On Monday, June 27th, Tony Miranda, the Executive Director for Habitat for Humanity Fresno County, gladly accepted a $1,000 donation from the Guarantee Good Will Network.
The first-time homeowners for the final house in Habitat’s eleven-unit Clara North Village will be moving into their home by the end of December. Habitat will be starting a new project of 9 homes on the northwest corner of Willow & Jensen in September. They are also very excited to have acquired two foreclosed and rehabilitated homes in the City of Parlier. And they are in the process of selecting two great families for those homes at this time.
Families typically invest a minimum of 500 hours of “sweat equity” before they can take ownership of their new home. Most families not only help build their own home but also aid in the construction of other Habitat homes. This important part of the Habitat program helps to ensure that families are not only committed to their home but also to the greater community as well.
Habitat for Humanity Fresno County seeks to end poverty housing in the county of Fresno by uniting individuals, families, and communities to build decent, affordable housing. Learn more about Habitat and find out how you can get involved by visiting their web site, http://www.habitatfresno.org/
