Atlanta Habitat for Humanity will host a public meeting with property owners in the Old National area on Thursday, March 14 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Diamond Hall and Conference Center located at 5495 Old National Highway, #C9.
Atlanta Habitat representatives will speak with owners regarding a pending zoning modification with the City of South Fulton for recently purchased land at 5620 Old National Highway. Representatives previously met with members of South Fulton’s city council in January at Atlanta Habitat’s headquarters on Memorial Drive to discuss the project.
Atlanta Habitat plans to open a satellite operations center that will include the metro area’s second ReStore, a reuse store that accepts donations and sells home improvement items to the public at a fraction of the retail price. The operations center will also serve as a hub for providing new construction, critical home repair and rehab services in South Fulton.
Atlanta Habitat was first launched in 1983. It is the largest nonprofit, affordable housing developer in the area and one of the largest affiliates of Habitat for Humanity International. In addition to constructing new homes, the nonprofit homebuilder renovates blighted properties and completes critical repairs for qualifying homeowners. Houses are sold to first-time homebuyers through zero-interest mortgages in Atlanta and South Fulton.
Atlanta Habitat’s work has impacted approximately 6,000 families in 100 neighborhoods.
