Orange Cove family to get new home under Self-Help project

The Fresno BeeMarch 3, 2014 

Self-Help Enterprises, in partnership with the city of Orange Cove, is holding a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday at the site of the first city-funded home rehabilitation project.

Homeowners Eduardo and Leticia Zavala are the first beneficiaries of a partnership between Self-Help and the city to help rebuild old and often unsafe homes.

The house at 155 Center Street has become a hazardous residence with problems ranging from dry-rotted window frames, exposed wiring, bad plumbing, cracked exterior walls and moldy walls.

Through the program, Self-Help will oversee construction of a four-bedroom, two-bathroom house to accommodate the family of eight.
