Habitat for Humanity Calaveras Chosen as Nonprofit of the Year

San Andreas, CA, May 22, 2019 – Habitat for Humanity Calaveras (HfHC) is proud to announce it has been selected as a 2019 California Nonprofit of the Year by Assemblyperson Frank Bigelow of California’s 5th District.  Scott Behiel, Executive Director and Todd Peterson, Board President from HfHC will travel to Sacramento to join with one hundred other nonprofit leaders to be honored by their state senators and assemblymembers during a celebration luncheon as part of California Nonprofits Day on June 5.




The mission of Habitat for Humanity Calaveras is to provide affordable workforce housing to hard working families in Calaveras County who will be asked to contribute at least 400 hours of sweat equity and repay an affordable mortgage. After receiving a generous donation of land in Angels Camp HfHC intends to build approximately 100 brand new, code compliant homes and create a meaningful impact on the housing shortage in Calaveras County. The homes will range from one or two bedroom condos to two, three or four bedroom houses to accommodate needs of those ranging from senior citizens to young and growing families.

Our community has been very supportive and the staff and Board of Directors of Habitat for Humanity Calaveras have been working very hard to make a significant positive impact in the County and we are so grateful and humbled to be recognized by Assemblyperson Bigelow as a Nonprofit of the Year,” comments Scott Behiel.

Nonprofits are often hidden in plain sight,” explains Jan Masaoka, CEO of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits). “California Nonprofits Day is an opportunity for our elected officials to celebrate the good work they see nonprofits doing in their districts, and for everyone to appreciate the collective impact of nonprofits in our communities.”

Additional Background

California Nonprofits Day, now in its fourth year, was formally recognized by Assembly Concurrent Resolution 62, authored by the chair of the Assembly Select Committee on the Nonprofit Sector, Assemblywoman Monique Limón (Santa Barbara), who will speak at the celebration luncheon. Senator Holly Mitchell will keynote the luncheon. The day is organized by Assemblymember Limón and CalNonprofits.

According to “Causes Count,” a 2016 report commissioned by CalNonprofits, the nonprofit sector is the 4th largest industry in the state, employing nearly one million people. Each year, California nonprofits generate over $200 billion in revenue and bring in $40 billion in revenue from outside of California. The unpaid labor contributed by volunteers at nonprofits is equivalent to 450,000 full-time jobs every year.

Teach Your Kids the Meaning of Memorial Day. Memorial Day actually began as Decoration Day back in 1868, when the graves of Civil War soldiers were decorated with flags and flowers. For over 150 years, Memorial Day has been dedicated to paying respect to all the men and women who died during their service to the U.S. military. Visit and decorate a veterans grave and attend a parade.

    I am a veteran and I am offended that you hijack this item to express your opinion on something not remotely connected.

Bargains and a good cause

I furnished part of my home and rentals with items from the ReStore and all proved to be a good by, functional stuff at half the price.
I also helped build Habitat housing for two Calaveras families who now, thanks to their hard work as partners, have a good roof over the heads of their kids.
Looking for a great local charity to support? You found it.

      Ditto! Yep it does take a whole community. It would be nice to have housing like that for every family who is struggling in our county. I just hate to see kids who are forced to live out on the streets or in cars and it's not their fault either, Steven R Smith

    Hope you were not housing illegal aliens in those houses.

        Who knows? I certainly hope not. There are a lot of deserving decent families out there who need a home, SRS
