What is Corporate Partner Summit?

This annual invitation-only event brings Habitat together with our corporate partners to share the impact their investments have made — and continue to make — for San Diego families in need of improved housing. We share an inspiring morning together, network, and get an insider’s look into housing issues in our region from expert panelists.

Why Corporate Partner Summit?

San Diego’s generous local companies have an interest in doing what they can to provide access to workforce housing that is affordable and close to jobs. We enjoy being able to discuss housing challenges and collaborating on solutions that ensure happier, healthier workers.

Amplify your impact.

Demonstrate your corporate commitment to community impact while making a tangible, lasting difference in San Diego.
