About Beach Cities Friends
Beach Cities Friends was founded in 2002, we are a group of individuals in the South Bay area that gives back to their community by volunteering, raising funds and advocating for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles. We work to raise awareness for HFH GLA with events and fundraisers. Over the last eleven years, we have raised well over $800,000 to help build or renovate eight homes in partnership with HFH GLA.
Beach Cities Friends celebrates its 10th anniversary of our partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles this year. Since 2002, we have been fortunate to have many amazing supporters, including you. For that, we say Thank You.
We are overjoyed that together we can continue to support families in our communities, especially during these tough economic times. Each and every donation to Habitat for Humanity not only changes the lives of families, but also enriches
the community which receives greater benefit from our revitalization efforts.

Since 2002, Beach Cities Friends has had the privilege to partner with NINE homeowner families in Los Angeles and the South Bay!
Jimmy Carter Work Project
The 2007 Jimmy Carter Work Project brought hope, hammers and thousands of volunteers to Los Angeles to build 30 homes and repair nearly 70 more. The construction project featured the building of homes ranging in size from two-story duplexes to a three-story eight-plex. Beach Cities Friends was proud to partner with two families in the JCWP.
A Brush with Kindness
This program was launched alongside the Jimmy Carter Work Project, with the goal of assisting homeowners that cannot physically or financially afford to maintain their homes. This renovation project includes 70 homes that Habitat for Humanity will be helping to preserve and improve neighborhoods.
Lawndale Build Site
Our ninth home is located in the city of Lawndale and was completed in December of 2011.
We’d love to reduce the amount of mail we send! To help us with our database (so that we may inform you of the dates of our events) please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will NOT share your email with ANYONE! Saving $500 on postage is a big deal to us. 100% of your donations go directly to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles, and we cover all costs.
We raise our funds from neighbors, friends, corporations and public and private foundations. Please contact us if you have a contact or a lead who would be excited to hear about our efforts.
We are also looking for new and better events to raise funds and awareness. Please contact us with your ideas.
