They protected our home.
Now it’s our turn to protect theirs.

This fall, join us as we raise hammers — and funds — to support Habitat’s VetRepair and affordable homebuilding programs. All event proceeds directly support the construction and preservation of homes throughout San Diego County.

We have limited build spots for individual fundraisers to join in this year’s preservation project. Fill out our interest form to learn more, or support this work with a contribution to the event or in honor of a loved one. Through this support, we can maintain safe and healthy local housing stock and most importantly, help more veteran families find stability and self-reliance in a home of their own.

Dedicate your donation in honor or in memory of someone.

When you donate in honor or in memory of someone, you can choose to have the recipient notified when you make your gift. You also have the option of sending an e-card with a personalized message to your recipient.

Why Veterans Build?

Years as a Veterans Build affiliate: 6
Veterans Build events hosted: 13

San Diego County is home to one of the highest concentrations of veterans in the country, which makes San Diego Habitat geographically well suited to serve the needs of our veteran population.

Veterans Build is a national initiative that provides volunteer, homeownership, and employment opportunities to U.S. veterans, military service members, and their families. We serve local veterans through our VetRepair program and Veterans Build events in which we partner with individuals, philanthropic organizations and corporations, and military groups working to make a difference at the homes of local veterans countywide.
