Despite the constant rainfall, our construction crew and incredible volunteers have made quite the headway, no matter the weather! Check out what we’ve been working on.

San Jose (Bridge Housing Communities – 1590 Las Plumas, San Jose):

Production is underway on a new partnership between Habitat EBSV, the City of San Jose, and HomeFirst Services. We’re building a pathway out of homelessness and toward permanent housing by constructing Emergency Sleeping Cabin.

The tools are gathered, and the building has commenced! We’ve started framing, assembled walls, and built interior shelving. Come join this exciting and important work!
