Habitat for Humanity International, a Georgia nonprofit corporation, is an ecumenical housing organization that seeks to eliminate poverty housing from the world and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. Habitat invites people from all walks of life to work together in partnership to help build houses with families in need.
As an officially recognized UCLA student group, HabitatUCLA works to build, educate, advocate, and fundraise within the UCLA community and beyond in order to eliminate substandard housing and help make affordable housing a reality for families in need. The UCLA campus chapter of Habitat for Humanity International has been set up to assist Habitat by working with any local affiliate or with Habitat’s international headquarters:
- by working in cooperation with people in need to create a better human habitat in which to live and work;
- by working in cooperation with other agencies and groups which have a kindred purpose;
- by enabling members of the UCLA community, such as undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, staff, alumni, and neighboring residents, to take part in Habitat’s work
Our vision statement is “Take action! Promote affordable housing to educate, motivate, and inspire good-will in the community!”
Our campus chapter is officially affiliated with the San Fernando/Santa Clarita Valley Habitat for Humanity.
