Our Calhoun County Habitat affiliate was incorporated March 18,1993. Mr. Bill Wright was our first Executive Director and continued in that capacity until he retired in 2003. We started construction on our first house in 1994. This house was dedicated March 1995. Since then we have built 146 new homes through the support of businesses, individuals, Churches, foundations and the many volunteers.
How We Do It
Through volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations on money and materials, Habitat builds simple, decent houses with the help of the homeowner (partner) families. Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit, financed with affordable, no-interest monthly loans.
Our affiliate’s family selection committee considers the applicants’ level of need, their willingness to become partners in the Habitat program and their ability to repay the no-interest loan. Every affiliate follows a nondiscriminatory policy of family selection. Neither race or religion is a factor in choosing Habitat homeowner families.
Habitat and its Affiliates
Habitat is a grass-roots movement. Concerned citizens from all walks of life come together as volunteers to form a Habitat affiliate in their community. Fundraising, house construction, family selection and other key decisions are carried out by the local affiliates. HFHI headquarters, located in Americus, Ga., provides information, training, support and other services to Habitat affiliates worldwide.
Donations are used as designed by the donor. Gifts received by us that are designated to a specific building project are forwarded to that project. Any undesignated gifts are used where most needed. Our most recent audited financial statement is available upon request.
Volunteers are the heart of Habitat and we would not be able to fulfill our mission of eliminating substandard housing without the help and support of our volunteers. You don’t have to be skilled to volunteer, just simply willing to learn. If you have any questions about volunteering call our office to find out what opportunities are available for you.
