Who We Are
Gadsden-Etowah Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization, that has been building simple, decent and affordable homes in Gadsden, AL, since 1996. Gadsden-Etowah Habitat for Humanity partners with volunteers and low income families to build affordable housing. The houses are sold to families at no profit and with no interest. As of 2017, 62 adults and 111 children now have a simple, decent place to rest their heads at night.
Volunteers provide most of the labor, while individuals and corporate donors provide funds and materials to build Habitat houses. Partner families themselves invest 300 hours of labor - "sweat equity" - building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a Revolving Fund for Humanity to purchase building materials for the construction of more houses.
