Millard Fuller, founder of Habitat for Humanity International, once said, “A house is something visible. It is a place in which to be. An address- in a neighborhood. It is the site where loved ones live. It is where children study, play, and grow. It is where friends and family come to visit.  Every person, every family should have at least a simple, decent place in which to live.” This began the foundation for Habitat’s goal of ending poverty housing around the world.

Dublin-Laurens County Habitat for Humanity partners with families in need within our service area to provide opportunities to own a home through its homeownership program. Families must have income between 30-60% of the area median income, have the ability to pay an affordable mortgage, and be willing to partner with us through sweat equity and participation in educational classes.

Being a homeowner is more than just having a roof over your head. Homeownership builds stability, strength, and self-reliance in the families with whom we partner. Children of homeowners receive better grades in school, develop fewer behavioral problems, experience fewer illnesses, and are more likely to graduate from high school and college. Family members, in general, have less stress and adverse health outcomes as well as improvements in mental health and physical safety. Research also indicates that families who own their own homes spend more time and money to improve their neighborhoods and take a more active role in the community. Habitat does not just build structures; they build dignity, hope, opportunity, pride, communities, health, and economic independence all which make a global impact.
