The Community “Raises Walls” in Porterville

Porterville Wall Raising 2019


Almost 50 members of the local Porterville Community, joined Habitat for Humanity staff and new homeowner partner, to raise the first wall on Habitat’s newest project in Porterville. The Porterville Committee has been raising funds for this project for almost a year. Because of an amazing partnership with the City of Porterville, the donated property will soon be home to our newest homeowner and her four children. Staff from Bank of America, Eagle Mountain Casino, Dennis Townsend Architecture Group, and Harmony Magnet Academy were also on hand to help raise the first wall.  Ivan Lione, an architecture student from Harmony Magnet Academy, worked with Dennis Townsend Architecture Group, to design the floor plan for the new Habitat build. The City and Habitat hope that the project will be complete by the end of June 2019.
