Building a Greater Los Angeles Blog

A Home Dedication is planned for the Diaz-Echavarria Family on Wednesday, 9/24 at 4:00 pm to celebrate homeownership! Why not apply for your own Habitat for Humanity home?

Tomorrow the Diaz-Echavarria Family will be handed the keys to their new home in Lynwood during a home dedication ceremony with city officials, Habitat for Humanity staff, volunteers, neighbors and well-wishers. Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles, in partnership with the City of Lynwood, helped the Diaz-Echavarria family achieve their American Dream on a refurbished home, which the family helped build as part of their 500 hours of “sweat equity.” The ceremony will begin at 4:00 pm and will include a short presentation, a key presentation and home blessing. Refreshments and tours will be available.

Los Angeles is ranked last in housing affordability in the United States and the Diaz-Echavarria family would never qualify for a traditional home loan. By partnering with Habitat for Humanity, families like the Diaz-Echavarrias are able to achieve homeownership through zero-interest loans and a willingness to help build their home and other Habitat homes. Their home was built in partnership with the City of Lynwood and with the generous support of Buildable Hours & City Yoga.

This is also the 7th Habitat for Humanity home to be completed on Louise Street in the City of Lynwood since 1994.
