Mission: Habitat for humanity of orange county transforms lives and communities by helping families in need purchase or renovate their own homes

Programs: Habitat for humanity of orange county, headquartered in santa ana, ca, is dedicated to ending substandard housing and building strong communities in orange county. Habitat uses donations of land, funding, materials, professional services and volunteer labor to build simple, decent homes which are sold to qualified low-income families for a 1% down payment, closing costs, and a long-term mortgage. Mortgage payments are recycled to build more habitat homes. Habitat families contribute 500 hours of "sweat equity" to the program by building their own home, helping another habitat family build a home, or working in some other area of the habitat organization. Habitat for humanity families and volunteers have built 185 homes and served 895 people in orange county since 1988. For more information, please visit www. Habitatoc. Org

Habitat for Humanity of Orange County has two ReStore Discount Home Improvement Centers that sell new and used home improvement items as a way to raise money to build homes. What better way to recycle your good re-useable kitchen cabinets - you keep them out of the landfill, get a tax deduction, help Habitat build homes and help another family remodel their home and enjoy your kitchen. I donate all of my books too!
