Habitat for Humanity – DeKalb offers a variety of programs to serve DeKalb County. HFHD is best known for our Construction Programs. Through this, we build new homes (or renovate existing ones) in order to provide housing at an affordable cost to deserving families in DeKalb County. We complete several homes each year and take pride in providing safe, decent, affordable housing.
Another major program is A Brush with Kindness (ABWK), through which we provide Home Repairs to low-income and disabled seniors and veterans. We work on dozens of these projects each year, and are able to sustain the program through generous grants from numerous sponsors. Our goal is revitalize communities through ABWK and Neighborhood Revitalization programs to support residents of DeKalb County in having pride in their homes and neighborhoods.
Our program is for first time home buyers. We know that homeownership is a big step to take. We provide Classes in order to ease the transition into homeownership and provide education and support to our family partners.
