Tour Habitat's Current Construction Project
Once a month Habitat for Humanity of Southern Santa Barbara County opens up the Canon Perdido Affordable Homes construction site from 5-6pm for tours. This event is open to the public and we hope you will join us. The tours will take place at 822 E. Canon Perdido Street (near Milpas).
Canon Perdido Affordable Homes Construction Update
We are halfway through construction on the Canon Perdido Affordable homes. We have completed framing two of the three buildings and will be painting and installing siding in the coming weeks. At 822 E. Canon Perdido Street Habitat for Humanity is building 12 new affordable townhomes for local, low-income families. These homes will provide safe, secure, and affordable housing for 43 people, including 20 children, who currently live in sub-standard housing. To learn more about this important project please click here.
Construction volunteers are needed! We have volunteer opportunities every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at the Canon Perdido build site. Sign up to volunteer online or contact our Volunteer Coordinator at Rose@sbhabitat.org.
We have raised 75% of the funds needed to build the homes. We intend to raise $900,000 over the next seven months to successfully complete this project. Will you help us?
Consider joining the Carpenter's Club and pledge regular financial support to help build a home for a low-income family. Your gift will have a substantial and immediate impact on a local family:
$25/month: buys a front door to welcome a family home.
$50/month: buys Insulation to keep a family warm.
$100/month: buys high-quality flooring and carpeting for a family.
$250/month: buys kitchen and bathroom cabinets for a family of 5.
$500/month: buys a roof over a family's head.
Do you have a group of friends, club, church group, or business looking for a rewarding way to volunteer together? We are currently scheduling group build days on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Contact Alexandra@sbhabitat.org for more information. We hope to see your group at the construction site in 2014!
