cars for homes

Donate a vehicle to Habitat for Humanity's vehicle donation program, Cars for Homes, to build strength and stability for local families. 
Your vehicle donation is one more way that you can support Habitat for Humanity's work in San Diego. It's quick and easy to donate, and it may count as a tax deduction.
San Diego Habitat is pleased to welcome two new members to the Board of Directors, Xiomara Arroyo and Olympia Beltran.

everyone can make a difference

We'd like to give a special thank you to the Miller family! Tricia and her four children - Blake, Caiden, Logan (9 year-old triplets!), and Jordyn (5) recently came by our office to tour the site and drop off a generous donation in person. The Miller family, along with the help of friends and neighbors, collected cans and bottles throughout the year to raise money for charity. They've donated to various organizations in the past, and this year they decided to donate to San Diego Habitat! We had a great time showing them around and teaching them about the Habitat mission. Thank you for all your support - your donations help us build strength, stability, and self-reliance in the San Diego community.
