Franklin County HFH is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold to those in need at no profit and with no interest charged.
Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses.

Founded in 1996
We dedicated our 5th house on July 5, 2009 in memory of Charles Katz, the first Executive Director FCHFH. The new homeowner, the Sherri Ware family, have moved in. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped make their dream house a reality!
In July we hosted a Low-Country Boil for the volunteers who helped Sherri build her new home.
Applications are being taken for your 6th house. A Family Selection Committee will be established at our August meeting.
On July 8, the Lavonia Chamber of Commerce sponsored a ribbon cutting for our new store which is located at 11927 Agusta Rd, Lavonia, GA. (in the Professional Plaza).
Volunteers are our mainstay, and are always needed for our builds and for our Thrift Store. If you are interested in volunteering with us, please call our office at 706-356-5479. We are open for business Wednesday through Saturday.
