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.

A Message From Our Executive Director

This time of year is when we like to reflect on our year’s work and give thanks for all we have achieved due to your support. In fiscal year 2017, we served 36 families, which is the most families ever served by our affiliate in one year! Four families were welcomed into new homes and 32 households were served with home repair projects through our home preservation program, A Brush with Kindness. Many of these citizens are elderly or disabled and our program is crucial to their ability to age-in-place with dignity. We also recently completed and dedicated our very first veteran’s home in Sugar Hill (FY2018 project). A Veterans Build has been a long-time goal and we are so excited to finally achieve it and serve a very deserving veteran family.

Our impact is not possible without two vital things. First, your financial support which represents 62% of our income and for which 87% is spent directly on program costs and serving families. We greatly appreciate your financial support and will be accepting your tax-deductible gifts for 2017 through December 31st. Secondly, volunteers are key to our success. In FY2017, over 1,600 volunteers provided over 10,000 service hours. Your volunteered time and skills saved us over $100,000 in labor costs. In addition, you worked alongside our partner families and got to know them as they put in their sweat equity and worked hard to achieve self-reliance. We like to say that “Every Hand Makes a Difference!” Thank you for what your hands have done this past year to help us build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.

2018 promises to be another successful year with the construction of five new homes in Lilburn off Burns Road and our 30th Anniversary Celebration Event in April. Be on the lookout for more information coming soon. Thanks again for your continued support of our mission. Everyone at Gwinnett Habitat wishes you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. God bless.
