Help Save the AmeriCorps Program in San Diego!

We need your help! Congress is threatening to cut funding for the Corporation for National and Community Service - the federal agency that oversees national service programs like AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps VISTA. SDHFH has partnered with AmeriCorps members for years, and they have been indispensable in helping us serve the community. Click here to make your voice heard and let Congress know that you support the funding of National Service initiatives.

ReStore Customer Builds a Mini Town with Recycled Treasures
One of our favorite ReStore customers, Rick, has spent the last decade transforming his 3-acre ranch into a fantastic mini town, built with unique finds from his treasure hunts, including items from the ReStore.  Rick's village is designed and built from scratch and can be described as a collection of eclectic salvaged items and family heirlooms.  Each building in the tiny town is themed - Martha's Kitchen, The Hansel and Gretel House, Foxx's Mercantile, Grandpa's Attic, Rusty's Saloon, and Blake's' Barbershop.  The amount of detail and vision it took to build this amazing place is incredible, and Rick was kind enough to offer us a tour recently, where we learned the stories behind his creations.  Click here to see more! 
Sponsor Spotlight: MBK Senior Living
The San Diego Habitat for Humanity Playhouse Program provides a half-day corporate teambuilding event assembling and decorating durable playhouses for children. After 3-4 hours of paint, labor and a lot of creativity, the finished playhouses are given to children through partnerships with several local charities serving families in need. 


MBK Senior Living, LLC, headquartered in Irvine, CA, is a company actively involved in the acquisition, development and third-party management of high quality senior living communities throughout the western United States. Led by President Terry Howard, MBK's mission is to exceed the quality, service and care expectations of those they serve.


Recently, the MBK Team constructed five beautiful playhouses, donating $12,500 in total to SDHFH's home-building efforts and demonstrating the company's commitment to delivering high standards of service. This donation will enable families to provide a world for their children that they never dreamed would be possible and an environment that will foster their children's development and success. 


Thank you for your generous support, MBK Senior Living! To schedule your corporate teambuilding day, please contact Shandy Arwood at
