Homes 4 Families
formerly Habitat for Humanity
of San Fernando & SCV
21031 Ventura Blvd, Suite 610, Woodland Hills, CA 91364
Organization Description- The Habitat for Humanity of San Fernando & SCV was founded in 1990 as an affiliate for Habitat of Humanity International. They are a locally run, independent, non-profit organization serving North Los Angeles County and the Antelope Valley, building houses for low-income working families and veteran families. To date, we have built over 200 homes and are among the top 5% of Habitat affiliates nationwide to reach this goal. With the help of volunteers, they are building a new kind of Habitat, for a new generation.
In 2012, Habitat for Humanity SF/SCV continued their mission to serve low-income working families, but also began their newest initiative for veterans by giving at minimum 10 veteran families critical home repairs/disability modifications and access to self-sufficiency services. Habitat further built a 12 home community in Sylmar, Habitat for Heroes. Here they will build homes and provide self-sufficiency training that will empower some of our most deserving citizens: veterans and families of the fallen. Habitat continues Our mission to lift low-income working civilian and veteran families out of substandard housing and to offer them a gateway to the American Dream of homeownership so that they can build brighter economic futures. Currently we are building a 78 home veteran community with full wrap around services in Santa Clarita.  This is our Enriched Neighborhood Veteran Community.  Habitat has just purchased land in Palmdale to complete another 50 home community for veterans.
