The Macon County affiliate of Habitat for Humanity (HFH) International is now Habitat for Humanity Macon/Jackson. At the request of HFH International, the Macon County affiliate has assumed responsibility for restoring operations in Jackson County. Full transfer of the Jackson County assets and responsibilities occurred on Oct. 5.

In restoring Habitat operations in Jackson County, the merged organization has taken responsibility for the seven Habitat houses that were built there. “We’re using the same business model that was developed by International in that Habitat Macon/Jackson holds the mortgage for the homes and the mortgage payments from current homeowners feed into a revolving fund that allows us to build more homes” said Rick Westerman, executive director of the new organization.
