Overview

To address the housing needs of citizens, DeKalb County has rolled out an innovative program to put teachers, first responders and other citizens into homes in many of DeKalb County's most attractive neighborhoods.  ONE DeKalb Lives is a public service, housing initiative designed to stabilize communities hardest hit by the foreclosure epidemic and rebuild neighborhoods, one house at a time.

In DeKalb County, we know all too well the effect the downturn in the economy has had on our community, leaving in its wake thousands of homes in neighborhoods across our county that remain unoccupied.  These abandoned houses drive down the value of surrounding properties in the neighborhood and in some cases, attract crime to our communities.

ONE DeKalb Lives is a proactive, innovative and comprehensive response to this problem and aims to revitalize and stabilize communities devastated by foreclosures.  This umbrella program ensures all citizens have an ample opportunity to secure safe and affordable housing.

By bundling DeKalb County's most successful housing programs - Good Neighbor Next Door, Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP)1, NSP 3, and Get Home Now! - we will have a greater impact on reducing the numbers of foreclosed and abandoned properties in our community and increasing the number of new homeowners in our county.
