Habitat for Humanity of San Joaquin County, Inc. is a non-profit Christian housing ministry dedicated to helping low-income families improve the conditions in which they live. A fund created from gifts and the ReStore's net profit serves as capital for building homes. Construction is a cooperative effort involving both volunteer workers and recipients of the home. The chosen family pays their property tax and homeowners insurance along with the mortgage payment which is interest free. The capital, originally used to build a house, is returned to the fund through the family’s monthly payments over a 20-year period. This money is used to build more houses as the local HABITAT committee decides. Board meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at 1038 West Fremont Street, Stockton.
Habitat for Humanity ReStore accepts donations of new and gently used home-improvement items. These items are sold to the public at great prices. ReStore is always in need of volunteers to help move items around as they are sold, assist customers and to sweep up. Volunteers with trucks are also needed to pick up donations whenever convenient for the volunteer.
The Cars for Homes is a vehicle donation program that helps the local Habitat for Humanity build homes. It is quick and easy to donate a car, truck, boat, RV, motorcycle or construction vehicle. The donation may be eligible for a tax deduction. Please call (877) 277-4344 for more information.
