Welcome to Habitat for Humanity of Bulloch County, Georgia
for Humanity of Bulloch County is a non-profit, ecumenical Christian
housing ministry seeking to eliminate poverty housing, and to make
decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. Habitat invites
people from all walks of life to work together in partnership to build
houses with families in need. Since its start in 1991, Habitat for
Humanity of Statesboro has built more than 3 dozen homes throughout
Habitat for Humanity of Bulloch County serves Bulloch County, Georgia, and is directed by a volunteer board of directors, with a full-time Executive Director, Office Manager and part-time Construction Manager.
Habitat for Humanity of Bulloch County is not a charity or a give-away program. Habitat for Humanity builds houses with Bulloch County families in need. Volunteer labor is used to keep building costs low for Habitat families.
Where Habitat begins
of a Habitat home does not begin with the volunteers you see working on
the house on Saturdays. It begins with the generosity of local residents
who donate cash, or materials for homes, who help sponsor houses or
donate items to the Habitat ReStore. Except for occasional grants, all
money to build Habitat homes is raised locally, in Bulloch County.
Partner with Habitat Bulloch
for Humanity of Bulloch County accepts applications from local families
on an annual basis. The Family Selection committee reviews the
applications and chooses families based on their need for better
shelter, their willingness to become partners in the program, and their
ability to repay the no-interest mortgage. Applicants must have
lived or worked in Bulloch County for at least one year at the time of
application. Neither race nor religion is a factor in choosing partner
The selection process begins with an Application Fair, which is normally held each spring. Anyone interested in applying for a Habitat home must attend one of these fairs to get an application. To be notified of the date of the Application Fairs, send an email with your name and mailing address to Habitat for Humanity of Bulloch County.
The cost for all home building has gone up steeply in recent years, making Habitat even more important as the only source of affordable homes for many hard-working, low-paid families.
