Learn About Us
Habitat for Humanity of Bulloch County was founded in 1991, and constructed its first house in 1992. Since 1992, working in partnership with churches, organizations, business, local government and the families we serve, we have constructed 50 houses and rehabbed two homes, providing simple, decent housing for 52 families. Habitat for Humanity of Bulloch County is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, registered Georgia corporation and an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International.
Habitat for Humanity International is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry. Habitat works in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold to those in need, Habitat’s partner families, at no profit and with little or no interest charged. Partner families invest hundreds of hours of their own labor — sweat equity — into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses.
