Habitat for Humanity Serving Union/Towns

CaptureEver stopped to think about the word “home”? No matter if you use it as a noun, adverb or adjective – this word is used to describe a place where one lives or resides permanently and in most cases with family members. We hear the phrases from children which says “I want to go home.” and from adults – ” I can’t wait to get home.”  Who can forget the famous line from Dorothy in Wizard of Oz– “There’s no place like home.”  It’s so true isn’t it? Your home is such an intimate place of familiarity and creates a solace for those who live there with comforts we love. But what if you didn’t have a “home”?  Well, Habitat for Humanity understands how important having a “home” really is.  It’s an International non-profit organization built on Christian values and regardless of the persons race or religion – they have helped more than 1 million families since their inception in 1976.

Did you know that our world is experiencing a global housing crisis? Experts predict that by 2020 the world slum population will reach almost 1 billion.  In 2014 in our North Georgia communities, Habitat for Humanity built 13 homes and is working on the 14th home in Blairsville, GA right now.  See more about the TAYLOR BUILD HERE!  Across the US & as far as Cambodia – HFH served over 300,000 families in 2014. They make incredible partnerships with generous companies like Delta, Lowe’s, State Farm, Mastercard – just to name a few, to help with advertising and donations as well.

As advocates of mountain living, we would like to encourage you as business owners, families or individual to get involved with this organization. Through donations, volunteering or whatever you can do…every effort is greatly appreciated.  If you can be a part of a local build – contact the local office today and help be a part of helping establish a “home” for a family who will appreciate it.  Think about it!  Thankful to live, work and serve in such a wonderful community!  Chad Lariscy | The Mountain Life Team | KW Realty Partners 706.633.8186
