Seeking to put God's love in action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Habitat for Humanity Fresno County does not build houses FOR families; we facilitate a partnership among families who demonstrate need, the ability to pay the mortgage, and a willingness to partner in the construction of their home. This partnership also engages community supporters who join the families in the home building process and provide both financial and in-kind support for building supplies and materials. In addition to new home construction, Habitat Fresno also hosts neighborhood revitalization projects, outreach events and operates the ReStores to build homes, community and hope to love our current housing stock.
For 31 years Habitat Fresno has radically changed lives in our community. To date, Habitat Fresno has improved housing conditions for 400 families through the work of over 12,000 volunteers.
