Jurupa Valley – On Thursday, October 19 at 10 am, there was a ground-breaking ceremony for Habitat for Humanity—Riverside. The event marked the beginning of a construction effort in the City of Jurupa Valley on a housing development project for CalVet REN.
The new veterans community will sit on five acres at the end of Amarillo Street in the community of Glen Avon. It will include 26 single-family homes. Veterans and their families will be able to choose between three- or four-bedroom floor plans. All floor plans can be made ADA compliant, as needed. The homes will be EnergySTAR rated and surround a shared community space.
Care was also taken to ensure the exteriors of the homes were designed to complement the surrounding neighborhoods.
The project is being built in partnership with Habitat for Humanity, the California Department of Veterans Affairs, the City of Jurupa Valley, and the Economic Development Agency of Riverside.
The new community will be solely for veterans and their families. The community will be safe and affordable, and provide supportive services and classes to help with the transition into homeownership and civilian life.
