dear valued donors, volunteers,

sponsors, partners, and friends,

“Built to Last.” It’s a simple concept, but just what does it mean in terms of

Atlanta Habitat? Certainly we build houses with long-lasting quality and an

eye to earth-friendly, EarthCraft construction. But, as a business with a heart,

we believe what we are truly helping to build are lasting success stories.



Homeowner criteria include working in the same job for at

least one year, a steady income for two years, a good credit history, and a

savings account of $200 for at least six months. (A candidate’s income must

fall between 25-60 percent of our area’s median income.)

Homeownership requirements include 250 hours of home construction sweat

equity and participation in at least 12 educational classes during the one-year

lease period.

Many in metro Atlanta associate our story with the wonderful homes we build, but, in

truth, the Atlanta Habitat story begins with our hard-working homeowners–individuals

who by their sheer drive and passion meet every one of our requirements and then

press on to fulfill the sweat equity labor and education class requirements that earn

them the opportunity to build and buy their home. Indeed, succeeding to become an

Atlanta Habitat homeowner takes real effort.

Once they move into their Atlanta Habitat homes, these families seem to generate

even more success. The sense of security and feeling of pride that come from an Atlanta

Habitat home strengthen these families. They thrive–and their ability to make lasting

contributions to their children’s futures, their neighborhoods, communities, and metro

Atlanta just seems to grow. With so many of our families, there is a desire to contribute

and help build a safer environment, more attractive properties, and more vital communities.

There’s a commitment to being involved and to continue improving places where they

live, work, and play.

So a positive, lasting evolution progresses – first from block to block, then

encompassing an entire neighborhood, and ultimately, benefiting our city and metro

area. That’s how “Built to Last” gets real meaning and becomes a holistic legacy for our

community of which we all can be proud.

When we define “Built to Last,” we see our homeowners’ sons and daughters

succeeding in the Armed Forces. We hear how one woman’s determination has resulted

in a neighborhood street being paved. Or we listen at a dedication ceremony as a father

looks to his six children and tells them that this home is, above all, for them.

The mission of Atlanta Habitat has always been to build affordable housing for working

families. Today, we are finding more ways to do just that. We are now joining forces with

other nearby Habitat affiliates and continuing to work with private developers. Atlanta

Habitat also is incorporating new housing solutions such as townhome communities.

The result is an exciting, larger, 10-county service area, a more diverse architectural

portfolio, and a greater opportunity to share our experiences and our resources. Now,

more environmentally conscious Habitat homes and more helpful homeowner education

classes can be available to more deserving people – security guards, health care

technicians, teachers’ aides, food service employees, and many more who work very

hard for their wages. No family should have to live in substandard housing, and as long

as they do in Atlanta and our surrounding communities, we will continue to ask for your

support–support you have generously given and for which we are most grateful. Used

wisely, your contributions ensure there will be more “Built to Last” success stories.

A Lasting Friend

When the mill closed in Atlanta’s Cabbagetown neighborhood, lots

of folks went elsewhere – but not Henrietta. She stayed. It was where

she was born and raised, and she wasn’t going anywhere. today,

Cabbagetown is where you still find Henrietta – still happy in her

Atlanta Habitat home, one of the earliest we built (1987). A strong,

resolute community leader, Henrietta works tirelessly for her

friends, including many hours at the Savannah Street neighborhood

House. the Savannah Street House offers a variety of programs

especially for limited-income seniors – meals, fun activities, and even

emergency assistance. Come by and you’ll no doubt find Henrietta

teaching her quilting class or just lending a hand. It’s something this

lasting friend has done for her Cabbagetown neighbors for more

than 25 years.

atlanta Habitat – HAnDS-on opeRAtIon

What we provide, we build. that’s because first and foremost,

Atlanta Habitat is a construction company – one with 26

years of experience and more than 1,000 homes under our

belt. We have a full-time architect on staff and trained construction

employees who oversee our corps of great on-site

One Last Project?

the trices’ Atlanta Habitat home was built as part of the Jimmy

Carter work project in 1988 – our first blitz-build – with 20 homes fin-

ished in just five days. But you might not recognize it today, as this

family, it seems, never runs out of improvement projects. the front

porch is now screened in. the front steps have been carefully bricked.

the driveway is longer and the backyard prettier. plus, just take a look

at some of their inside projects – a wonderfully successful daughter

who is now enrolled in nursing school; a second daughter serving our

country in the Armed Forces; and a son, out on his own working hard.

