According to Habitat for Humanity of Greater LA, "Los Angeles ranks as one of the least affordable housing areas in the U.S. and yet Habitat for Humanity is one of the few – if not only – affordable homeownership programs that serves families and individuals earning 30-80% of the median family income. Cost burden and overcrowding are the most serious problems experienced by very low-income area Southern California residents. Habitat for Humanity of Greater LA is dedicated to making homeownership possible for low-income, hardworking families and individuals".
