Homes 4 Families will host a free “Lunch & Learn” housing information program for veterans at noon today at South Antelope Valley Emergency Services (SAVES), 1002 E. Ave. Q-9, in Palmdale.

Currently under construction is a 56-home CalVet REN (Residential Enriched Neighborhood) for low-income veteran families. The community, located on a 10 acre parcel near Ave. R and Division St., will feature single-story homes with a number of fully ADA accessible units, community garden and playground, and is being built using holistic sustainability approach to minimize chemical sensitivity and PTSD triggers.

“Come have a free lunch and learn how you or someone you know can become a homeowner in Palmdale,” said Patricia Morales, SAVES coordinator.

Homes 4 Families was founded in Los Angeles in 2008 and exists to meet the significant need for affordable housing and effective, no-cost services that equip and prepare veteran families for home ownership and movement up the housing ladder.

With the support of CalVet and generous corporate sponsors and individual donors, Homes 4 Families has helped over 365 low-income families achieve their dreams of safe, affordable home ownership. This includes 138 low-income veterans and military families. In the next few years, 86 additional homes will be added to this number.
