Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity of Orange County brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
What We Do
Habitat invites people from all walks of life to work together in partnership to build houses with families. Habitat for Humanity is not a charity or a give-away program. Habitat for Humanity offers homeownership to Orange County families who otherwise may not have the opportunity to own a home of their own. Volunteer labor is used to build homes to keep costs low for Habitat families. Families pay closing costs and invest 275 hours of labor into building their own homes and the homes of others. As Habitat homeowners pay their mortgages, the money is used to help build homes with other families. Habitat for Humanity of Orange County also contributes to building Habitat homes overseas by tithing a "home for a home." Since our start in 1984, HHOC has built more than 300 new homes locally and repaired more than 200 homes in our community.
