On Saturday, November 17, Homes 4 Families and CalVet will hold a public ceremony topresent 24 veterans and their families with keys to their new homes.
“I believe in the American Dream, and for veterans, a big part of that dream is home ownership,” said CalVet Secretary Dr. Vito Imbasciani. “Through this project, CalVet and Homes 4 Families have provided the opportunity of home ownership to more than 60 veterans.”
The CalVet REN (Residential Enriched Neighborhood) Program provides permanent, affordable home ownership with manageable loan payments and family enrichment services to low income veterans and their families.
“Our veterans understand the meaning of leadership, dedication, and service, plus they bring these important skills to our community. They are truly an asset,” said Donna E. Deutchman, President and Chief Executive Officer, of Homes 4 Families.
This final phase of 24 homes completes the 78 home CalVet REN project in Santa Clarita. CalVet previously completed 12 homes in Sylmar. The next project near this community will be 56 homes for veterans in Palmdale.
The key ceremony begins at 10 a.m. at 21550 Center Pointe Parkway, Santa Clarita, CA 91350. The event is free and open to the public. There will be a veteran art show at the development. The theme of the artwork highlights the emotions that our military families experience before, during, and after their service.
