Thursday, October 11, the Granada Hills Wells Fargo branch came out to assist a low-income, vision-impaired veteran, David and his wife, Pat who live in Burbank. For this Company TEAMbuild, Wells Fargo helped clean up their overgrown yard, painted and did minor demolition. This was a great help to this senior couple who struggles to keep up with their home due to David’s disability and Pat’s teachings at local schools.
David and Pat are so thankful for the assistance Wells Fargo has given them in helping them better manage their home.
About Habitat for Heroes
Habitat for Heroes is a program of Habitat for Humanity San Fernando/Santa Clarita Valleys. 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. Habitat for Heroes has completed 7 home repairs/disability modifications since November 2011 and plans to complete three more by the end of 2012 and ten more in 2013. They also plan to start two veteran “enriched” communities 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.
