what we do


Across the country – and throughout the Bay Area – we are coming together to fight the effects of the coronavirus pandemic and work to mitigate its enormous economic impact. At Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco we are all too aware of the precarious housing situation faced by many of our region’s working families. It is inevitable, without drastic action, that this position will rapidly worsen and that many will face the irrecoverable consequences of eviction, repossession, and displacement. We are working with federal, state and local authorities to address this threat.

Learn more about our advocacy on this page and see how we promote affordable homebuilding and champion affordable homeownership in San Francisco, San Mateo, and Marin.
