House 21 in 2021!

Come build with us as we continue our mission of changing lives one home at a time and building affordable homes for women by women.

List of 3 items.

  • Building virtually in 2021

    Due to the pandemic, Atlanta Habitat for Humanity is not allowing volunteers on build sites in 2021. Although the build will be virtual, there are many ways our volunteers can stay engaged with House #21. Please complete this MWB Interest Form to provide your information and interest in remote volunteer opportunities, and we will be in touch.
  • Help us raise $80,000 to build our 21st home

    If we raise $80,000 through the generosity of our builders and sponsors, Atlanta Habitat for Humanity can build a home for a single mother to fulfill our mission again in 2021.

    We have varying levels of sponsorships. 100% of all donations go directly toward the cost of building the home. To learn more visit our Be a Sponsor page.
  • Meet our 21st homeowner!

    Johneska is a pre-K school teacher. She enjoys taking computer classes and is very excited to build her new home with Marist Women Build! Her daughter Janai is a 13-year-old honor student who enjoys singing, dancing, and computer coding. She is taking a virtual painting class with her mom. Janai is ready for her new home to be built and the new memories it will hold for  them!

Build 21 has begun!

2020 Virtual Build

List of 3 items.

  • A virtual build in the midst of a pandemic

    Like so many organizations in 2020, AHFH had to modify their business operations due to Covid-19, and just a few days before construction began, our build was put on hold. We are grateful for the builders and sponsors who donated $80,000 toward MWB house #20. Although our 300+ volunteers were not able to build, our funds provided the needed financial support to complete the home.
  • New homeowner in September 2020

    In September 2020 Micah Beverly became a first-time homeowner with Atlanta Habitat for Humanity (AHFH). This could not have happened without the financial and volunteer support from Marist Women Build.
  • Mission accomplished!

    What normally would have taken 8 days of building and 320 volunteers, a dedicated team of 4 AHFH skilled supervisors built the home in 90 days.

    2020 was a build like no other…a VIRTUAL build! The end result was another home built, another extremely happy family, and another Marist Women Build mission accomplished.
