home builders blitz 2018

San Diego Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. We are doing just that during our 2018 Home Builders Blitz from June 4th - June 8th at the future site of five new Habitat homes at 585 Ballantyne Street. Learn more

Working with Clark Construction, McCarthy Builders, and the City of El Cajon, Habitat will be constructing two homes - from the ground up - in just five days! Visit our blog to read about our future Habitat homeowners who will be moving into the completed Blitz houses.

san diego habitat ambassador program
Volunteer Ambassadors serve as liaisons between San Diego Habitat for Humanity and the San Diego community to promote the mission of San Diego Habitat to donors, volunteers, future homeowners, and others. By hosting fundraising events, participating in community outreach, and promoting the organization via word of mouth and social media, San Diego Habitat will reach more people with its message, not only raising funds and awareness, but also providing the ability to build and repair more homes for low-income families in San Diego.

We are proud to partner with AimLoan ! They first contributed to San Diego Habitat with a cash donation back in 2013. In 2016, they took it a step further by encouraging their entire team to get involved to build 8 playhouses. They've continued that tradition for the past three years, building and donating a total of 24 playhouses for families in San Diego! Since 2013, AimLoan has contributed $190,540 to San Diego Habitat. We're so grateful for their incredible team, and we can't thank them enough for the continued support!

AimLoan was founded in 1998 as an Internet Direct  Lender , committed to using technology to deliver savings, transparency and convenience to mortgage customers. 

Since then they have funded over $21 billion in mortgages to over 81,000 homeowners throughout the country. Two-thirds of their business comes from repeat customers and their referrals and they are thankful for the thousands of positive  Customer Reviews  posted on their website.
