A world in which everyone has a decent place to live.
Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations will not proselytize. Nor will HFH work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with HFH. This means that HFH will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must adhere to, or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
A Message From Our Executive Director
Did you know that Habitat for Humanity provides homeownership, critical home repairs, employment and volunteer engagement opportunities to U.S. veterans, military service members and their families? Habitat’s Veterans Build officially began in 2013 in response to the grassroots Habitat efforts to serve the housing needs of returning veterans. Habitat is now empowering military and veteran families in over 100 communities to achieve strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves.
The National Low Income Housing Coalition finds that 2.5 million veterans heading households are at least 55 years of age. Of those 2.5 million veterans, 24 percent have housing cost burdens. Unlike our older civilians, our older veterans are more likely to have a disability - 35 percent versus 28 percent - and are more likely to require home accommodations, health and other supportive services.
Gwinnett Habitat is proud to announce the plans for our very first Veterans Build. We are so excited to welcome a veteran into the Gwinnett Habitat family and for the opportunity to serve and honor them through our program. We are also excited about the new volunteers and sponsor groups that will be working on this project. We still have space for volunteers to serve on this project. If you would like to volunteer, you can sign-up here or contact Laura at our office (ext. 1010). Thanks again for your continued support of our mission as we begin helping veterans in our community to thrive.
