Habitat for Humanity-North Central Georgia Earns Great Nonprofits Designation for 2023
Leaders of Habitat for Humanity-North Central Georgia have announced the organization earned a GreatNonprofits’ Top-Rated Nonprofits designation for 2023. The second-most trusted rating seal after the Better Business Bureau, GreatNonprofits’ Top-Rated Nonprofits are endorsed by clients, volunteers, and their community.
Founded in 1994, Habitat for Humanity – North Central Georgia, which serves Cherokee, Dawson, Forsyth and North Fulton counties, enables individuals to build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.
GreatNonprofits’ Top-Rated Nonprofits is a people’s choice award where volunteers, donors, sponsors, homeowners, and fans are asked to share stories of inspiration, express their appreciation, and describe the impact of our organization on their lives and others.
“We are thrilled and humbled to be named to the 2023 GreatNonprofits Top-Rated Nonprofit list,” said Steve Napier, executive director of Habitat for Humanity-North Central Georgia. “The stories posted about us and the work we do makes us proud to serve our community.”
A veteran volunteer wrote: “I gain great personal satisfaction from working on Habitat’s new build and home repair, especially home repair for Veterans, projects. I have seen firsthand how our work with Habitat changes people’s lives.”
Another volunteer posted: “Habitat for Humanity – North Central Georgia is an outstanding nonprofit in that it builds and finances homes for those under-served families living in our community. It also teaches these new/prospective homeowners about home to budget their finances, maintain their home and become invested in their new home through sweat equity. This organization builds quality homes with all volunteers except for the professional trades, such as electricians, etc. I have been involved with this organization as a volunteer for over 15 years and will continue to support this Christian-based organization.”
“I work with a terrific group of volunteers who not only give off their time and energy to build houses for deserving families, but who also have a passion for teaching others. They take pride and pleasure in helping beginners learn and guiding experienced volunteers in “the Habitat way” of building solid houses,” a rookie volunteer shared.
