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.

We have exciting news!  Six of the Culver City homes that you helped to build have been completed, and the homeowners have moved in, including our friend Kaoru and her three sons!

 

To celebrate, Habitat LA hosted a safe & socially-distanced Caravan Parade on Saturday, May 30.  Several of our St. Monica Habitat volunteers were a part of the fun. Cars, festooned with balloons, posters & pom-poms lined-up at Vet's Memorial Park in Culver City, winding their way through the city to Globe Avenue, the location of six newly completed Habitat homes (with four additional homes under construction).

 

Driving past the beautiful homes, decorated by tons of balloons & thank-you posters, there was a wild and joyous frenzy: of horn-honking, waving from the drivers, and an enthusiasm matched by our new home owners and their families. The energy, smiles, hellos and happiness shared that day was enough to power a city for days!

 

We look forward to the completion of the additional four homes, and to what we know will be another joyous celebration!
