MEET THE BARRINGER FAMILY!
They consist of a single, hard-working mother and four boys who will move out of transitional living into a home of their very own! We are excited to share how you can join us and be a part of their story without swinging a hammer!
For only $20, you can help build one square foot of this family’s home. Once we frame the house, you’ll be invited to sign a 2x4 that will be part of their future forever. Simply CLICK HERE!
We are building a replica of a historic house in Lake Elsinore. This home was build in 1915 and once housed Jean Hayman, a beloved school teacher and community member. This project is in partnership with the City of Lake Elsinore, the County of Riverside, EDA and local Historical Society.
An unique aspect about this project is we will be able to house TWO families. We have already helped the family that was renting the home relocate to a new, permanent home and better situation overall. Early this fall we hope to complete the project and house the Barringer family!
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS:
With the support of community partners, donors and volunteers, HFHIV constructs new or renovates existing homes alongside Habitat Partner Homebuyers.

Homebuyers must be able to demonstrate they can afford a mortgage loan and a small down payment.
