What is AmeriCorps?
AmeriCorps is a national service program that provides thousands of Americans of all ages and backgrounds an opportunity to meet critical community needs. At Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA), AmeriCorps members play an essential role in transforming the lives of the families and individuals we serve.
