Building for the Brave at Lakeshore Drive - Lakeside

San Diego Habitat for Humanity is honored to present the first project of its Building for the Brave program in Lakeside, CA.  This undertaking will allow us to serve those who have served us by providing four townhomes for affordable homeownership by disabled veterans and their families.  The homes will be outfitted with state of the art finishings adapted to the special needs of the veteran.

Timeline: SDHFH broke ground in March 2013, and all four homes were completed in Summer, 2014.
