Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles
We offer a hand up, not a hand out
With the support of community partners, donors and volunteers, Habitat LA constructs new or renovates existing homes alongside Habitat Partner Homebuyers. In addition to a down payment and monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest Sweat Equity hours building their future Habitat home and the homes of other Habitat Homebuyers.
Habitat homes are sold to Partner Homebuyers at no profit and financed with affordable loans.
Since 1990, we have built, rehabilitated and repaired nearly 800 houses in neighborhoods all across greater Los Angeles. 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.
