Grand Opening Dedication Ceremony for A New Affordable Housing Project for Working Families.
GLENDALE, CA. (JUNE 16, 2012) San Gabriel Valley Habitat for Humanity hosted a Dedication Ceremony for a new, five (5) unit, affordable home ownership project for low-income families in the City of Glendale.
The Geneva Street construction project involves the development of five (5) new affordable homes at 624 Geneva Street for qualified low-income, first time homebuyers. SGV Habitat for Humanity is able to provide this development through volunteer labor, donated materials, and private/corporate donations. The SGV Habitat Family Selection Committee received 60 applications for the Geneva homes. Of the applications received, five (5) fortunate families were selected and are given the opportunity to become first-time homebuyers of the Geneva homes. The five (5) families chosen by the Family Selection Committee are based on their relative level of need for decent housing, their willingness to become partners in the SGV Habitat for Humanity program, and their ability to repay the loan. Each unit has 3 bedrooms, 1-½ bathrooms, living room and a laundry room with approximately 1,200 sq. ft. of living space. Representatives from San Gabriel Valley Habitat for Humanity and the Housing Authority of the City of Glendale made brief presentations about the development of the project.
