Housing is Healthcare Build

Tuesday, May 7 – Saturday, May 25

Join us for a transformative three-week Habitat Build that merges the power of healthcare stakeholders in our community with the mission of Habitat for Humanity Lake County to address a critical social determinant of health: housing.

About the Event

Habitat for Humanity Lake County proudly presents the “Housing is Healthcare Build,” a collaborative effort aimed at highlighting the indispensable link between housing and health.

Why Housing Matters:

Research consistently shows that stable, safe housing is fundamental to individual and community health. Yet far too many individuals and families lack access to affordable housing, leading to a myriad of health challenges. From increased susceptibility to illnesses to heightened stress levels, the absence of adequate housing perpetuates cycles of poor health outcomes.

By recognizing housing as a vital social determinant of health, we affirm our commitment to holistic well-being and equitable access to essential resources. Together, we can break down barriers and build a healthier, more resilient community for all.

How You Can Get Involved:

  • Volunteer: Roll up your sleeves and join us on-site to contribute your time, skills, and passion to the construction of a new home. No prior experience is necessary—just a willingness to make a difference. Email [email protected] to inquire about a date!
  • Donate: Every contribution, no matter the size, helps us provide the materials and resources needed to build a safe, affordable home. Your generosity paves the way for brighter futures and healthier lives.
  • Spread the Word: Share our message far and wide. Together, we can raise awareness about the critical intersection of housing and health and inspire others to join our cause.


Join Us in Building Healthier Futures

The Housing is Healthcare Build is more than a construction project—it’s a testament to the transformative power of collaboration and intersecting priorities. Together, let’s build not just a home, but a foundation for better health and well-being for all members of our community.
