Greater Mount Airy Area Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity International was founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller near Americus, Georgia. Today, Habitat for Humanity has built more than1.8 million houses, serving more than 6.8 million families worldwide. Greater Mount Airy Area Habitat for Humanity was charted in 1993 with a 5-member Board of Directors who organized volunteers, finances and was able to complete the first home in 1995. Over the past 23 years, 48 families in the Surry County area have been served. Mount Airy Habitat has two homes currently under construction with hopes of having the future homeowners in their homes by late summer; increasing the total families served to 50! In our community, we have seen the tremendous impact that affordable housing has on helping people create better lives for themselves and their families. This is made possible because of our many generous donors and the hands and hearts of volunteers who annually give of their time and talent to help. Together, our efforts set the foundation for success, including better health, education and employment opportunities. As we celebrate the lives we have touched through affordable and decent housing, we look forward to another year of creating safe and secure places for families to grow, be healthy and thrive. At Habitat our vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. There is no amount of support too small…. Every helping hand takes us closer to a world where everybody has a decent place to live.
