140 South A Street in Tustin where our veteran homes will be built.

About a year ago, Corpus Christi and several other Catholic communities united under the mission of Habitat for Humanity of Orange County to provide a safe and decent place for limited income Orange County families to live. A collective organization of over twenty parishes, Catholic businesses, and individuals in the Diocese of Orange are partnering with Habitat OC to build a veteran, two home development in the city of Tustin. This project will break ground in late July and will draw on the Catholic community for a majority of volunteer responsibilities until Spring 2018.

Since taking responsibility for this project, the Catholic Coalition has raised $100,000 of the $150,000 required to complete our financial commitment to the home builds. All are encouraged to volunteer and support this ongoing project.

For instructions on how to register (see below), please click here: VolunteerHub Registration Instructions. Then to register, please visit and establish a profile with Habitat OC.

When volunteer opportunities open for sign-ups in the coming weeks, our parish will receive a private build code to unlock available build dates with other parishes across Orange County. The code will be published in the next Catholic Coalition article.
