PRUMC and Habitat believe that every person should have access to a decent, safe and affordable place to live. Because of that belief, we team up each year to build homes for hard working families. Our strong partnership with Habitat is founded on their mission of sustainability. Each recipient of a Habitat Home works by our side to build the home. They also attend required home ownership education classes on maintenance, budgeting and more. Because of this type of “hand up” outreach, we are building better communities that last.
Want to join us? It’s easy! No building experience is necessary – just a willing spirit. Our volunteers of all skill levels partner with Habitat house leaders to construct a home in 7 weekends.
Join us in making a home for Ms. Kareen Holloway and her 16 year old daughter Kayla. Kareen works for an Atlanta hospital in the Emergency Room Department. She grew up in Connecticut and came to Atlanta to attend Spelman University where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Public Health. Kareen returned to Connecticut and then moved here about 2 years ago to join her sister who also lives here. In her spare time she attends church and she enjoys traveling and DIY projects. Kayla has been on a dance team for 10 years and she also enjoys music and science. Ms. Holloway and Kayla are very excited about building their new home.
