Established in Chico, California in 1993, Habitat for Humanity of Butte County is one of the more than 1500 local Habitat for Humanity affiliates in the United States that work with local volunteers to build safe affordable homes for hardworking families. We have built more than 40 Habitat homes and have revitalized many Butte County neighborhoods, creating safe and vibrant communities where families can prosper and children can thrive.
We are self-governed and responsible for raising the funds we need to build homes for local families. Sales in our ReStore and generous donations from individuals and organizations provide the resources we need to construct Habitat homes.
The families who partner with us work side by side with volunteers to build their homes. Swinging hammers and wielding paint brushes, they are involved in every aspect of construction. Once settled into their new homes, Habitat for Humanity home owners quickly become active and valued members of the community, caring for their homes and joining their neighbors to create a friendly and safe environment for everyone.
Habitat for Humanity International was founded in 1976 on the belief that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety. In the last 40 years, Habitat for Humanity has helped more than 6.8 million people all over the world find strength, stability and independence through the construction of safe and affordable housing.
