Our Mission

Building a Greater Los Angeles!

About Us:

The overwhelming need for housing in Los Angeles County has provided Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) with a unique opportunity to change lives in our neighborhoods.  Los Angeles ranks as one of the least affordable housing areas in the U.S. and yet Habitat for Humanity is one of the few – if not only – affordable home ownership programs that serves families and individuals earning 30-80% of the median family income.  Cost burden and overcrowding are the most serious problems experienced by very low-income area residents.  Working with volunteers, families and individuals, corporations, congregations and donors we are able to tackle this important housing issue throughout the Los Angeles area.  We are dedicated to making homeownership possible for low-income families and individuals.

We offer a hand up, not a hand out. We do not give away our houses.  We require our Habitat LA future homeowners to invest up to 500 hours of sweat equity to help build their home and each qualify for a 0% interest mortgage.

Since 1990, we have built and rehabilitated more than 500 houses in neighborhoods all across Los Angele County.  Shelter is a basic human need and Habitat for Humanity strives to achieve its goal of eliminating substandard housing by making decent, sustainable and affordable housing a reality for all families and individuals.

Our Mission:

Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes,
communities and hope.
