Habitat for Humanity breaks ground on project near Orange Cove

Posted by BoNhia Lee on December 13, 2013 

Habitat for Humanity Fresno County broke ground on its first new home project in a rural community last week.

The nonprofit homebuilder turned the dirt on lots for three homes in the Monte Vista subdivision on Adams Avenue, north of Orange Cove.

Habitat received a $200,000 grant last year from Wells Fargo bank’s housing foundation for the project.

The houses will each have three bedrooms and two bathrooms. This is the first time Habitat has ventured out to a rural Fresno County community to build homes. In 2011, the agency renovated two houses in Parlier.
