The generally accepted definition of affordability is for a household to pay no more than 30 percent of its annual income on housing. Families who pay more than 30 percent of their income for housing are considered cost burdened and may have difficulty affording necessities such as food, clothing, transportation and medical care.  The lack of affordable housing is a significant hardship for low-income households preventing them from meeting their other basic needs, such as nutrition and healthcare, or saving for their future and that of their families. Our August mission will focus on affordable housing through  the Flint River Habitat for Humanity.

35The mission of Flint River Habitat for Humanity is to eliminate poverty housing in Dougherty and Lee County while serving as a catalyst to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.  Habitat invites people from all faiths and walks of life to work together in partnership, building houses with families in need. Flint River Habitat founded in 1986, is part of a growing Habitat family. Flint River Habitat's work over the years has resulted in the over 120 homes being constructed in Albany.

Through volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations of money and materials, Habitat builds 15simple, decent houses with the help of our homeowners. Our houses are sold to families/individuals at no profit, and financed with affordable, no interest loans. The homeowner's monthly mortgage payments are then recycled into a fund that is used to continue our building efforts.

 

 

2On Saturday, August 15, 45 volunteers of all ages descended on the local habitat neighborhood in South Albany. After a short orientation from Stacey Driggers, the executive director of Flint River Habitat, volunteers broke into groups to work on three different houses.  A group of young workers set about painting an existing house that was being made ready for new owners. Another group proceeded to build sub flooring for a new home.  A third group climbed to the roof of a house that had been damaged and needed rehabbing. Roof decking and trusses were removed. Habitat home owners worked side by side with our volunteers. After much sweat, a few bug bites, some scrapes and scratches and lots of laughs, the group was treated to a picnic lunch provide by Avalon United Methodist. Volunteers left the site later in the day tired and feeling very blessed for the opportunity to  help provide safe and affordable housing to our neighbors in need.
