Volunteer for an Atlanta Habitat for Humanity Veterans Build

Military veterans who are students, faculty, staff and alumni at Georgia State’s Perimeter College are invited to help build an affordable home for a working family.

Atlanta Habitat for Humanity has opened 10 slots for Georgia State veterans to join the Clark Howard Veterans Build events on Feb. 4 and Feb. 11. The builds, sponsored by consumer expert and national radio show host Clark Howard, will take place in the Dixie Hills neighborhood of northwest Atlanta. Perimeter volunteers can register at

Perimeter College’s alumni staff and board embarked on a partnership with Atlanta Habitat for Humanity four years ago with long-term plans to participate in and sponsor home builds and provide support for Habitat and its families. Recent participation in the Clark Howard Habitat Builds is in keeping with that partnership.

Perimeter student and veteran Anthony B. Swift Jr. experienced his first Habitat build through Perimeter in October. He signed up in part to honor a core value he learned in the U.S. Air Force, “Service Before Self.”

“The experience affected me in a positive way because I was able to do something for someone else, and I met some really nice people,” Swift said. “I would volunteer again because I believe that we are rewarded in the long run if we help others.”
