Empowering Our Youth
Imagine not having a safe place to come home to after school, enough light to do your homework or enough space to have a friend over. Thousands of young people in LA County are living in unsafe, overcrowded places and through Habitat for Humanity’s Youth Initiatives, volunteers ages 5-25 can help give these families a simple, decent place to call home.
The more people who volunteer, the more families we can help, so sign up today:
