MEDIA RELEASE

 

San Diego Habitat for Humanity Receives Service Enterprise Certification

Becomes one of the first organizations in California to receive this distinction

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA – San Diego Habitat for Humanity (SDHFH) is honored to have been certified by CaliforniaVolunteers as a Service Enterprise, showing that SDHFH fundamentally leverages volunteers and their skills to successfully fulfill its social mission - bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope.

With this certification, San Diego Habitat for Humanity becomes one of the first organizations in California to be recognized as a Service Enterprise by CaliforniaVolunteers, the state service commission that manages programs and initiatives aimed at increasing the number of Californians engaged in service and volunteering.  Research conducted by the TCC Group, a national program and evaluation firm, found that organizations operating as Service Enterprises outperform peer organizations in all aspects of organizational effectiveness, and are more adaptable, sustainable, and capable of scaling their work.

An extensive assessment and training process led to this recognition.  By achieving this level of excellence and certification, San Diego Habitat for Humanity is now better equipped to leverage the time and talent of volunteers in building its organizational capacity.

For information regarding volunteer opportunities with SDHFH, please visit www.sdhfh.org.  For further information regarding the CaliforniaVolunteers Service Enterprise Initiative, please visit www.CaliforniaVolunteers.org.
