A new Atlanta Habitat for Humanity ReStore and Service Center in the City of South Fulton has opened its doors.
Habitat is a nonprofit that works to improve housing and empower residents to reach their homeownership goals.
The new center, the largest expansion in the institution’s 38-year history, reflects the organization’s goal to foster affordable housing and thriving communities through neighborhood revitalization, restoring blighted properties and offering educational programs.
The organization has had an estimated $40 million impact in city neighborhoods over the past five years.
“This new ReStore will add to South Fulton’s vitality and will be one of the anchors in the revitalization of the Old National Highway,” Mayor William Edwards said during the ribbon-cutting ceremony. “[We will] invest in our community and build together.”
