Creative WritingWrite AboutWHOM YOUADMIRE MOSTI admire my sister, Shareese, because shehas made a big difference in my life. She hasshown me that hard work and determinationcan bring on good things.Three years ago, Shareese did somethingthat I know wasn’t easy. She became an AtlantaHabitat homeowner. You have to meet certaincriteria for Atlanta Habitat and actually helpbuild the house. She put in a lot of sweatequity to provide a better place for us to live.She did it for our family, which includesmy sister Shareese and her kids, Chantell andDemarcus, and me. Shareese adopted mewhen I was 12 years old; she was only 24.People might have thought she was too young,or that she already had her hands full as asingle mom with two young kids, but she wasdetermined to succeed and that made a realimpression on me. I saw first hand that if youreally want something and work for it, you canget it. Being together as a family is really great.But, in the beginning, we shared a smalltwo-bedroom apartment in a bad neighborhood.Because of my surroundings, I hada hard time in school. I cut classes and mygrades suffered. Things changed, though,when Shareese qualified for Atlanta Habitat.We moved to a new neighborhood. I hadmy own room. Almost immediately, I felt apositive improvement in my life. I joined thefootball team at my new school. I made newfriends. I even got an A in English. Shareeseteased me and said it was a miracle, but shealso said she was really proud of me.I just graduated from high school and I haveplans to go to college this fall. If someone hadtold me that a few years ago, I might not havebelieved them. I’ll miss our house and ourneighborhood and, most of all, I’ll miss mysister. But I want to show her that she’s taughtme a lot and that she’s set a great example.I admire her for all that she’s done to makesure that I am set up to have a bright future.Shareese and Jesse, her brother, along withher children, Chantell and Demarcus, movedinto their Atlanta Habitat home in August 2002.3

ArtESIGN AN ATLANTAABITAT HOME(Use The New Architectural Standards)With every Atlanta Habitat home we build, werestore a family’s confidence and a neighborhood’svacant lots. Weed-choked, abandonedproperties turn into tidy lawns borderingfreshly painted houses, bringing new vitalityto sometimes weary communities.You would think we would be content.But we continue to expand our homedesign portfolio, adding interesting rooflinesand ornamental details that add character andindividuality. We also want our homes toblend well with other homes in the neighborhood.This new architectural programearned us recognition for Superior Designin 2004 from the Georgia Department ofCommunity Affairs.4

Homework. The very word conjures up the subjects illustrated in this annual report, which correlate readily to theactivities of Atlanta Habitat. We work to assist Atlanta’s low-income families in building beautiful and efficienthomes while instilling the pride of homeownership and improving the neighborhoods where they live.Atlanta Habitat for Humanity continues to do its homework, with many behind-the-scenes tasks happeningevery day. Yes, we are a construction company. But did you know that we are also a mortgage banker, an educator,the operator of a retail store, a real estate acquisition group, and an advocate for better housing?Over 100 House Sponsor groups from the corporate, civic and faith communities provided $2.6 millionin funding and nearly 100,000 hours of volunteer labor to build 45 new houses and renovate seven Habitat IIhomes in 2004. True to our mission, 46% of these homes were built in partnership with congregations frommetro Atlanta’s churches, mosques and synagogues.Creative partnerships characterize these efforts. For example, six of last year’s new homes were builtthrough a unique partnership with the Annie E. Casey Foundation and the Pittsburgh Community ImprovementAssociation. The Casey Foundation challenged Atlanta Habitat to secure gifts totaling $220,000 to augmentits commitment of $200,000.In 2004, we focused on enhancements to house design and construction and expanded our homebuyeroutreach strategy and education programs.Our efforts to build quality homes that are attractive as well as affordable were recognized by specialawards. We received a Special Achievement Award for Superior Design from the Georgia Department ofCommunity Affairs. And, Southface honored Atlanta Habitat with its Nonprofit Builder of the Year Award forour commitment to EarthCraft certification and our leadership in the green building community.Outreach to potential homebuyer applicants was significantly expanded in 2004 through a grantearmarked to reach Atlanta’s growing Hispanic population. Eleven percent of last year’s homebuyerscame from the Hispanic community, deeming this outreach initiative a huge success. Atlanta Habitat hasalso established strong relationships with the Latin American Association, the Hispanic Health Coalitionof Georgia and the Consumer Credit Counseling Service, which will serve us well as we continue to spreadthe word about homeownership opportunities.Atlanta Habitat is unique among Habitat affiliates nationwide in requiring all new homebuyer families toparticipate in a year-long education program. During their first year, homebuyers must attend monthly workshopson topics such as budgeting and financial planning, home maintenance and repair, and civic involvement.Two recently created partnerships are allowing Atlanta Habitat to better serve our homebuyer families.Money Smart, an FDIC financial education program for adults, is now offered to all of our homeowners throughthe DeKalb County Extension Service. Additionally, King & Spalding LLP offers pro bono estate planning servicesto all Atlanta Habitat homeowners to assist them in preparing for their families’ futures.If you ever wondered how our homebuyer families feel about our organization, we have some excitingnews to share. In a survey of families spanning all of Atlanta Habitat’s homebuilding, 92% reported a positiveeffect on their overall quality of life, 98% had a positive experience building their home, and 99% have or wouldrecommend Atlanta Habitat to other prospective homebuyers. These statistics motivate us to continue doingour homework, and we hope they inspire you, too.We at Atlanta Habitat continue to be grateful to the caring spirit of our donors, sponsors, and volunteersfor supporting responsible, working families and, in turn, strengthening the fabric of our community. Thank you.Linda Arnold ParrishChair, Board of DirectorsLarrie D. MartinPresident and Executive Director7
