A Hand Up Not A Hand Out
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (HFH GLA) builds and repairs homes in partnership with hardworking, low-income families and individuals. We offer a hand up, not a hand out, by providing a once in a lifetime opportunity to build a long-term investment for your future.
Habitat homes and home repair services are affordable thanks to government subsidies, volunteer labor and community support. Selected Habitat homebuyers pay a modest down payment, invest up to 500 hours of “Sweat Equity” in the construction of their home and are responsible for monthly mortgage payments and upkeep. In addition, HFH GLA prepares Habitat Homeowners to be successful through a comprehensive homeownership education program. For more on our Homeownership Program, click HERE.
Existing homeowners in need of home repairs contribute to the completion of their repairs by working alongside staff and volunteers. Repairs are either provided free of cost or made repayable through a deferred, zero-percent interest note recorded on the property. For more on our Home Repair Program, click HERE
