On the eastside of Santa Barbara, Habitat for Humanity is currently building 12 new affordable townhomes for local, low-income families. To learn more about this important project please click here.
Volunteers are needed every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at the Canon Perdido build site. Sign up to volunteer online or contact our Volunteer Coordinator at Rose@sbhabitat.org.
We have raised 78% of the funds needed to build the homes. We intend to raise $850,000 over the next six months to successfully complete this project. Will you help us?
