Hands On Athens aims to create a coalition of organizations dedicated to assisting low-income Athens Clarke County homeowners in historic neighborhoods to maintain, repair, and restore their properties as part of overall neighborhood revitalization. Hands On Athens is administered by ACHF, with funding in the form of a Community Development Block Grant provided by Athens-Clarke County Human and Economic Development. Several local sponsors and private donors also give to the project annually. A number of local agencies, businesses and churches provide in-kind support so that we may help our deserving homeowners, many of whom are elderly and/or handicapped. Restoration of neighborhood pride and improved quality of life are the very tangible results of the program.
