DeKalb Habitat (HFHD) is an official county affiliate of the Habitat For Humanity International (HFHI). We are located in Tucker, GA servicing the DeKalb County area.


Habitat for Humanity – DeKalb seeks to put God’s love into action, by bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope.


We envision a world where everyone has a decent place to live.


We are funded through sponsorships and donations from churches, corporations, and individuals; and funds are used as designated by donors. We currently operate with an Executive Director and small staff, supported by a volunteer Board of Directors and many volunteers.

In DeKalb County, a full-time worker earning minimum wage can’t afford current market rent for a two-bedroom apartment - let alone buy a home.

We’re working to change that.

Home Build

Inside the home, the engineered wood flooring (donated by RW Supply + Design) was installed and it looks beautiful.

On the outside, the land is being leveled and prepped for mulch, turf seed, and flowers to be added by Roots Down. We are excited to see the finished result!

Shirley and Albert have been living in their home for 33 years. Since 1990, their home has seen children, grandchildren, many holidays, and continues to witness their marriage. In order to see many more years of memories, Shirley and Albert received several critical + aging in place repairs.

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.
