About Habitat for Humanity of the Coachella Valley

Habitat for Humanity of the Coachella Valley is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God's love into action by building homes, communities and hope. Habitat for Humanity of the Coachella Valley is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.

build great houses

All are welcome

Habitat for Humanity of the Coachella Valley has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.


About Habitat for Humanity International

Founded in Americus, Georgia, USA, in 1976, Habitat for Humanity today operates around the globe and has helped build, renovate and repair more than 800,000 decent, affordable houses sheltering more than 4 million people worldwide.


What We Do

The ultimate goal of Habitat for Humanity is to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the face of the earth by building safe, decent, affordable housing. Habitat is not a giveaway program. It is a partnership in which those who benefit from the program are involved directly in every aspect of the mission.


We achieve affordability because:
  • We receive a percentage of building materials from generous sponsors, as well as substantial discounts from major suppliers
  • A large percentage of the labor needed to build a Habitat house is performed by volunteers, including 200 hours of "sweat equity" contributed by the partner family
  • We sell the homes at cost, and use the proceeds from our mortgages to help build more homes.

Each partner family must be willing and able to:
  • Make a modest down payment and pay some closing costs
  • Pay low mortgage payments that include principal, taxes and insurance on the property
  • Have the time to devote at least 200 hours of "sweat equity" in construction, events and attend seminars to learn about homeownership
