Help us empower low income veterans who would otherwise live in overcrowded or substandard homes, by giving them the opportunity to purchase safe and affordable housing.
Our veteran services empower veterans and their families by giving them the opportunity to purchase a safe and affordable home or make their current home safe by upgrading or renovating it. We also surround them with supportive services that ease their transition into civilian life.
Habitat for Humanity Riverside, in collaboration with the California Department of Veterans Affairs, is providing a critically-needed affordable homeownership program in Riverside County to address the veteran housing crisis and support members through their transition into civilian life. In our Veteran Enriched Neighborhoods, families will have the opportunity to connect with other servicemen and with local agencies that provide financial education, health information, homeownership and repair, and children's programs. Approved veterans will attend no-cost, educational workshops that range from financial literacy to health and wellness.
