HOW TO APPLY
Home Starts With You
For nearly 30 years Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) has built homes and fulfilled dreams in partnership with hardworking individuals and families. Through a collaborative effort, Habitat LA works towards increasing the affordable housing stock in our community. Check out these programs to see if you might be eligible to partner with us.
Habitat LA's core homeownership program provides safe, decent, affordable housing to hardworking families in need.
Existing homeowners in need may be able to take advantage of Habitat LA's Home Preservation Program. We repair and renovate homes for low-income homeowners who cannot perform the work themselves.
Education and Counseling
Habitat LA offers guidance to help homebuyers and homeowners make better-informed decisions about their housing situation. We offer pre-purchase and post-purchase (non-delinquency) group education and individual counseling.
Habitat LA doesn't just build individual houses. We work to eliminate substandard housing, one block at a time. Breaking the cycle of poverty, improving educational outcomes for children, and increasing healthy lifestyles for all residents revitalizes entire neighborhoods.
Habitat LA builds community by bringing together volunteers, corporations, faith-based groups, and public officials to improve the quality of life for all residents.
Supporting families affected by disasters requires immediate, comprehensive and collaborative actions. Long after humanitarian aid organizations have completed their relief work, the need for quality shelter and housing remains for months and years.
Habitat LA helps first-time homebuyers looking to purchase a home in greater Los Angeles County. Eligible households can qualify for up to $100,000 in mortgage assistance to help with the down payment on a single-family home, condo, or townhome.
Being a homeowner means everything to me and this journey has allowed me to teach my children that with integrity and hard work anything is possible.
