Habitat News & Events

Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to helping low-income people realize their dreams of homeownership. See how we're making a difference.

If you’re looking for a reason to get out there and do more good, look no further. April has been named Global Volunteer Month as a time to bring people together to volunteer from across the world.

Registration now open for Women Build 2021, April 15-17. Habitat-Thrivent Faith Build Carpool Cinema to be held on April 24 featuring Moana!

While times are undoubtedly hard, there is hope on the horizon. Use April’s National Month of Hope as a reminder to be a light in somebody’s life this month, including your own!

When you feel good, you’re more likely to do good in the world and at work. Make sure you’re able to set boundaries to help improve your work-from-home life.

It's taken some time, but active construction is finally underway at 707 and 709 N. Georgia Ave. - the first two houses in our new Marshall Street Neighborhood.

You may not win the lottery tomorrow, or ever for that matter. But what we’re talking about is a different kind of ‘gold’ to make you feel rich in other ways. Check out these ways to feel fulfilled in your everyday life and to make each day golden.

There are those who enjoy crunching numbers, and those who would love to be doing anything else. With March underway and April just around the corner, you may be dreading a certain time of year that’s all but looming—tax time.

It’s impossible to put the best version of yourself out into the universe if you’re already starting at a disadvantage. Make sleep a priority and see the health benefits that affect your overall wellbeing.

Whether it’s doing something for you, your loved ones or members of your community, check out these ways to boost serotonin levels throughout these cold months.

Giving back your time as a board member is a fulfilling way to help make a difference for a cause that you love.

Late last month we celebrated the Worrells family with their Habitat Home Dedication - our 85th since 2001. And now we are preparing to move on to our next builds at 707 and 709 N. Georgia Ave.!

Giving back to the world starts with you. How will you focus on your mental health this week?

This year, instead of simply focusing on your loved ones, consider using February as a time to spread love all over your community. From small acts of kindness to lasting community connections, there are so many ways you can show love this month.

Helping others can provide a new sense of purpose that may have been dwindling as a result of the new way of life we’ve endured in 2020. So in order to breathe new life into 2021 and beyond, it’s time to look outside ourselves and focus on others.

The good you put out into the world will not only benefit the organization you’re volunteering with, but also will leave your family feeling good about the positive work you’ve accomplished together.

People in your everyday life may be struggling much more than you know. So what can you do to help?

Just when you thought the holidays were over, the season of giving has extended into 2021. Use this month as a time to put good vibes out into the universe and continue giving.

While there may only be a few days left, there’s still time to put forth your best effort in 2020. Close out the year with one of these five acts to end on a high note.

As we remember the Reason for the Season, may we all have the hope of Jesus Christ in our hearts as we head toward 2021, and may we be prepared to share God's love and build that hope within others.

Everything Habitat for Humanity does is guided by our vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Globally, Habitat for Humanity helps families build or improve a decent, affordable place that they can call home. While our work might look a little different in each of the 70 countries where we have a presence — based on local needs, styles, climate and materials — the elements that make a home “decent” are universal.

Harvard University’s State of the Nation’s Housing 2020 report, sponsored by Habitat for Humanity, arrives at an exceptional time for the U.S. The COVID-19 pandemic, outcry for racial justice and intensified storms and wildfires have seriously tested our nation, elevating housing insecurity, racial discrimination in housing and the critical link between health and home to front page news.

Four key findings from the report are particularly relevant to Habitat’s mission and advocacy efforts as we head into 2021.

While you’ve probably been looking ahead for quite awhile, it’s now time to think about how you’ll spread kindness and love in the coming year.

Giving back and spreading the love this holiday season is sure to make your friends, family and loved ones smile.

Whether donating money or time, giving back has been shown to make a positive impact that goes far beyond the initial act of giving.

Your donation can have an immediate & lifelong impact on a family!
