National Homeownership Month

June 1st marks the start of National Homeownership Month! Habitat for Humanity North Central Georgia is proud to celebrate this time dedicated to recognizing the many benefits of homeownership. This year, we are focusing on celebrating community because when we come together to support affordable homeownership and racial equity in housing, we can build brighter futures for more local families.

The Importance of Homeownership

Habitat for Humanity North Central Georgia believes everyone deserves a decent, stable, affordable place to live. Through years of research, we know that stable housing is essential to childrens’ well-being and also affects child development. We know that affordable housing helps local schools and raises standardized test scores; it helps taxpayers and builds stronger, more vibrant communities. And the physical, mental, and financial benefits of owning a home are life-changing.
