Support Us

When you donate to Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley, you’re giving a family a hand up, not a hand out. You’re giving a family the opportunity to transform their lives with the strength, stability, and sense of empowerment that come with homeownership. As a four-star charity on Charity Navigator, you can trust that Habitat EBSV will put your support toward making the most impact.

“Homeownership is important for my family because moving around is difficult with small children, and my kids need a stable, secure place to live.”

Bianca, Habitat Homeowner
