Habitat for Humanity-Coosa Valley was founded in 1984. While working in partnership with and on behalf of Habitat for Humanity International, we operate autonomously, choosing our own families, raising our own support, and building our own houses. As of July 2018, we have built 55 homes in Rome, Polk, and Chattooga Counties. Our hope is to eventually build 4 to 6 homes annually. We also have the A Brush With Kindness program, which is an exterior home painting program designed for homeowners who need minor exterior home repair and painting. Through these ministries we are working to ensure that the citizens of the three service counties have safe, decent, and affordable housing.
