Habitat for Humanity
of San Fernando & SCV
21031 Ventura Blvd, Suite 610
Woodland Hills, CA 91364
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 will continue their mission to serve low-income working families
but will also take off with their newest initiative for veterans by
giving at minimum 10 veteran families critical home repairs/disability
modifications and access to self-sufficiency services. Habitat will also
break ground on its 12 home community in Sylmar. 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.
