  • A Gift From the Heart Builds Houses

    It only seems like yesterday that I sat down to write this very same blog and again  the holidays are in full swing and Christmas is almost here!


    At Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio, we like to take a moment to remind you each year that we offer a great gift solution for that hard-to-buy-for-friend or family member, or for that special someone you just want to honor in a unique way.  We can also offer you an escape from the hustle and bustle of holiday season, giving you time to really sit down and remember what the season is all about.


    Rather than fighting the crowds to find that perfect gift for your loved one, why not make aGift donation in their honor to Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio? Then all you have to do is sit back and relax.  Habitat will take care of ...

  • We Are Thankful!!

    At this time of year, as we reflect upon all that we have to be thankful for, we at Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio want you to know how grateful we are for you, our loyal supporters and partners of Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio.   


    Without our volunteers, sponsors and individual donors, the work of HFHSA could not happen.


    Because of you, 682 hardworking, low-income families in San Antonio will get to spend their holidays this year in the comfort and safety of their own simple, decent and affordable home.


    We are so blessed to have such a wonderful and supporting Habitat family.



    With Sincerest Thanks and Wishing You Happy Holidays.

  • Pick up a hammer for a unique Valentine's Day!

    Looking for something fun, meaningful and unusual to do this Valentine’s Day?  Tired of the “no date on Valentine’s Day blues” or just want escape the tradition and try something new?


    Why not trade hearts and chocolates for hammers and nails by participating in Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio’s special Valentine's Day Singles build?


    Set for Saturday, Feb. 14, the event will be held from 7:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in HFHSA’s Palo Alto Community.  Volunteers will participate in the construction of eight homes that will be under construction in the neighborhood.


    Participation is free but donations will gladly be accepted.  I can’t think of anything more meaningful (and yes, maybe even romantic) than helping a family in need achieve the dream of homeownership. If you just happen to meet a new friend and the romantic in you still wants candles and chocolate, the build day will ...

  • A Gift from the Heart Builds Houses

    Christmas is almost here!  The days seem to be speeding by at a pace I can hardly keep up with.  Every year I promise myself to save more, get more organized and be ready for Christmas before it gets here.


    Well, guess what?  I’ve remained true to form and I’m faced with another hustle- and bustle-filled holiday with a mile-long list of people I still need to buy for.


    If you are anything like me, there are always a few on that list who just seem impossible to buy for.  They generally already have it and if they don’t, they just go out and buy what they want!


    I am always on the lookout for a meaningful gift for that “hard-to-buy-for” person.  Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio has a perfect gift option for Christmas or any time of the year.


    Rather than fighting the crowds ...
