Habitat for Humanity in Fulton County Charity Profile
Fulton County Habitat for Humanity Inc.is a local affiliate of a national and
international organization which builds and rehabilitates homes for those who lack
decent housing. Volunteers donate labor, materials, and money as a Christian
ministry. Because labor is donated, the cost of constructing and rehabilitating
homes is kept low. In order to keep the homes affordable to those most in need,
no interest is charged. Mortgages are usually for twenty years. The monthly
payment on the mortgage, taxes, and home insurance is between $250.00 and
$400.00 a month on a twenty or thirty year mortgage. Families selected for home
ownership are required to invest 250 hours per adult family member of "sweat
equity" either on their home, other Habitat homes, or other approved activities.
Families become Partner Families and join the ministry of Habitat.
