Habitat for Humanity in Imperial Beach
Habitat for Humanity of San Diego is actively looking for qualified families for four homes to be built in Imperial Beach this year.
Qualified families will purchase a home, help build it, and then pay closing costs and a long term 0% interest mortgage.
The four homes will be built in the 1100 block of Florida Street according to Joe Carton, Senior Superintendent for San Diego Habitat for Humanity.
“They will be single-family two story homes consisting of approximately 1,300 square feet with a 2 car garage. One home is a prefab built as part of a community event, called ‘Habitat Off Broadway!’ held last Fall in Horton Plaza downtown San Diego. The home was broken down and put into storage and will be delivered to the site.
"We should get permits in early April and have the homes completed before the end of the year. It would be great if a local family qualified but we have pretty strict guidelines for our partner families who put a lot of sweat equity into the project.”
Neighbors according to Carton have given a positive response to the project. “Make a little noise on a Saturday morning and you get to meet the neighbors” he joked.
