I believe that safe and affordable housing is a basic human right! We take our homes for granted and only appreciate its importance when we don't have access to it. My son and I recently overhead a child comment as they passed a Habitat house which we were helping paint by saying "Wow, that house is beautiful. I wish we lived in a home like that." Families that live in homes which they own are more likely to be healthier, happier, graduate from school and college and realize the American dream. Owning a home builds family wealth and is the foundation of a brighter future.
Join Coastal Empire Habitat for Humanity as we raise funds to build seven new Habitat homes in Chatham County in 2020!
We are an affordable housing ministry committed to partnering with local, hardworking families to realize their dream of owning quality, affordable and energy-efficient homes throughout Chatham County, GA.
How It Works
A family’s partnership with Habitat means they have a stable place to live and to spend time together. An affordable mortgage or small loan means they have a chance to create savings and invest in their education. A decent roof over their heads establishes home as a place that protects — instead of endangering — their health.
Habitat works with families to help them acquire the access, skills and financial education necessary for them to be successful homeowners. By partnering with us, families seize the opportunity and possibility that decent, affordable housing represents. Through shelter, we empower.
Upon completion, the house is sold to the partner family, who then pays a no-interest mortgage to Habitat Savannah.
Their monthly mortgage payment is added to other mortgage payments and donations to allow us to continue our mission of building safe, decent and affordable housing.
Why We Build
Your donation will fund the construction of Habitat homes in Chatham County, Georgia. We will send you updates on the funding and construction of the homes. You are also welcome to attend home ground-breaking ceremonies, dedication ceremonies and can even participate in a home build if you would like! You will receive email updates about these opportunities and will be able to see our progress throughout the year
