About the SJV Habitat for Humanity Ministry
We are parishioners who work with Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley to build, rehab or repair houses in our local communities. We began our ministry in 2005 and have built new houses from the ground up and rehabbed existing homes in Antioch, Bay Point, Oakland, Martinez, and Walnut Creek.
- Build simple, decent, affordable houses with hardworking, low-income families in need.
- Advocate for affordable housing in Contra Costa County.
- Build community at SJV through ministry activities.
- Have fun together while helping others!
