Habitat for Humanity Builds Homes for Local Families in Santa Cruz CountyHabitat for Humanity Santa Cruz is a great non-profit organization that sets out to create affordable housing to low income families in need. This is an independently operated and locally funded chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Homes are built for local residents using donated supplies and community man-power. Qualifying families who live and work in Santa Cruz County will receive affordable homeownership with a zero percent mortgage from the HfHSCC; however, this is not a giveaway program. Applicants must prove a need for housing, provide a down payment and be able to make monthly mortgage payments. With local support, this program allows deserving residents of Santa Cruz County to gain economic stability and build a brighter future for their children.

Santa Cruz County Volunteers

Santa Cruz County volunteers are what help make this program possible. It's a great way to give to a family in need and contribute to community events. In over 23 years, the Habitat for Humanity Santa Cruz County chapter has built 34 homes. Local Santa Cruz volunteers are involved in every step of the process. A wide range of skills are needed for things like fundraising, construction, administration, advocacy, committee work and more.
