House #48 is well underway with APSO (Alabama Power Service Organization) raising the walls and framing the house on Nov. 6, 2015. Habitat volunteers continue to install roofing, siding, and insulation. Volunteers are welcome and needed to help complete the interior of the house (painting, install doors, locksets, appliances, landscaping and more). The house is sponsored by Habitat for Humanity with grant support from BBVA Compass and is located at 104 Adams Circle, Gadsden. Contact our office to volunteer! 256-543-1898.

Gadsden-Etowah Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization, that has been building simple, decent and affordable homes in Gadsden, AL, since 1996. Gadsden-Etowah Habitat for Humanity partners with volunteers and low income families to build affordable housing. The houses are sold to these families at no profit and with no interest.
Volunteers provide most of the labor, while individuals and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving fund for Humanity to purchase building materials for the construction of more houses.
