Our Playhouse Program is a unique building opportunity for teams to work together to construct and decorate children’s playhouses, which are then donated to military and veteran families in Ventura County.
Who builds the playhouses?
Teams of any kind can build Playhouses: corporations, faith congregations, community organizations and groups of friends.
How does it work?
Each playhouse takes 3-4 hours to build and paint with the help of about 8 volunteers. Each playhouse is pre-cut and brought to your parking lot or event site so that your employees can fabricate and decorate! Several playhouses can be built at once to engage more employees. Sponsorship of playhouses start at $2,000; revenue which is used to fund the construction of real Habitat homes!
Who receives the playhouses?
Habitat partners with local non-profits to select the families that receive completed playhouses. Many playhouses go to active military and veteran families.

- - Faith Relations Groups - Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County has many ways for groups of all denominations and faith traditions to partner with us to put faith into action.
- - Youth and School Groups - Youth volunteer groups are among our most enthusiastic and energetic. We invite youth 16 years of age and older to volunteer on the construction site and those 14 and older to participate in a group workday at the ReStore. We ask that youth groups have a one to five, adult to youth volunteer ratio.
- - Community Groups - Community groups provide significant support for Habitat Ventura County and are encouraged to come out and volunteer with us. We welcome groups from all walks of life to join us in providing decent and affordable housing for those in need. You will find this a rewarding experience and a great opportunity to bond with colleagues while doing something meaningful in the community.
