Working for the Community

Our goal in community outreach is to provide our local community with the latest information about what we’re achieving here at Central Valley Habitat for Humanity.

We strive to connect churches, civic groups, volunteers and more so we can better provide those in need with a safe, decent place to live.

We build strength, stability, and self-reliance.

Supporting local families in need of safe, decent, affordable housing.

Habitat for Humanity 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.
