Habitat works all over the world, transforming lives and communities through housing.

As a global organization delivering local impact, Habitat is uniquely positioned to address the world’s shelter crisis.

The Habitat for Humanity network is made up of independent, local affiliates in all 50 states, including your local affiliate here in San Diego. Habitat for Humanity International leads our work in developing countries, which San Diego Habitat supports through our annual tithe.

Habitat’s international work focuses on increasing access to homeownership and housing finance, improving housing affordability and quality, helping communities prepare for and respond to natural disasters, building strong and resilient neighborhoods, and providing shelter and support services to the most vulnerable.

Areas of focus:

construction, rehab, + repair
disaster risk reduction + response
market development
orphans + vulnerable groups
water, sanitation, + hygiene

Habitat for Humanity International works in over 70 developing countries worldwide.

Your support builds stronger, safer communities both near and far.

Your donations not only help local families thrive — you also make an impact through homebuilding efforts across the globe. Each year, San Diego Habitat tithes a percentage of unrestricted contributions to support the work of Habitat for Humanity International’s global homebuilding efforts.
