Our History in Dalton Whitfield and Murray
Our Habitat affiliate was started in 1987 with founding members Mr. Charles Bowen, Mr. Gene Kirk and Rev. Joel Mason. We will celebrate our 30 th anniversary in 2017 and we have built and renovated over 54 homes over these past years. We have continued to follow the guiding principles of our Habitat International organization for our community we serve: 1-Demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ, 2-Focus on shelter, 3-Advocate for affordable housing , 4-Promote dignity and hope, 5-Support sustainable and transformational development.
Investing in our Habitat affiliate could not be achieved without all the many volunteers that contribute their time and talent to helping low-income families. From the time a partner family applies, to the time a partner family is given their key to their new home and living in their home, volunteers play a part in helping build lives. Churches, corporations, and individuals partner with us and we are very grateful for their time and talent. Our Board of Directors are active volunteers along with volunteers that serve our ReStore operations, administrative office, and construction site.
Our goal is for each Habitat partner family to know we are standing beside them and sharing God’s love in every aspect of the process. Our mission statement: Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
