Provide safe, decent, affordable housing for the residents of our community.
DeKalb Habitat homes are built primarily with volunteer labor and take place all over DeKalb County. Habitat build days, typically on Saturdays, are an opportunity to see our mission come to life as we put God’s love into action by bringing people together to build homes, community and hope.
Habitat builds offer abundant volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups on weekends and weekdays that range from the restoration of foreclosed homes to the construction of brand new houses. We welcome people from all walks of life to join us. Volunteers are involved in most phases of construction, even though many have no prior construction experience or building skills.
What Goes Behind a Habitat Build?
Our build days are led by experienced builders who serve as House Leaders. These House Leaders guide the construction work completed by volunteers who work together to provide a quality home for a deserving family.
The type of work volunteers do varies greatly in scope but can include siding, flooring, painting, and landscaping. Depending on the size of the project, construction can last anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. When everything is complete, the home will be dedicated to a family so that they can begin a new chapter of their life.
