The idea that became Habitat for Humanity first grew from the fertile soil of Koinonia Farm, a community farm outside of Americus, Georgia, founded by a farmer and biblical scholar Clarence Jordan.

On the farm, Jordan and Habitat’s eventual founders, Millard and Linda Fuller, developed the concept of “partnership housing”. The concept centered on those in need of adequate shelter working side by side with volunteers to build decent, affordable homes. Driven by the vision that everyone deserves a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity (HFHI) was formed in 1976.
