House #47

House #47 is under construction on Calhoun Drive in East Gadsden for Allison and Jorge Alegria and their three children. The house is sponsored by funds from the Habitat Dragon Boat Festival 2014 and a Gibson Family Foundation Grant. The house will be built by the Greater Gadsden Home Builders Association in a Blitz Build on June 8-19th. Local Habitat volunteers and families will also be a part of completing the build.

Who We Are

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.
