The SESLOC Cares Program, in partnership with News Channel 12, chose Habitat for Humanity SLO County to honor a valuable volunteer who helps our community thrive.

Jeannie Carpenter has dedicated two decades of her life to serving our community with Habitat SLO, and has actively participated in a wide range of projects from being a construction crew leader to volunteering on the creation of playhouses that bring joy to local children. Her involvement has contributed to Habitat’s overarching goal of building a stronger, more vibrant community. Congratulations, Jeannie!

Would you like to share the story of your partnership with Habitat SLO County?

We'd love to hear from volunteers, donors, or anyone in our community of supporters.

Vine Street Build Site Sept. 2023

Vine Street Build Progress

The early stages of construction don't always bring the excitement that seeing a near-finished structure does, but knowing this road will soon bring nine families home makes a little dirt path that much more meaningful.

Progress continues on the Vine St. Build Site where nine single-family homes will be built with the help of volunteer labor, donated materials, and community support.
