Jonesboro-based Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity is working full-stride building and refurbishing homes all across the southern Atlanta Metro Area, having earlier this year finished one 15-home neighborhood in Lovejoy in southern Clayton County only to start a new one there earlier this month.

That second neighborhood build was kicked off with help from more than 200 The Home Depot employees.

In Fayette County, the Church Street community located in the heart of Fayetteville is on Habitat’s radar. Fayette County Outreach Coordinator Megan Hepker said the Church Street project actually began this spring when Habitat and the Fayetteville Mom’s Club worked together to rebuild Church Street Park, and now the groups will meet there again on Saturday, Nov. 5, when fencing will be installed around the upgraded playground.

“If volunteers want to come and help, that would be really great,” Hepker said. “We’re trying to revitalize the whole neighborhood,” Hepker added. “We’re going to be doing a needs assessment.”
