Macon Area Habitat for Humanity announces new Collegiate Chapter at MGA

When students return to Middle Georgia State University (MGA) this fall they will have a new opportunity to engage with fellow students while testing their construction skills and serving their community.

In the spring of 2019 MGA received approval from Habitat for Humanity International for the creation of the Middle Georgia State University Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapter. The idea of a new campus chapter to support Macon Area Habitat for Humanity (MAHFH), the local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, was nurtured by MGA student Kanan Patel after she participated in the Habitat Chapter at the University of Georgia before transferring to MGA to complete her degree.

Macon Area Habitat for Humanity is an ecumenical Christian housing ministry whose goal is the elimination of substandard housing in Macon. Since its inception in 1986, Macon Area Habitat for Humanity has served over 120 families in the Macon area through invaluable partnerships with area churches, corporations, groups, individuals, non-profits and local government, through the provision of safe, decent and affordable homeownership.

For more information about the Habitat Collegiate Chapters or other ways to support MAHFH please contact Ivey Hall, MAHFH Executive Director at 478-745-0630 or by email at ihall@maconhabitat.org. Students interested in participating in the MGA chapter should contact Kanan Patel at kanan.patel@mga.edu.
