Habitat for Humanity homes for veterans in southern California

Are you a veteran making $45,000 a year or more and dream of owning your own home? Habitat for Humanity San Fernando/Santa Clarita Valleys, the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate for North Los Angeles County, is building homes for veterans in collaboration with the California Department of Veteran Affairs.

The organization will build a 12-home community Sylmar and an 87-home community in Santa Clarita. These affordable homes will be available to low to very-low income veterans, their dependents and families of the fallen.

We encourage any veterans interested in this great opportunity to own a home, to contact Habitat for Humanity as soon as possible, to apply. These homes are currently under construction in Sylmar and plans for construction in Santa Clarita, will commence in a few months,” said Peter J. Gravett, CalVet Secretary. “Veterans should get their applications in as soon as possible, so they can hopefully move into their new home within 18 to 24 months.”

These three and four bedroom home communities will be referred to as “enriched” neighborhood models. Families will pay a 30-40 year mortgage on the home that will cost no more than 35 percent of their monthly income for their mortgage payments, Homeowners Association dues, taxes, insurance and water.

Habitat for Humanity SF/SCV will also be providing onsite social, or “enrichment,” services for these veterans. These services are provided within the neighborhoods under construction, before and after move-in, to assist veterans and their families learn finance skills, acquire Post Traumatic Syndrome Disorder counseling, health and dental screenings, peer-to-peer counseling, homework help for the children and more.

Habitat for Humanity San Fernando/Santa Clarita Valleys is currently accepting applications. If you are a veteran earning combined family income of $45,000 – $83,650 a year, call 818-884-8808 or go to www.HumanityCA.org to apply.
