500,000 Homes in 2011!
NW Metro Atlanta Habitat for Humanity joined in the worldwide celebration of 500,000th/500,0001st milestone houses as part of World Habitat Day on October 3, 2011.
Habitat for Humanity marked a major milestone October 3rd when it dedicated its 500,000th house in Maai Mahiu, Kenya. On the same day, Habitat also raised the walls on its 500,001st house in Paterson, N.J., in recognition of the work still needed to eradicate poverty housing worldwide.
The milestone houses represent the steady increase in Habitat for Humanity’s scale and scope to help more families in need of decent, affordable housing. In 2005, Habitat celebrated its 200,000th house. Six years later, Habitat for Humanity has more than doubled that number through new, rehabilitated, repaired and improved homes.
NW Metro Atlanta Habitat for Humanity is among the more than 2,300 Habitat affiliates worldwide that have made this milestone possible, having built close to 350 houses since its founding in 1986. We would like to thank you for all the contributions you have made in our community that have helped us contribute to reaching this milestone achievement, and we thank you for your continued support in helping HFHI reach its first million homes!
