Habitat for Humanity Lake County
At Habitat for Humanity Lake County, we believe that every veteran family deserves a decent place to call home. Our Veterans Build Program works to empower veterans through home ownership opportunities and camaraderie building events.
Habitat Lake County is actively addressing the lack of affordable housing by partnering with military service members, their families, and veterans to help build and repair affordable housing. Habitat Lake County's hand-up not a hand-out approach asks partner families to invest sweat-equity hours to build their home and volunteer with us.
