Monrovia-Based Habitat for Humanity Plans to Help 100 Families Over Three Years

Monrovia-based San Gabriel Valley Habitat for Humanity has committed to transforming the lives of 100 families in the San Gabriel Valley, the Philippines, and Haiti over three years through its $28 million Expanding the American Dream campaign. During the first year of the campaign it was able to serve 27 families.

Former Monrovia School Board member Bryan Wong, now Executive Director at SGV Habitat for Humanity, said, "Our goal is to dramatically increase the number of affordable home ownership opportunities in the San Gabriel Valley. The need for affordable housing in the area is overwhelming. We aim to make the world a place where all can afford to live-both first-time home buyers and long-time residents."

Habitat for Humanity's goal is to help more families achieve financial security and stability. It will provide critical home repair and home ownership to 100 families across the San Gabriel Valley and abroad. This is in addition to the nearly 290 families already served by since 1990.

Currently SGV Habitat for Humanity has two home repair projects planned for January and is working toward breaking ground on its next new home construction project in Pasadena.
