A Message From our Executive Director
Gwinnett Habitat is proud to announce that we are now Gwinnett/Walton Habitat for Humanity. We recently merged with the Walton County Habitat affiliate and are now serving families in Walton County.
There are two main reasons for this strategic expansion. First, the existing all-volunteer affiliate was considering closing and asked for our help. We want to make sure that families in Walton County who need affordable housing and home repairs are able to receive them. Secondly, we desired to expand our service area into Walton County because of the increased access to affordable land for building. We currently have two buildable lots in Monroe and are closing soon on an additional lot.
We are excited to begin building in Monroe in September. We have also recently completed our first ABWK home repair project and identified several additional families in the area that are in need of home repairs. Several groups have reached out to support our efforts. I would like to thank Grace Monroe Church, Hope Monroe, the Monroe City Council, and the Walton/Barrow Board of Realtors for reaching out to help. Hope Monroe, a non-profit housing organization, has offered to match donations toward our fall build up to $10,000. Also, we welcome Tyler Gregory, Monroe City Councilman, who has just joined our board of directors.
We are so grateful for the warm reception we are receiving and can’t wait to serve more families in Walton County. Help us get the word out to your friends and family that live or work in this area. If you would like to help with this new effort, just check out our website or give our office a call. Together, we are building strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter for families in Gwinnet and Walton Counties. Thanks for being a part of our growing team. God bless.
Rev. Brent Bohanan
