Our history

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 with eligible applicants. We have built over 50 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 applicants. Sales in our ReStore, generous donations from individuals and organizations, and grants 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 homeowners 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. 

Timeline of Habitat for Humanity of Butte County. Beginning in 1993 when it was established, up until the 30th year anniversary in 2023.

2023 marked the 30th Anniversary of Habitat for Humanity of Butte County. 

To date, we have built over 50 homes in Butte County. 17 of those homes have been built since the Camp Fire.

Our future is promising for continued growth in building more houses in Chico and Paradise for those eligible.
