Veterans

In partnership with California Department of Veteran Affairs, Habitat for Humanity Riverside will build 26 new, EnergySTAR rated efficient single-family residences dedicated to veterans and families of the fallen. On their journey to home ownership, veterans and their families will attend no-cost, educational workshops that range from financial literacy to health and wellness.


Veterans and their families will live in one community built in the City of Jurupa Valley. There are 2 floor plans available, a  3 bedroom/2 bathroom and a 4 bedroom/2 bathroom. All floor plans can be adjusted to be ADA compliant for disabled veterans and their family members. 

The exteriors of the homes have been designed to complement the surrounding neighborhoods. Habitat for Humanity Riverside is accepting pre-qualification applications from veterans and families who are interested in purchasing an affordable, new home.

Thank You for Supporting!
