$50 for 50 by 50 #26: Habitat for Humanity Los Angeles

I’m turning 50 this year and instead of whining about it, I’m trying to do something positive by donating $50 to 50 different charities before I’m 50 years old.

Since our founding in 1990, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) has built, rehabilitated and repaired more than 700 homes locally.

Habitat LA helps to build affordable housing in 112 cities and unincorporated areas in Los Angeles County, including 70 communities within the City of Los Angeles.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people.

In short, Habitat welcomes all individuals and companies who donate used building materials, volunteers, and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion.

As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
