Koinonia Farm and Hab

Koinonia Farm was a Christian commune founded in Americus in 1942, a time when racism and poverty were rife in rural parts of the South. The aim of the commune was to bring likeminded Christians of all races together in service of principles of love and acceptance, nonviolence, and simple living. Early years for Koinonia were difficult due to racially motivated violence. Their practice of racial integration was considered unacceptable by many locals at the time. However, the community persisted, and it still exists to this day. Habitat for Humanity was founded by former Koinonians, who modeled the nonprofit on Koinonia Partnership's activities.
