Mission, Vision and Values


At Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco our mission is to provide local families with a springboard to secure, stable futures through affordable homeownership, financial literacy and neighborhood revitalization.


With input from volunteers, partner homeowners, donors, community leaders and staff, Habitat Greater San Francisco’s Board of Directors approved a plan to meet ambitious goals by 2020.
Under the 2020 Vision, we plan to:

  • Build 400 more homes in Marin, San Francisco and the Peninsula: several new developments have been proposed in all three counties served by the organization.
  • Deepen our community impact by renovating 200 more homes and 50 neighborhood facilities, and helping more families to qualify for homeownership through financial skill-building programs.
  • Leverage Habitat's highly visible brand to raise awareness of the local Habitat Greater San Francisco affiliate and stimulate more involvement through volunteerism and philanthropy.
  • Dramatically increase revenue generation through fundraising, community support and a new Habitat ReStore.


Habitat Greater San Francisco provides a hand-up, not a hand-out for families in desperate need of improved living conditions. Our homeowners invest 500 hours of "sweat equity" to help build their own homes as well as additional time for homeowner workshops. Houses are sold to partner families at no profit and are financed with affordable, zero interest mortgages.
