Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles

A nonprofit organization

$27,407 raised by 169 donors

Habitat LA was originally established in Long Beach where we built our very first home and we continue to serve the community more than 30 years later. Our current commitment is through our Community Building and our Washington Neighborhood Revitalization program (WNR), a collaborative effort integrating residents, community leaders, and over 30 non-profit organizations serving Long Beach. Residents and community leaders play a major role in how this program evolves.

Through WNR, we recently completed a 10 home development called Millennium Homes (on 14th Street between Pine and Pacific Ave) which is the site of our 1,001st home in Greater LA and began a 36 home development (14th St. and Locust St).

Our work goes beyond providing homeownership opportunities as we've launched programs to improve the quality of life within the Washington Neighborhood. The Safe Passage Program addresses safety concerns for neighborhood children as they walk to and from school. To promote leadership development amongst residents we host Resident Leadership trainings. We've collaborated with city officials to provide the community with Neighborhood Branding (e.g. installing banners to boost a sense of community) and Beautification Projects (e.g. mural installed at Washington Middle School) and Safety Projects (e.g. installing lights to increase safety in alleyways) and more.


"Habitat for Humanity not only gave us hope that we could be homeowners, they gave us the tools that put us on the path to make this hope and dream become a reality." Tiffany O. - Habitat LA Homeowner Long Beach, CA

"Owning a home means so much to me. Since having my son at the age of 18, I have always dreamed of giving him a better life and I will be forever grateful for this opportunity." Latora N. - Habitat LA Homeowner Long Beach, CA


Habitat LA was founded in 1990 with a vision of a world where every person has access to safe, decent, and affordable housing. Habitat LA brings together community stakeholders, government officials, faith organizations, corporations, and volunteers to partner with low-income families and individuals, building strong partnerships to improve our local neighborhoods and communities.
