Collection Description

Historical Note

Habitat for Humanity International is a non-profit Christian housing ministry founded by Millard and Linda Fuller in 1976. The organization works to build decent, safe housing for needy families and individuals around the world. Its operational headquarters are located in Americus, GA, and its administrative headquarters are in Atlanta. Habitat operates on the community level through independent local affiliates and performs work internationally through national offices.

The concept for Habitat began at Koinonia farm, a small, interracial community outside of Americus, GA. This community was founded by farmer and biblical scholar Clarence Jordan in 1942. In 1965, the Fullers visited Koinonia and, together with Jordan, developed the idea of "partnership housing," a system in which those in need of housing would work side by side with volunteers to build simple, decent houses.

In 1976, Habitat for Humanity International was officially established. Former U. S. President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn Carter got involved in 1984 with the first Jimmy Carter Work Project. Since then, the Carters have been consistent supporters of Habitat, giving it a national and international spotlight.

In 2005, Fuller was dismissed from Habitat for Humanity amid unresolved disputes and established the Fuller Center for Housing. Jonathan Reckford took the position of executive director. As of 2013, Habitat for Humanity has built over 600,000 homes, eliminating poverty housing or homelessness for 3 million people worldwide.

Scope and Content

The affiliate files cover information about Habitat for Humanity's community-level offices across the United States. The general files cover projects and planning of individual affiliates, filed according to the name of the affiliate location. The North Carolina Americorps papers consist of name files associated with Americorps-Habitat partnership projects and volunteer placement. The affiliate operations manuals are instructional guides created by Habitat headquarters to educate affiliates on how to conduct business in accordance with their standards.

Organization and Arrangement

The affiliate files are arranged into three series: general, North Carolina Americorps, and operations manuals.

This finding aid represents just one portion of the Habitat for Humanity International Records, which altogether consist of correspondence, event files, administrative files, affiliate files, media project files, newsletters, clippings, and print samples, as well as photographs, artifacts, and audiovisual materials.