Are there more projects ahead? they have already paid off their mortgage

in full, but, if we could guess, we would probably say there are

other advances on the horizon. this family has enormous pride in

what they have already accomplished, and there will always, no

doubt, be one last project they undertake to make things even better.

atlanta Habitat – SolID ASSet mAnAGement

land in metro Atlanta is a precious resource, and as a successful

land developer, we carefully manage every acre we acquire or purchase.

We are real-estate savvy and understand the need to leverage our

property assets to generate the best return on investment.

At Long Last

In 2004, this lovely couple left their native Cambodia and

arrived in the u.S. without much more than their dreams. It’s

hard to believe that mom, Dad, and two young children could

live in two tiny rooms. But even harder still is to realize that

these cramped quarters had no kitchen. the goal, however, was

to sacrifice, save enough money to escape, and perhaps – just

perhaps – buy a home, even though such prospects looked

exceedingly dim. then one day, Atlanta Habitat entered the

lives of these American newcomers, and what seemed

impossible became probable, if they could complete the

homeowner requirements. Indeed, they did just that, and in

may 2009 the Chhlaing family moved into their brand-new

home in the Ben Hill community. A dream had come true, and at

long last, there was real room for a growing, thankful family.

atlanta Habitat – DISCIplIneD FInAnCIAl StRAteGIeS

At the end of 2008, we held no-interest mortgages on 772 homes, and

we carry out our role as lender within strict guidelines. Additionally, we

manage Atlanta Habitat finances with the first priority being to protect

the funds entrusted to us and to use them judiciously to build affordable

housing and provide support services for working families.

A Lasting Impression

longstanding chair of the mechanicsville Civic Association, chaplain for

Atlanta’s neighborhood planning unit v, on the board of the nonprofit

builder organization SummeCH, as well as a board member of the

Southside medical Center, choir director at the Grace evangelistic

ministries Church, and a valued member of the Atlanta Habitat

Homeowner Advisory Committee – that’s Sharon Collins, an unbelievable

woman who is making a lasting impression everywhere she goes. Sharon

grew up in mechanicsville and wanted to stay and help her community

move ahead. earning her Atlanta Habitat home in mechanicsville kept her

right where she wanted to be, and everyone knows her as the community

leader who gets things done. Bright, articulate, and focused, Sharon has

raised three exemplary sons who, she is proud to recall, never gave

her any trouble growing up, something she says is partially owed to the

safety and security of her Atlanta Habitat home. And what’s her last

word on being a successful homeowner? “you have to be a good neighbor;

speak and communicate with those around you.”

atlanta Habitat – Well-pRepAReD HomeoWneRS

Atlanta Habitat is a busy educator. We train our homeowners in

the basics of home maintenance, budgeting, landscaping, insurance,

fire safety, and more. In 2008, our Home Smart education

staff, including volunteer instructors, offered our homeowners

more than 1,000 hours in the classroom.

Lasting Success

For the Cardenas family, success didn’t stop when they earned

their Atlanta Habitat home. It has continued right through the next

generation with their three beautiful daughters accomplishing

their own goals. eva and Gaby both received full scholarships to

attend Clayton State university, and elizabeth, now an 11th-grader

at tri-Cities High School for the performing Arts, is studying ballet

under the famous dancer Bridget moore. mario also is helping

others find success with Atlanta Habitat by volunteering as one of

our organization’s ambassadors, speaking before such groups as

the latin American Association. the Cardenases were Atlanta

Habitat’s first Hispanic homeowners, and they have been a true

example of the lasting success we so hope our mission creates.

atlanta Habitat – SoCIAlly ReSponSIBle

Atlanta Habitat is a nonprofit charitable organization focused

on helping working families of all ethnic backgrounds obtain

affordable homes. our goal is to improve these families’ living

standards by giving them the opportunity to own a quality home

and by encouraging them to contribute positively to the

future of their families and their communities.
