About Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County

Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County, a locally-run and locally-funded affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, has provided homeownership opportunities for 56 Ventura County families and repaired more than 300 houses since 1983. Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County strengthens communities and fosters hope by bringing people together to build simple, decent houses in partnership with those in need. 

At Habitat for Humanity, we believe that everyone everywhere deserves a decent place to live. Homeowners are selected based on their need for housing, ability to repay a zero-interest, no-profit loan, and willingness to partner with Habitat for Humanity. We offer a “hand up”, not a hand out, empowering families who are willing to work hard to achieve their dream of homeownership.  Each Habitat for Humanity homeowner invests hundreds of hours to help build their home, and then purchases it with an affordable, zero interest mortgage.  

This year, we’re celebrating our 30th Anniversary with the theme “Much to Celebrate, More to Build.” Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County currently has enough donated land to provide housing for another 28 families in Santa Paula and Oxnard, but only after funding is secured for infrastructure and construction costs.  Thanks to partnerships with community leaders throughout the county, the affiliate has received funding commitments for numerous home preservation repairs and neighborhood revitalization projects in Ventura, Simi Valley, Camarillo, Meiners Oaks, and Oak Park.
