The California Department of Veteran Affairs and Habitat for Humanity of San Fernando/Santa Clarita Valleys presented 26 veterans and their families with keys to their new homes.
“Homeownership is a vital resource that can be leveraged along with wrap around services to move today’s veterans into middle class, creating tomorrow’s civic leaders,”
“These are hard working veterans and they do take on the responsibility of a mortgage and 500 hours of sweat equity in order to make the home possible,” said Donna Deutchman, Chief Executive Officer of Habitat for Humanity of San Fernando/Santa Clarita Valleys. “In doing that sweat equity, that includes financial literacy training, trauma programming, working on their homes themselves, and a whole host of activities that are required of them.”
Veteran families in phase one have completed over 10,010 hours of sweat equity, according to Habitat for Humanity officials.
Now this represents the way forward. We thank everyone involved in this effort for their hard work and vision of positive solutions!
