Our annual Habitat build starts September 29, 2018, and we are looking for members to volunteer a Saturday, or two, to help make a difference in the lives of a local family. Spots are limited and filling up fast!

Habitat House Project

Habitat for Humanity

September 29, 2018 through November 17, 2018
Saturdays from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm

Each year, Shallowford Presbyterian Church partners with Atlanta Habitat for Humanity, and many local churches to live the vision of making sure everyone has a decent place to live. With support from volunteers, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability, and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families.

Shallowford Presbyterian · Northwest Presbyterian · Basilica of Sacred Heart
Northside United Methodist · Ben Hill UMC · Haygood Memorial UMC
Decatur Presbyterian · First Presbyterian · Christ the King · Our Lady of Lourdes

Homebuyer Profile
This year we are excited to help build a home for Mr. Simon and his family! Mr. Simon is the homebuyer and knows a thing or two about construction, as this is in his line of work. In his spare time, he enjoys singing, building, cooking and working out. He also enjoys helping others, especially through his volunteer activities mentoring incarcerated men. In addition, he is active in his church, and he enjoys taking his five grandchildren to the YMCA. Mr. Simon wants his own home for security, as a gathering place for his family, and to be a legacy for his children. He is excited to build his home within walking distance of his daughter and his newest grandchild.

Ways to Volunteer

  1. Hands on Work · Spend your Saturdays working with your hands to either build or restore a local Habitat home.
  2. Food for the Soul · If you feel called to volunteer in a different way, we offer members the opportunity to volunteer through bringing meals for the crew. Everyone has to eat, right?
  3. Donate · Give a Monetary Donation
