Volunteer Opp 1Oakland - Renovation

There’s no shortage of work to do in order to get this home on Manila Avenue converted to a four-bedroom and ship-shape for a future Habitat homeowner! This month, we’re working on some first floor beams and framing, and preparing to get started on the stairs.

Walnut Creek - New Home Development, Esperanza Place

We’re getting the main storm drain line installed on site, while volunteers help us out on forming retaining walls and some rebar and bracing along the Iron Horse Trail side of the development. And we’re looking forward to the end of the month, when we’ll start foundations!

San Jose - Renovation

As we await permits to begin work, we’re prepping for a major (fun!) job ahead to convert this building into four two-bedroom homes! We’re aiming to begin site work and remediation in May, with volunteerism following in the summer. Stay tuned!
