About Athens Area Habitat for Humanity:
Athens Area Habitat for Humanity, an independent affiliate of habitat for Humanity International, is an ecumenical, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the elimination of substandard housing in Clarke, Oconee, and Oglethorpe counties in the state of Georgia. Habitat builds simple, decent houses with the help of the partner families and sells them to qualifying families at no-profit and no-interest. Homeowners must repay the cost of building their home with no interest charge and 100% of the mortgage payments going towards the funding of future Habitat houses. Our organization was founded in 1988 based on our strong belief that everyone in the Athens community deserves the opportunity to own their own home. Since its inception, Athens Area Habitat for Humanity has served ofer 75 families in partnership with businesses and countless volunteers.
