On July 2nd, several Habitat board members, staff and committee members gathered at the Hanford ReStore to surprise Victor and Danielle with the announcement that they would be Habitat’s next homeowner partners. They have joined the more than 70 families who have become homowners through Habitat for Humanity of Tulare/Kings Counties. Later this month and they will begin to put in their 500 hours of sweat equity building their “forever” home in Hanford.
Like so many families, Victor and Danielle have been working hard to keep a decent home for their family, but have had to line in overcrowded conditions while spending more than 50% of their income on rent. Raising one child of their own and fostering two more has become very challenging.
After they complete their new home, Victor and Danielle, like all Habitat homeowners, will pay an affordable monthly mortgage(including taxes and insurance) that does not exceed 1/3 of their income. These payments then support future projects and help even more families in the community. In fact, the mortgage payments of the four current Habitat homeowers in Hanford have been designated to help meet the cost of construction of Danielle and Victor’s home.
