Building Families a Future Campaign
Our campaign will enable us to build 250 affordable homes and complete 400 critical home repairs. Working together we will:
communities by building affordable homes and thwarting displacement for families of color in the Bay Area.
change by advocating and promoting policies and systems to support and facilitate access to affordable homeownership in our region and state.
our volunteers and partners to drive more affordable homeownership as a fundamental component in solving the unprecedented housing crisis.
Together, with your support, we will build 250 permanently affordable homes by 2027, laying the foundation for a stable, secure future for thousands of our neighbors and their children.
The Bay Area is home to so much innovation, we can surely rise to meet this affordable housing challenge together and make an actual difference to keep families in our communities.
Habitat Greater San Francisco preserves homeownership for the most vulnerable in our communities. By making significant critical home repairs on 400 homes by 2027 we will ensure these homeowners, most often the rock of their communities, hold on to their most precious and hard earned asset.
These seniors and long-term residents in some of our regionâ€™s most underserved districts have little or no options to remain in their homes and age in place without this partnership with Habitat Greater San Francisco.
Our average home repair beneficiary is 67 years old and has lived in their home for 37 years. The majority have had careers working as teachers, healthcare assistants or municipal workers.
â€œBeing a homeowner feels unreal to us, especially since we came so close to having to leave the city. Owning a home brings a sense of security we simply havenâ€™t had before.â€– Jen, Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco homeowner
