realty income

San Diego Habitat for Humanity and Realty Income Corporation came together to build better life stories for local hardworking families in need of decent, affordable housing.

Realty Income believes giving back to the community is an extension of its mission to improve the lives of its shareholders, its employees, and their families. Our partnership includes a donation of $100,000 and the hard work of 150 employee volunteers, the workforce of nearly the entire company, who helped frame homes of our newest affordable housing community in El Cajon.

Since the inception of the partnership four years ago, Realty Income has donated $425,000 and over 2,500 volunteer hours in support of Habitat’s programs. We are so proud to partner with Realty Income, and we can't thank their incredible staff enough for the support and dedication.
