As part of its commitment to keep affordable homeownership options on Atlanta’s historic Westside, Atlanta Habitat for Humanity is building a new house in the neighborhood—its first in nearly 10 years.

Atlanta Habitat homebuyer, Ms. Medley, selected the Westside to build her first home for she and her family because she wants to be invested in the historic community.

This Friday, Ms. Medley will have help with her build from some of Atlanta’s corporate and government leaders who are partners in  creating meaningful change in the Westside communities. Leading the build effort alongside Ms. Medley is Atlanta Habitat house sponsor Novelis and its Recycle for Good Campaign, which is funding the house from nearly three million recycled aluminum cans—many of which were collected during the 2016-17 Atlanta Falcons season.
