The History of the Lutheran Coalition for Habitat for Humanity

The Lutheran Coalition for Habitat was formed in 1993 and built our first house in 1994, after raising the necassary funds. Since that time, we have built at least 1 house per year, including completing one started by the LCMS National Youth Gathering in 1998. The Coalition’s stated mission is to “Grow and Expand”. This continues to drive the group to solicit new congregations to join us and enjoy the fellowship while following the Mission of Habitat to eliminate sub standard housing in the world.

LCHH Mission Statement

The Lutheran Coalition for Habitat for Humanity is a group of concerned Lutherans in the Atlanta, Georgia metropolitan area who have agreed to partner with local Habitat for Humanity affiliates to eliminate substandard housing. The prime direction for this group comes from the Scripture, Saint James' Chapter 2 direction: "What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if you have faith but do not have works? ... and I, by my works, will show you my faith". This most basic Christian principle has been embraced by the coalition and put into action through the Habitat for Humanity Partnership.

The Coalition intends to annually join Habitat for Humanity and a deserving Partner Family in the construction of a decent affordable home for the Partner Family. The Coalition will endeavor to provide the funding and volunteer construction labor to this partnership. 

The Coalition commits to reach out to all congregations in the Atlanta area and actively solicit their participation as a Coalition Member, and to share the opportunity of this experience.

It is specifically intended that the Coalition should grow, split, merge and expand to other localities and dynamically search for opportunities to expand both the membership and works projects to be undertaken.
