With a philosophy of “a hand up, not a hand out,” a phrase coined by President Jimmy Carter, Habitat Forsyth makes it possible for local families to achieve strength and stability that comes from owning safe, decent, affordable housing.

Through partnering with Habitat, families are able to experience the joys that come with a home: the security of owning rather than renting; the comfort of knowing one’s neighbors and seeing children play in their yards; the stability of putting down roots in a community; and the long-term investment that helps build personal wealth.
