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 celebrated our 30th anniversary in 2017. During this time we've have built and renovated over 58 homes and repaired over 30. 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.
The success of 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 the keys to their new home, volunteers play a part in helping build lives. Churches, corporations, and individuals partner with us to make these homeowners dreams a reality. 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.
