Since 1988, San Diego Habitat for Humanity (SDHFH) has been working with community partners, government agencies, volunteers, and civically-minded corporations to provide safe affordable homeownership housing for economically disenfranchised people and veterans. Active throughout the region, we build, repair, and weatherize housing; promote sound environmental practices; develop and advocate for affordable housing policies; help create vibrant community spaces; and provide other services – most notably, a retail store – that contribute to building the capacity of the people, communities, and families we serve. SDHFH operates with an annual organizational budget of approximately $3.5 million and a construction budget of $3-6 million.
SDHFH is an independent nonprofit organization that is part of an international network of organizations dedicated to advancing human dignity through shelter. While we are historically rooted in Christian social justice values, we are spiritually inclusive. SDHFH welcomes anyone regardless of race, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, political views, or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. We are dedicated to diversity, equity and inclusion.
SDHFH is led by an active board of 19 prominent civic leaders who work with the President/CEO to steward our organization. Forty plus full-time staff dedicate themselves to our work along with thousands of volunteers. Learn more at https://www.sandiegohabitat.org/
