With rainy days behind us, we’re looking forward to a summer full of sunshine and volunteers on site, because without you, we can’t do any of this amazing work:

34516524606_f877e4f736_z.jpgMartinez, Muir Ridge (20 New Homes):Dedications are what it’s all about! On May 20, we dedicated six more homes to six new homeowners at Muir Ridge. Thanks to the work of thousands of volunteers, the generosity of our donors and community partners, and the dedication of our future homeowners, these homes are complete and ready for move-in day. Work on the last phase, four additional homes, has begun! Volunteers are prepping the lots for a foundation pour in June!

Oakland (1855 70th Avenue, 1 Home Renovation):  This single family home in Oakland is getting new baseboards and prepped for paving! Volunteers are welcome Wednesday-Saturday. Spots are limited as this renovation project is near completion so sign up today.

Home Repair: Volunteers are repairing homes to improve safety and create healthy living environments for homeowners. They are installing grab bars and a walk-in shower for Ms. Juaraz, porch steps for Ms. Romero, and much more for families in San Jose and Hayward! Our Home Repair Team has also been on the ground working hard in San Jose to assist with flood relief. Read our most recent report on our work in the flood zone.
