San Diego Habitat for Humanity’s Home Builder’s Blitz
From June 4 through June 8 2018, San Diego Habitat for Humanity, in partnership with Clark Construction and McCarty Building Companies, will build two homes – from the ground up – in five days in El Cajon. Ed Lenderman was live in El Cajon at the event kickoff Monday morning.
The Home Builders Blitz represents a partnership between Habitat for Humanity and the building industry to build homes across the nation. Builders leverage their relationships with local subcontractors to build the homes a virtually no cost to Habitat. This is San Diego Habitat for Humanity’s 8th Home Builders Blitz; 25 homes have been built locally using the Blitz model.
The homes will be sold to people who qualify according to Habitat for Humanity’s selection criteria – a demonstrated need for improved housing, the ability to repay an affordable mortgage, and willingness to partner with Habitat by completing 250-500 sweat-equity hours before moving into the homes.
