About SCV Habitat for Heroes
SCV Habitat for Heroes is a program of Habitat for Humanity San Fernando/Santa Clarita Valleys, sponsored by the Southern California Gas Company, in partnership with KHTS AM 1220. This program serves low-income and disabled veterans who either struggle to keep up or get around their existing home, due to disability or lack of funds, as well as low-income and disabled veterans in need of a brand new affordable home in Santa Clarita. SCV Habitat for Heroes has completed 3 home repairs/disability modifications since November 2011 and plans to complete three more by the end of 2012. They also plan to start a first-of-its-kind veteran “enriched” community of new homes in the coming months. Habitat is already accepting applications for the new community which will also provide veteran families with social services specifically tailored to suit the needs of veterans, especially those recently returning from the “wars on terror” as well as services for older vets of prior conflicts.
