Disaster Relief Fund

When disaster hits close to home, the Disaster Relief Fund helps residents rebuild.

The Habitat for Humanity San Luis Obispo Disaster Relief Fund is a local effort modeled after the Habitat for Humanity International Disaster Response program, which seeks to connect volunteers and donors with individuals needing assistance, support, and partnerships as we work to repair and rebuild our community in a time of need.

The fund was introduced in January 2023 after a series of storms produced historic rainfall across the state of California, causing significant damage in San Luis Obispo County.

Support the Disaster Relief Fund and help rebuild our community.

Due to storm damage at our San Luis Obispo ReStore location, our own storage and staging space has been reduced. Consequently, we will not be accepting in-kind donations of furniture, fixtures, or building materials through this campaign.
