In addition to building healthy, affordable homes, San Diego Habitat strives to improve the quality of life by preserving existing housing stock in neighborhoods near our build sites. As we break ground on the construction of six new houses in National City, and with the preservation of entire neighborhoods in mind, we are excited to announce a no-cost home repair program for homeowners in National City.

To have the greatest impact on the community, our efforts will be focused on the blocks surrounding the new construction site at the corner of Harding Avenue and 18th Street. The National City Repair Program will offer home preservation repairs to residents who own their homes — including exterior painting, installation of sustainable landscaping, handrails and walkways, and fence repair/replacement. National City homeowners who are interested in learning more are encouraged to contact Habitat’s Neighborhood Revitalization department by calling 619-283-4663 x130.
