Habitat for Humanity
The Atlanta REALTORS® helped grant the gift of home-ownership to another family with the completion of its 16th Habitat for Humanity home build on November 18th. The seven week project consisted of several Atlanta REALTORS® teams and took place from October 14th through November 13th.

Each year, the Atlanta REALTORS® is dedicated to building a house alongside the Atlanta Chapter of Habitat for Humanity. This community service project provides members with the opportunity to bond together and do something very special for a deserving family in the community we serve.
The purpose of the partnership with Habitat for Humanity is to promote the value of home-ownership and the financial stability that comes from owning a home. Since 1976, Habitat has helped nearly 7 million people through housing opportunities and solutions, enabling them to achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build brighter futures. Promoting home-ownership is a prime focus of the Atlanta REALTORS®. We believe that building homes with families can open doors to better opportunities for generations to come!
2017 ARA President Bill Rawlings: "We all are so very proud to continue our long history of partnering with Habitat and the positive impact our two organizations have in the community. All of our members should strive to be involved and participate in this heart-warming experience. Knowing that you have dedicated a small amount of time to help provide housing for a deserving family, is an unexplainable feeling. We look forward to more years and projects dedicated to promoting home-ownership."
This is a great way to give back to the community while putting your company in the public eye. If you are interested in sponsoring one of the weekends in next years build, please contact Mary Pope at 404-732-0603.
