Veterans/Military Families

In 2011, Habitat LA established Habitat for Heroesan outreach initiative seeking to engage veterans, active duty members and the armed services, and their families in Habitat for Humanity’s mission.  Since then, more than 4,000 veterans have volunteered with us, and nearly 100 have benefited from our housing services. Habitat LA is committed to providing more opportunities for veterans and active duty members of the military, and encourages everyone to get involved with Habitat for Heroes.
