Habitat can help you rebuild or accept your donated property

Area residents from Forrest, Jones, Lamar, and Marion Counties affected by the January 21st tornadoes have options when considering long-term recovery plans.

Home/Property owners, who wish to rebuild, may bring those to the Habitat Homeownership application. If accepted into the Hattiesburg Area Habitat Program, Habitat will work in partnership with the family to rebuild on their property.


Home/Property owners who do not wish to rebuild, can donate the property to Hattiesburg Habitat.  This is a tax-deductible donation. Hattiesburg residents are very loyal to their neighborhoods. Having an inventory of properties from all across our geographic service area makes it easier for families in our program to choose to live near their extended families and in the neighborhoods where they grew up.


Hattiesburg Area Habitat is always happy to receive donated property. Home/Property donations are not limited to those affected by the tornadoes. Please contact Laura Goodwin-Wright by phone at 601-582-4663 ext.15 if you have questions.
