About Us

About Habitat for Humanity Lake County

We believe everyone deserves a safe, affordable place to call home. Since our founding, we have built over 200 homes for our neighbors in Lake County. Together, we can build great things.
Habitat for Humanity Lake County’s unique and empowering model brings together groups of dedicated volunteers and partner families to build safe, affordable homes. We are committed to building the quality of life, health, and economic prosperity of our county by producing, preserving, and advocating for affordable homeownership – because homes and families are the foundation of successful communities.

 

Our Mission

Habitat for Humanity Lake County brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.

 

Our Vision

Inspired by a vision where everyone has a safe, affordable place to live, we seek to improve the well-being of individuals and families and interrupt generational cycles of poverty in our community through homeownership.
