About Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization that seeks to put love into action by building homes, communities and hope. Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every person should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.

All are Welcome
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento 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 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.
Habitat for Humanity is opposed to any form of discrimination, exploitation, and abuse, including slavery, coerced conscription, prostitution, trafficking of people for any purpose, vulnerable adult or child abuse, and dangerous or exploitative child labor. In the design and implementation of programs and policies, we seek always to work without bias; to do no harm; and to eliminate (rather than contribute to) the harm of discrimination, exploitation, and abuse.
All Habitat representatives, including volunteers, are expected to adhere to Habitat’s Safeguarding Behavior Commitments as set forth in Policy 34: Safeguarding, which can be found HERE.
