat homeownership is to attend a Homeowner Information Session. The next session is to be announced.  Email Daniella Jackson for more information.

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.
Howard Stacy, Volunteer
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.
Anna Brechin, Tucker High School Chapter President
“Having the privilege of becoming a Habitat for Humanity homeowner is truly a blessing to me and my family…we finally have our own space…my children will finally be able to decorate their own room and be able to play in their own yard.”
Tosbia Martin, Family Partner
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.
