On June 4th, volunteers, board members and staff from Habitat for Humanity joined the Santana Family as they started their “home-ownership” journey. They put in sweat-equity hours building their home and will now make monthly, no-interest mortgage payments to Habitat until the mortgage has been paid off. These monthly payments contribute to a revolving loan fund that helps support new projects with hard-working, low-income families in our community. They have joined 62 other families who have become first time home buyers through Habitat’s home-ownership program in Tulare and Kings Counties.
Habitat believes that everyone deserves a decent and affordable place to live and that home-ownership helps to stabilize individuals, children, parents, and the entire community.
Thank you to Bob Croft from Spirit 88.9 for helping us dedicate the home.
Thank you to all those who contributed to this project!
