Habitat LA Breaks Ground with Incoming Families on New Homes in Washington Neighborhood

Release Date: 2017-03-24

Four families will be moving into affordable, safe housing in Long Beach thanks to a development project sponsored by Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Los Angeles Area (Habitat LA).

Friday afternoon, Habitat LA officials gathered with Mayor Robert Garcia and other city officials, religious leaders, corporate sponsors and the Ortiz, Chavez, Hayes and Nall families to break ground on the construction site in the 1900 block of Henderson Avenue in the Washington neighborhood.

“Anytime we can work to create homeownership… is a great day for the city,” Garcia said to a crowd of about 30.
