Santa Clarita – On Saturday, the California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) and Habitat for Humanity, San Fernando / Santa Clarita Valleys (SF/SCV) hold a public ceremony where 26 Veterans and their families will be presented with keys to their new homes.
“Saturday’s wonderful key presentation ceremony is for our 26 Veterans and their families who worked very hard to help build their new homes. Each Veteran is taking on a new responsibility with the purchase of a new home in this beautiful new community providing a modern place to live as well as services unique to our Veterans’ needs,” said Debbie Endsley, CalVet’s Acting Secretary.
“Homeownership is a vital resource that can be leveraged along with wraparound services to move today’s Veterans into the middle class, creating tomorrow’s civic leaders,” said Donna E. Deutchman, Chief Executive Officer, Habitat for Humanity, SF/SDV.
The CalVet REN (Residential Enriched Neighborhood) Program offers permanent, affordable home ownership with manageable loan payments and family enrichment services to California Veterans and their families. CalVet, in partnership with Homes for Families, continues working with Habitat for Humanity, SF/SCV on three Veterans housing projects.
The CalVet REN projects include 12 homes in Sylmar, 50 homes in Palmdale, and 78 homes in Santa Clarita. The key ceremony event begins at 10:00 a.m. at 21550 Center Pointe Parkway, Santa Clarita, CA 91350. The event is free and open to the public.
