Healthy Homes and Healthy Communities


Self-Help Enterprises can make the dream of becoming a homeowner a reality for low-income families in the San Joaquin Valley. Through our program, eight to twelve families are grouped together and agree to help each other build their houses with skilled onsite supervision and guidance of Self-Help Enterprises construction staff. Edgar and Crystal Cabrera share their experience on building their own home alongside their neighbors.

"It's very special because our hands are going in the house.

Having your neighbors help you, that builds relationships. You get to know your neighbors."
