Habitat for Humanity Home Build Project
The annual ARA-sponsored Habitat for Humanity build provides members the opportunity to become involved with a community service project that directly relates to our industry. Promoting home-ownership is the focus of our association so we encourage you to become involved in this build and participate in this heart-warming experience.

Who's Ready to Build a Dream in 2018?
This Fall the Board is happy to bring to life the Dream of Home Ownership for a deserving family during our 17th Habitat for Humanity home build. The seven week project takes place over a 7-week period, every Saturday from October 6th to November 17th. Designated Thursdays and Saturdays are assigned to a different volunteer company to provide a minimum of 40 volunteers to complete the 8-hour work day. Truely, one of the most rewarding team building experiences your company can participate in.
Additionally, Lunch sponsors are recruited to provide the volunteers with water, Gatorade, lunch, snacks, and all items needed for the work day such as trash bags, hand sanitizer, work gloves, etc. All items and lunch are coordinated by the staff liaison at the Atlanta REALTORS® office.
This is a great way to give back to the community while putting your company in the public eye. If you are interested in sponsoring one of the weekends, please contact Mary Pope at 404-732-0603.
