Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio
Our 2020 Build
Thank you to everyone who supported our Fall 2020 Habitat build with your time, talent, and treasure.
Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio is celebrating the completion of 14 homes at our newest build site, Rancho Carlota. Fourteen hard-working families, including the St. Francis-sponsored Gonzaba family, will be able to spend the holiday season in their new homes. Since we could not hold our house dedication in person, we invite you to check out our virtual celebration of our fall build at https://vimeo.com/481304755. This video shows how much your support touches the lives of our hard-working families. Congratulations to our partnering families!
Beginning in 1999, we have teamed with Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio, Inc. (HFHSA) to build an affordable home every fall here in San Antonio. Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio, Inc. (HFHSA) is an ecumenical Christian non-profit housing organization working in partnership with God’s people in need to build decent and affordable houses without interest or profit, thereby witnessing God’s love in action. You can watch a video featuring St. Francis parishioner Julie Mellin talking about our parish’s partnership with Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio, Inc. at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x11UcpocRzM.

Our 2020 Family
Meet the Gonzaba Family! Lizette Gonzaba is so excited to own a Habitat home. She is looking forward to the financial security and stability homeownership will provide. She has three children—Alexia (17), Angelina (5), and Christopher (2).
“I want to be able to provide a beautiful home for my children. I am a single mother working for my kids. I am super excited to be going through this whole home-buying process with Habitat. I want to show my kids what hard work and dedication will get them. I want them to have space where they can grow together, and a place we can call home. We are so happy for the Habitat program. Thank you, Habitat, for this opportunity.”
