VOLUNTEER.

Swing a hammer or volunteer in our ReStore, we're always looking for more volunteers! 

The most important people at Macon Area Habitat for Humanity, are the families who live in the homes we build. 

Macon Area Habitat builds houses in partnership with families who demonstrate a need for housing, the ability to pay, and also a willingness to partner. These homes are sold, not given, to approved homeowner applicants. Moving into and owning a Habitat home improves the quality of life for its residents, not only in their physical surroundings but also by instilling a sense of pride and responsibility which comes with homeownership.

Do I qualify?

Applicants must meet specific requirements in order for their applications to be considered:

  • A need for housing, which means currently housing conditions are substandard, overcrowded, unsafe, or too expensive in relation to a family’s monthly income.
  • The ability to pay a monthly mortgage with a demonstrable history of income.
  • A willingness to partner. Partner families must fulfill 300 “sweat equity” hours of volunteer work, both on our construction sites working on their home and other partner families’ homes, working at our ReStore, and participating in required workshops and educational classes. 

What will be required after I'm approved?

  • Once approved, the selected families and Macon Area Habitat sign a "Partnership Agreement." 

  • Pay a deposit of up to $1700.00 before closing. 

  • Debt MUST NOT INCREASE before closing on your home.

  • Complete 300 sweat equity hours

  • Attend all required homeownership classes
