Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) builds, rehabilitates, and repairs affordable and sustainable homes in partnership with hardworking, low-income families and individuals. Since our founding in 1990, Habitat LA has completed more than 1,300 homes locally and internationally.
Together with volunteers and future homeowners, Habitat LA has improved the housing stock throughout our service area. By 2020, Habitat LA will have invested over $100 million in helping families, revitalizing neighborhoods, and creating more access to affordable housing. We invite you to join us in Building a Greater Los Angeles!
Habitat LA believes in developing affordable housing that is also sustainable. In 2008, Habitat LA built 30 homes as a part of the Jimmy Carter Work Project (JCWP) employing Green Building practices. These homes were the first Habitat for Humanity homes in Southern California and the first JCWP homes to be awarded Silver LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification by the US Green Building Council. Today, Habitat LA incorporates building practices that exceed the LEED and CALGreen standard.
