The Program


Habitat for Humanity began in Sumter County near Americas, Georgia in 1976.   The founders of Habitat for Humanity, Millard & Linda Fuller, believe everyone deserves a place they can call home.  They hold the belief that people need a hand up, not a hand out.  Habitats mission is to work in partnership with people everywhere to eliminate substandard & overcrowded housing through affordable home ownership.  Habitat builds homes for families at no profit, with no interest loans, for those families who otherwise could not afford these homes.
