• Money to sponsor “Veteran Home Build Project”
• “Our employees are proud to work with Habitat for Humanity volunteers”
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento says Health Net Federal Services LLC is partnering with it to help build a home for a local military veteran and family.
The partnership includes a $150,000 donation to cover the costs of construction on the project, as well as hundreds of volunteers from Health Net who will aid in the construction of the home.
The sponsorship is the largest financial home sponsorship donation from a single donor in Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento’s 31-year history.
“Through this partnership, our employees are proud to work with Habitat for Humanity volunteers to build the first veteran home in our community,” says Billy Maynard, president and CEO of Health Net Federal Services.
The Veteran Home Build project will be newly constructed, built to the highest level of green building standards, and available for purchase through a 30-year, zero-percent or zero-percent equivalent mortgage for a Veteran partner family that qualifies under the guidelines of the Habitat home ownership program.
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento has completed 139 homes in Sacramento and Yolo counties over the past 31 years and also has a program devoted to repairs for low-income existing homeowners and Veterans who are struggling to stay in their homes.
