Our mission: Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
Our vision: A world where everyone has a decent place to live. All are welcome: We welcome volunteers and supporters to help serve people in need of decent housing regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views, or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people.
Under the Neighborhood Revitalization umbrella, Habitat Santa Barbara works to meet the community’s growing housing needs through home repairs that help lower income homeowners remain safely in their homes as well as neighborhood projects ranging from supporting community nonprofits with capital improvements to beautifying public spaces and parks. Habitat Santa Barbara’s home repair programs include the A Brush with Kindness program (external home repairs) and Critical Home Repair program (internal, partial, or whole-home repairs in critical-need areas). Home repairs depend on residents’ needs.
Mike has been a homeowner in Carpinteria for more than 20 years, but recently he has been unable to reach or navigate essential areas of his home due to the dimensions of his wheelchair. With the support of volunteers and donors, Habitat Santa Barbara is partnering with Mike to repair and upgrade parts of his home, improving his safety and quality of life. Mike described his home repairs as a “huge relief” and was proud to partner with Habitat Santa Barbara.
