Habit for Humanity Launches Home is the Key National Campaign

Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley raises funds and awareness in April to increase affordable homeownership in the Temecula Valley region as part of national campaign.

For many people across the U.S., access to an affordable home remains out of reach, creating barriers to affording basic necessities such as food, education or medical care. In California, 25% of residents now live in either substandard housing or are overcrowded or cost- burdened. Southwest Riverside County families are affected as well, and the shortage of units also contributes to the homelessness problem. To address this critical need locally and across the country, Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley is joining Home is the Key, a national campaign by Habitat for Humanity International that spotlights the need for affordable housing and aims to raise funds to drive lasting change in the United States.

Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley is raising donations at its Temecula and Lake Elsinore ReStore store locations. Customers can make a donation from $1 to $20 at each store and proceeds will go towards the Home is the Key campaign.

“An affordable home provides the basic foundation necessary so families and individuals can thrive,” said Tammy Marine, Executive Director, Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley. “We invite our community to show their support by donating, volunteering or advocating with us in April and beyond so we can collectively solve this problem that affects us all.”

Since 1991, Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley has provided 38 homeownership opportunities locally and 52 internationally while completing repairs on over 500 homes in the Inland Valley region. In the month of April, the organization begins construction on a home in Lake Elsinore and prepares to provide repairs for close to 50 homes for the Menifee Better Together program.
