“We’ve completed 1,985 Single Family homes which include, Mutual Self-help, contractor built and Rehab”, added Emilia Mojica, Director of Single Family Development.
Since its founding in 1982, CVHC has facilitated the construction of single family homes through its Mutual Assistance (Self-Help) Program allowing families to become both builders AND homeowners, many of whom have developed marketable construction skills. Also, CVHC has built and/or rehabilitated 36 multi-family communities with over 3000 units built to house thousands of residents including: low income families, veterans, farmworkers, and senior residents.
Aside from constructing homes, CVHS continues providing a broad range of resident services including after school Kids Clubs, English as a Second Language, computer technology, gardening skills, health and nutrition, STEM Robotics, Tennis Camp, financial literacy, Mariachi Music Instruction, cultural dance instruction, college scholarships, and day care services, to name a few. These programs help eliminate barriers to success and links residents to other community supportive services.
