On Wednesday, June 16th Habitat Young Professionals, in partnership with MetroEDGE, hosted Sacramento leaders in housing legislation and neighborhood equity for “Behind the Blueprints” – a conversation about the state of Sacramento neighborhoods, historical factors which shaped them, and what we can all do to support equitable housing and resources for all in our community.
Do you know an elderly neighbor, veteran, or low-income family in need of home repairs? Habitat for Humanity could help.
Habitat for Humanity is accepting home repair applications now through June 2nd
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento is currently hosting an open application period for qualified, low-income homeowners in need of health, safety, and energy-efficient related home repairs. The nonprofit organization does between 40-50 home repairs annually for low-income homeowners (primarily seniors and veterans) in need of critical home repairs to age in place and address deferred maintenance issues.
Safe, affordable housing is needed more than ever, and COVID-19 has highlighted how much we rely on “home” being a safe place to work, build equity, stay healthy, learn and shelter from heat, storms, and pandemics.
Habitat builds forward to support working families and underserved individuals in our community who desperately need a safe, decent place to call “home”. U.S. Bank has been a long-time partner with Habitat in helping making home possible and this year; U.S. Bank is making a substantial commitment to support Habitat’s Big Day of Giving campaign so Habitat can continue to build forward for those in critical need of affordable housing in our region.
