Hollywood for Habitat for Humanity Build-A-Thon

In November of 2014, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles brought together more than 500 volunteers to revitalize a neighborhood in the City of Long Beach during its Hollywood for Habitat for Humanity Build-A-Thon.  The event also engaged and recognized veterans for their contribution to our country in honor of Veterans Day. Check back for more information on our next Hollywood for Habitat for Humanity Build-A-Thon.  Click to view photos from last year’s event.

Power Women Power Tools

Power Women Power Tools (PWPT) is an annual invitation‐only, all‐women build event hosted by Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles and is a part of our Hollywood for Habitat for Humanity program. Women from all walks of life come together during this special build event in Los Angeles to build homes for families and individuals in need of decent, sustainable and affordable housing.

Many of the volunteers at PWPT are corporate executives from Fortune 500 companies, faith community leaders and elected officials, production companies, and the music industry, as well as the cast and crew of several TV shows and feature films. Every year the event attracts women who join together to make a difference building homes and leave feeling inspired and empowered. If you are interested in a sponsorship opportunity at this annual high profile event, please reach out to Jennifer Wise at jwise@habitatla.org.

Other Events

Groundbreaking, Wall Raising, Kickoff’s and Dedications: Nearly every Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) home begins with a Groundbreaking, Kick-off or Wall-raising ceremony which is a symbolic representation of new opportunities and hope.

Dedications: Following the completion of the Habitat LA build, the site is dedicated and presented to the new partner homeowners. The celebration of the completion of the build and the beginning of life in a new home is a very special celebration for funding and community partners, volunteers, staff and the new homeowners.
