Rabun County Habitat for Humanity


What is Habitat for Humanity?

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit housing organization working locally and in nearly 1,400 communities across the United States and in approximately 70 countries around the world. Habitat’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Habitat works toward this vision by building and improving homes in partnership with individuals and families in need of a decent and affordable place to live. 

Raising Funds to build the 35th house in Rabun County!

This year, Rabun County Habitat for Humanity will be the recipient of the Rhapsody in Rabun funds raised from the Taste of the Mountains GALA held at the Rabun County Civic Center on August 10, 2019 from 5 - 11 pm. See the home page to see how you can help.

How does Habitat for Humanity’s homeownership program work?

Families and individuals in need of decent, affordable housing apply for homeownership with their local Habitat for Humanity.

Each local Habitat’s family selection committee selects homeowners based on three criteria:

  • The applicant's level of need.
  • Their willingness to partner with Habitat.
  • Their ability to repay a mortgage through an affordable payment plan.

As part of their willingness to partner, Habitat’s homebuyers invest hundreds of hours of their own labor, called sweat equity, working alongside volunteers and other Habitat homeowners.

Habitat for Humanity follows a nondiscriminatory policy of family selection. Neither race nor religion is a factor in choosing Habitat’s homeowners.
