Habitat for Humanity of Southern Santa Barbara County is a nonprofit committed to building strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.
We partner with low-income individuals and families in southern Santa Barbara County to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat Homeowners build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With our help, these homeowners achieve the support and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.
Our Mission: Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
Our Vision: A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
All Are Welcome: We welcome volunteers and supporters to help serve people in need of decent housing regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people.
