new dates + location: volunteer internationally with habitat on a global village trip!

Join us on a Global Village Trip to experience another culture up-close and live like a local, all while helping communities that need safe, affordable housing. From September 14-22, 2019, San Diego Habitat is hosting its first-ever trip to Chiapas, Mexico. Your financial, emotional, and physical contributions can be life-changing for both those in the local community and in your own life for years to come.

The price for this trip is $1,932, which includes accommodations, meals, local transportation, cultural activities, and a direct donation to the Habitat for Humanity affiliate in Mexico. Airfare is the responsibility of the volunteer. $300 reserves your spot. Interested in fundraising the cost of your trip?

phase 1 of comm22 is complete!

Phase 1 of Comm22, our 11-home build site in Logan Heights, was completed in early December. Four families purchased and moved in to their newly constructed Habitat townhouses just in time to create holiday memories together. Construction began in early 2017, and phases 2 and 3 will be finished and sold later this year.

Hundreds of volunteers have helped contribute to Comm22 progress. Interested in joining us on-site? Click here to browse upcoming volunteer orientations and build opportunities as we work to create affordable homeownership solutions for local San Diego families.
