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
