Our mission is to provide homes for those in need. Buying a home for your family helps build a home for theirs. When you purchase your home using a Home for a Home agent or mortgage broker, they donate a percentage of their commission to build a home for a family in critical need. With the commission from your home purchase, we’re funding the construction of safe, secure homes in the poorest area of highland Guatemala. www.homeforahome.org
At Habitat for Humanity, we build. We build because we believe that everyone, everywhere, should have a healthy, affordable place to call home. More than building homes, we build communities, we build hope and we build the opportunity for families to help themselves. Volunteers are the heart of Habitat for Humanity. www.habitat.org
San Francisco AIDS Foundation [SFAF] works to end the HIV epidemic in the city where it began, and eventually everywhere. Established in 1982, our mission is the radical reduction of new infections in San Francisco because we refuse to accept HIV as inevitable. Through education, advocacy and direct services for prevention and care, we are confronting HIV in communities most vulnerable to the disease. www.sfaf.org
Giving back is something that has been close to my heart since I can remember. It started by volunteering in the community through after-school youth programs. Now 15+ years later, I have learned to understand that it has actually been a true inner passion, something that fulfills me and have the need to do as a human being. My ongoing weekly involvement with the San Francisco AIDS Foundation has become my most recent devotion, with goal to eventually be involved on a Board of Directors level.
