Our mission is to put God’s love into action, by bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope. DeKalb Habitat (DeKalb County, GA affiliate of HFHI) was incorporated in 1988 at the urging and with support of then DeKalb County CEO Manuel Maloof. DeKalb Habitat now has built or renovated 65 homes, serving about 450 people including about 200 children. We provide a Hand Up and not a Hand Out.  See our 2013-2014 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 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 the an opportunity to live in a decent and safe house in a community where they can live, work, and grow.
The first step in the path to Habitat home ownership 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.

“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.
