Habitat LA to Construct Three Affordable Homes in Just Two Weeks, Thanks to a Partnership with Industry-Leading Construction Companies

Lancaster, CA, Oct. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) is thrilled to announce the launch of its 2023 Home Builders Blitz, a two-week construction project aimed at building affordable homes in Lancaster, CA. This exciting project, set to commence on October 16, 2023, features an exciting partnership with three leading construction companies: Clark Construction, Turner Construction, and The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company.

“The 2023 Home Builders Blitz embodies the essence of community collaboration. This initiative is more than just building homes; it’s about fostering strong communities and promoting sustainable change. We are immensely grateful for the dedication and support from our partners, Clark Construction, Turner Construction, and The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, as we strive towards a world where everyone has a safe and affordable place to live,” said Erin Rank, President & CEO of Habitat LA.

The 2023 Home Builders Blitz is an integral part of Habitat’s expansion into the Antelope Valley.  Three homes will be built during this accelerated build, with an additional five affordable homes being built on this parcel. This development will be the launch point for a multi-year commitment to this community, where Habitat LA will develop more than 170 additional affordable homes over the next five years.

The 2023 Home Builders Blitz is a win-win for all.  The event will mobilize local partners, volunteers, and community members to work in partnership, providing families with the stability and independence they need for a brighter future. Each day of the event will see more than 100 skilled tradesmen working diligently from sunup to sundown. These teams will not only contribute their labor but also donate the essential building materials and supplies. This unique collaboration deepens ties to our community, other builders in their area, subcontractors, and incorporate additional corporate sponsors who share their values.

Get involved!  Don’t miss out on this transformative community event. We invite you to support our teams by donating as we build not just houses but hope and a sense of community. Together, we can lay the foundation for a better tomorrow.  For more information on how you can support the 2023 Home Builders Blitz, please visit Habitat LA's Website (https://www.habitatla.org) or contact Helen Dosta at hdosta@habitatla.org.
