Small in size, but mighty to our mission.

Playhouses provide a secret world where kids can foster their development, leadership, and creativity.

Playhouses are built by sponsoring volunteer groups and are offered, at no cost, to Habitat homeowners and to the children of local veterans and active duty personnel. San Diego Habitat also partners with local organizations to distribute playhouses to children throughout San Diego County.

The funds raised through sponsorships support Habitat’s mission of building real homes, communities, and hope.


Playhouses are built with love by local volunteers.

Playhouses are built throughout the year. After being assembled and decorated, playhouses are gifted to families, nonprofits, children’s centers in the San Diego community, or the Habitat ReStores.
