Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley brings people together to build homes, community, and hope. We revitalize neighborhoods, build affordable and sustainable housing solutions, and empower families through successful homeownership. Since 1986, we have partnered with volunteers, the community, and qualified families with limited incomes to strengthen communities in Alameda, Contra Costa, and Santa Clara Counties.
Despite the crash in real estate prices across the country, the San Francisco Bay Area continues to be one of the most expensive and least affordable housing markets in the United States. Fewer than 40% of families in our service area can afford to purchase a home. For hard-working families whose earnings place them in the low to very-low income classification, finding a decent, affordable place to live is an extremely difficult, if not impossible task. The current need for additional housing is unmet, and every day the number of families that are living in substandard and overcrowded housing continues to rise. As more families seek opportunities in the Bay Area and the population grows, the lack of affordable housing is becoming more pronounced and distressing. Families need homes. Our community needs solutions.
With less money available for affordable housing due to the loss of redevelopment in California, Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley faces a serious challenge in serving more families. Now more than ever, we need you to join us in giving Bay Area families the chance to build a better life by making a donation today. Will you take a stand?
