What does Habitat for Humanity mean to the state of Georgia?

Since 1976, Habitat affiliates in Georgia worked with approximately 7,068 Georgia families to obtain sustainable, affordable homeownership. These families contribute "sweat equity" and make monthly mortgage payments.  Habitat for Humanity has generated a combined economic impact of over $2,900,000,000 in construction activity and over $480,000 in sales tax revenue through our ReStore brand retail stores that provide families, and the larger community, with discounted items for home repair and furnishing.
