Seeking to put God’s love into action, San Diego Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. Habitat was founded on the conviction that every man, woman, and child should have a simple, decent, and affordable home to live in dignity and safety.
In addition to building new houses, Habitat for Humanity does revitalization work. In partnership with the city of National City, Habitat’s rehab program takes existing, blighted homes and creates affordable homes for purchase by low-income families where they can live with dignity and safety.
