Habitat is Awarded Perfect Score from Charity Navigator

Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County (HFHVC) has received a perfect 100 point score from Charity Navigator this year. Less than one percent of the thousands of charities rated by Charity Navigator have earned perfect scores.

Charity Navigator is America’s largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities. HFHVC has earned its fifth consecutive 4-star rating. This is the highest possible rating and indicates that HFHVC adheres to sector best practices and executes its mission in a financially efficient way. Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that HFHVC exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in its area of work. Only 8% of the charities evaluated by Charity Navigator have received at least 5 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Habitat outperforms most other charities in America. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.

“We are extremely proud to receive Charity Navigator’s top rating for the 5th consecutive year. This year we achieved a perfect score which demonstrates our commitment to transparency, trustworthiness and productivity as an organization. As donors and organizations give to Habitat Ventura County we want them to know that their funds are being used wisely to build and repair homes for families in need in our communities.” Steve Dwyer, Executive Director

HFHVC is currently building new homes in the La Colonia neighborhood of Oxnard and repairing homes for low-income homeowners, veterans and the elderly across Ventura County. Six Habitat families are building their own homes alongside volunteers and will soon pay an affordable mortgage. With Habitat’s help, these homeowners achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.
