From Our Editors

Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1976 with the goal of building homes in partnership with families across the country in need of affordable housing. Since then, the organization has grown into a behemoth of goodwill in more than 70 countries, bringing housing financing to villages in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, promoting sustainable building and energy efficiency, and responding to overwhelming need during natural disasters.

But the organization is best known for its home-building projects. When Habitat for Humanity builds a home, it enlists the help of the family who will be living there. They dedicate their time and sweat to completing the project alongside volunteers, neighbors, donors, churches, and other supporters, engendering a spirit of renewal and fellowship. Once they move in, families pay a no-profit mortgage. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving fund that promotes the construction of more homes. In 2009, Habitat launched the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative, whose holistic community development approach promotes construction, repair, and rehabilitation of affordable housing in partnership with low-income families in markets hit hard by foreclosures. To date, Habitat has helped build and repair more than 600,000 houses and served more than three million people across the globe, welcoming people of all races, religions, and nationalities to partner in its mission as a nonprofit Christian housing organization. Since embarking in 1986, the East Bay/Silicon Valley division of Habitat has put roofs over the heads of over 380 families in Alameda, Contra Costa, and Santa Clara Counties.
