“Community support, along with affordable homeownership and wraparound services, is an essential piece to the long-term success of our military families.” -Donna Deutchman, President and CEO
ANTELOPE VALLEY, Calif. (PRWEB) March 26, 2019
Homes 4 Families (H4F), a nonprofit that empowers low-income veterans and their families to enter the middle class by providing them with affordable housing and holistic services that build resiliency, self-sufficiency and economic growth, held Welcome to the “Neighborhood” today in the Antelope Valley.
This event introduced community leaders of the Antelope Valley to H4F’s newest project, a 56-home Veteran Enriched Neighborhood® being built in the City of Palmdale. Attendees enjoyed a lunch while they learned about the project and programs being offered to low-income veterans, in partnership with The California Department of Veterans Affairs and the City of Palmdale.
This project, for which they are currently accepting applications from qualified veterans, will soon be fully graded. Low-income U.S. veterans can qualify for the two- and three-bedroom homes with low- or no-interest loans. Along with this affordable home ownership opportunity, veterans and military families will be provided with access to wraparound services proven to build self-sufficiency and resiliency.
The event’s table committee included Vets 4 Veterans, Lily Knight, Northrop Grumman, Edwards Air Force Base, H4F Board Chair Hunt Braly, H4F Board Member and Progression Drywall CFO Rose Rockey, Lou and Joyce Gonzalez of AV Chevy, and Johnny Zamrzla of Western Pacific Roofing Company. Palmdale City Mayor Steve Hofbauer and Representatives of Congresswoman Katie Hill, Senator Scott Wilk, Assemblyman Tom Lackey, LA County Supervisor Kathryn Barger, and the City of Palmdale were in attendance.
Attendees included groups from local Chambers of Commerce, the Assistance League of Antelope Valley, Greater Antelope Valley Association of Realtors®, the Antelope Valley Republican Women Federated, and local business owners.
“We are thrilled to be building in the Antelope Valley. The community being so supportive of veterans is why we chose to build our third Veteran Enriched Neighborhood® in the City of Palmdale,” said Donna Deutchman, President and CEO of Homes 4 Families. “Community support, along with affordable homeownership and wraparound services, is an essential piece to the long-term success of our military families.”
