Live Here. Give here.

Strength. Stability. Self-Reliance.

Years Giving Back
Volunteers Engaged

A DeKalb County where everyone has a home that provides the strength, stability and independence that families need.

We do not give away houses. Habitat homeowners pay an affordable mortgage, receive financial education, and help build their homes alongside volunteers.

Habitat for Humanity’s vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Our priority is to protect our staff, volunteers, and the people we serve during this time.

Habitat For Humanity ReStores

Habitat for Humanity ReStores accept donations of new and gently used home improvement items from individuals and businesses. We sell those items to the public at prices well below retail. The proceeds are then used to build Habitat homes with families in need in our community, and we do it all with the help of our wonderful volunteers. We need you to donate, shop and volunteer.
