  • Join HFHSA in the social networking world!

    We cannot turn on the television, or pick up a newspaper or magazine without reading about “Twittering” or what’s happening on a myriad of “social networking” sites.  What is all this about?

    At Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio our main goal is to eliminate substandard housing in our city by building simple, decent and affordable homes.  We want to put as many lower income families in brand new homes of their own as possible, and help these families lift themselves out of inadequate living conditions.  And we are doing just that – more than 600 families have been served by our program since its founding in 1976.

  • Join us on a Hab-i-Tour!

    Even though February is barely half-over, spring is already in the air. Why not take advantage of some of the beautiful weather and join Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio on a Hab-i-tour?

It only lasts an hour so the commitment is minimal and you’ll walk away with the reward of knowing just what an impact HFHSA has made and is still making in San Antonio. You’ll also get a brief look into the lives of the hardworking and dedicated families we serve.

    The tour leaves promptly at 1:00 p.m. from the Habitat offices at 311 Probandt and will return at 2:00 p.m. Upon ...
