Program History:

Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley revitalizes neighborhoods, builds affordable and sustainable housing solutions, and empowers families through successful homeownership. Since 1986, we have partnered with volunteers, the community, and qualified families with limited incomes to strengthen communities in Alameda, Contra Costa, and Santa Clara Counties.
Over the past 30 years Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley has served over 6,000 individuals in Alameda, Contra Costa, and Santa Clara counties by providing affordable homeownership opportunities to low-income families who meet three criteria:

Earn an income between 30%-80% of area median income, as defined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Have a need for housing.
Are willing to partner with Habitat for Humanity and contribute hundreds of hours of sweat equity hours to the construction of their own home, or their neighbor's home.
Based on these criteria our volunteer-based Family Selection Committee recommends families that will work to build a community of active homeowners.
