Thank you for your interest in becoming a Habitat homeowner

Since 1992, Habitat for Humanity San Bernardino Area has helped individuals and families achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter. We believe that everyone should have a safe, affordable place to call home. If you or someone you know is facing barriers to opportunity due to inadequate living conditions, we may be able to help.

To carry out our vision, we partner with individuals and families of all shapes and sizes, and all walks of life. By working with us from beginning to end, we can help prospective homeowners prepare for the various responsibilities of homeownership, including learning about personal finances, mortgages, home maintenance and repair, and much more.

Habitat’s path to homeownership is an important and in-depth process, requiring hard work, time, and dedication. All this helps to ensure the long-term success of Habitat homeowners. Click on the links below for general information about our Homeownership Program.
