We have seen some amazing things happen when a community comes together to build homes for hard-working families. Over the past several years, funds raised have provided homeownership opportunities for three families and we are now seeing those families, those children, thrive. Habitat’s Porterville homeowner partners, Vanessa, Rosa, Dennis and Francine, have joined the thousands of families across the United States and more than 60 families in Tulare and Kings Counties to become first time homeowners through Habitat for Humanity’s home-ownership program. They have contributed hundreds of sweat equity hours to building and remodeling their homes and now their eight children have safe, decent and affordable homes that they can call their own.
Habitat homes are built with funds donated by the local community and the generous donation of time from more than 300 volunteers every year. Habitat homeowner partners also make monthly mortgage payments back to Habitat to support the next affordable home project.
In partnership with the City of Porterville, Habitat has identified a piece of property near downtown that we will build on in partnership with Habitat’s next homeowner partner. There are many hard-working families that qualify for Habitat’s home-ownership program and we need your help to serve them. In partnership with the “Building Hope in Porterville” committee, we need to raise $50,000 to start construction on our next home building project.
Every dollar invested with Habitat for Humanity will return 10 fold as each new Habitat homeowner partner makes monthly mortgage payments back to Habitat.
