St. Monica Catholic Community is honored to support the mission of Habitat for Humanity by sponsoring volunteer builds in various locations in Southern California as well as in other states and countries.
We sponsor local volunteer builds, typically one Saturday per month between October and May. Everyone is welcome to participate! No experience or special skill is necessary—Habitat will provide the tools, and you will receive any necessary construction guidance on the builds themselves. Over the past few years, our local teams have contributed to home-building projects in the Los Angeles area, the San Fernando Valley, and Ventura County. We even participated in an unforgettable event—a Key Ceremony, which is the chance to welcome a family into their new home for the first time.
In addition to our local builds,we have also sponsored volunteer builds in places with great need for affordable housing: New Orleans, Louisiana; Isleta Pueblo, New Mexico; and Belfast, Northern Ireland.
To help support all these efforts and those of the St. Monica Catholic Community in general, we host an annual community party and participate in parish events.
