Habitat for Humanity of the Rio Grande Valley and McAllen South Rotary Club celebrated the groundbreaking ceremony of their next home in McAllen. This event is a result of a generous donation of $25,000 by the McAllen South Rotary Club to Habitat for Humanity of the Rio Grande Valley in support of affordable housing to build strength, stability, and self-reliance for the Velasquez Family.

This will be the fourth Habitat home sponsored by the McAllen South Rotary Club. Construction begins in the Fall with the “Raising the Walls” event, a signature Habitat for Humanity experience as it represents the first major step in the construction of the new home for the Velasquez Family. 

This event took place on Friday, October 4, 2019 at the lot located at 2057 Lindberg Circle E, McAllen.

Since 1988, Habitat for Humanity of the Rio Grande Valley has been dedicated to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.

Working in partnership with God, Habitat changes lives by enabling people who live in substandard housing to become responsible homeowners. With two locations in the Rio Grande Valley, the McAllen ReStore is location at 412 W. Ash Ave., off Business 83 and the Harlingen ReStore is located at 502 N 1st Street.

Habitat is responsible for the construction of over 160 homes throughout the Valley. Habitat offers a “hand up” and not a “hand out” to low income families from the four-county region. Family partners must be hard working, low income residents that may not be able to qualify for a traditional mortgage.
