History of Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity was first imagined at Koinonia Farm in Americus, Georgia. Founded by farmer and biblical scholar Clarence Jordan in 1942, Koinonia Farm was committed to community and racial equity.
In 1973 at Koinonia Farm, Jordan and Millard and Linda Fuller developed the concept of “partnership housing,” which emphasized people working side by side to build decent, affordable homes. From that idea, Habitat for Humanity International was founded in 1976. Today, Habitat affiliates work in more than 1,400 communities and 70 countries.
Habitat for Humanity of Grant County was established in 1992 by Edwin D Pirl. Since then, more than 54 families have partnered with us to achieve affordable homeownership.
