    After over 20 months delay since the last build, Habitat for Humanity Pickens County Inc. (HFH-PC) has in hand its first building permit for a home in New Hope Acres subdivision.  

    The delay caused by construction of a new road, surveying and governmental requirements along with the formation of the New Hope Acres Homeowners Association is now over and construction will begin immediately on a new home for a pre-selected family of five. 
     HFH-PC has waited a long time for this to become a reality, and we expect to build at least seven new homes in this subdivision, with Phase II to expand into a few years with an additional eight building lots.
    Obtaining land at a reasonable cost has always been a challenge for HFH-PC, and finally our dream of owning our own land has come true.  HFH-PC would like to say “thank you” to all those who have supported our organization over the past 13 years through volunteering their time and offering critical financial support.
    Our mission remains to give families a hand up, not a handout, by building simple, decent affordable housing in partnership with God and God’s people in need, with the ultimate goal of eliminating poverty housing in Pickens County.
