About the Lutheran Coalition for Habitat

The Lutheran Coalition for Habitat for Humanity is an organization consisting of 12 Lutheran Churches located in Cobb, Fulton and Cherokee counties who have agreed to partner with local Habitat for Humanity affiliates to eliminate substandard housing. The Coalition has been building houses since 1993 and has built at least one and sometimes two houses per year. Our motivating belief come from James, Chapter 2: “What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have work.” The Lutheran Coalition for Habitat is a 501(c)3 organization.

Taste of Habitat - September 22, 2023

The 19th Annual Taste of Habitat Fundraising Event returns on September 22 from 7 – 9 PM at The Metropolitan Club in Alpharetta.

Our goal this year is to raise $35,000 to build Habitat homes in Metro Atlanta. More than 60 fabulous chefs from the Lutheran Coalition for Habitat churches will be sharing the foods they love to make. It’s a fun “date night” (adults only) with outstanding food & drink, great fellowship and most enjoyable live music. There will also be a Silent Auction and trivia contest!
