Back in November of 2018, we presented Monique Sotelo with a $500 check to assist her and her family with their first home purchase. Monique applied for funds through our home buyers grant program and was approved by our board of directors as a deserving candidate. As a result, she was able to move into a new place with her family. Increasing the percentage of Veteran homeowners is our passion and mission.
We Are Here To Serve
Approximately 1,092,066 (or 8.5 percent) of California homes are occupied by Veterans. This is according to data collected by the Housing Assist Council. 70.5% is the homeownership rate of all California Veterans. However, our mission is to serve the 30% of Veterans who do not have a place to call home.
Approximately 383,362 California Veterans live in homes with one or more major problems of quality, crowding, or cost. In addition, data suggests that roughly 34 percent of California Veterans pay too much for their housing. In conclusion, we want to help lower these numbers one Veteran at a time.
