What is Home Builders Blitz?

The Home Builders Blitz is a partnership between San Diego Habitat for Humanity and the local building community that allows us to build more homes — quickly. We work together with San Diego builders and contractors to construct new homes — from the ground up — in only five days! Builders leverage their industry relationships to seek donations of building materials and labor with the goal of constructing homes at zero cost to Habitat.

Quick facts:

  • Years running:

Why Home Builders Blitz?

The rising cost and scarcity of available land, skilled labor shortages, and restrictive building laws and regulations have made affordable homes increasingly difficult to produce – not only for our organization, but also for professionals in the building industry. The Home Builders Blitz bridges the gap between Habitat and the builders, suppliers, banking entities, and so many others in the private sector who partner with us to help families achieve long-term stability and self-reliance.
