New Home Ownership
The overwhelming need for housing in Los Angeles County has provided 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 homeownership programs that serves families and individuals earning 30-80% of the median area income.
Cost burden and overcrowding are the most serious problems experienced by very low-income area residents who need clean, safe homes to live in. Working with volunteers, families and individuals, corporations, congregations and donors we are able to tackle this important housing issue throughout the greater Los Angeles area.
Through a collaborative effort, Habitat LA works towards increasing the affordable housing stock in our community by building new homes wherever land is available.
Homes are then sold to qualifying partner homeowners without profit and financed with affordable mortgage loans. The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments are used to build additional Habitat for Humanity homes.
Habitat LA’s homeownership program is currently closed.
