Groundbreaking Ceremony on 10-23-17

140 South A Street in Tustin where our veteran homes will be built.

Corpus Christi is a member of the Catholic Coalition that is partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Orange County to build two veteran homes in the city of Tustin. Notes from the September Catholic Coalition Meeting:

Barring any last minute snags, groundbreaking will occur at the end of October.

Given the level of interest from volunteers, there will be an early opportunity to get onto the build site and do some work. There is a long concrete driveway which needs to be broken up and removed. Work on this portion of the project is expected to occur in November.

The big event for volunteers, donors, and everyone else to attend is the Wall Raising which typically takes place about six weeks after the groundbreaking but may be pushed to early January. This event marks the beginning of the period when volunteer opportunities will be available. The Coalition has raised 90% of the $150,000 fundraising goal.

Please continue to pray for the Garcias who have been selected to purchase one of the houses.
