Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio has kicked off construction on its newest community in District 5, Cornerstone Village.
Located south of Highway 90, near General Hudnell, Cornerstone Village is a 27-lot community rising to eliminate blight and create much needed sustainable homes for low-income families in San Antonio.
Directly behind SAISD’s Kelly Elementary School, the transformation of empty lots is visibly underway, as volunteers and sponsors work side-by-side with Habitat homeowners to tackle a variety of hands-on duties, including framing, roofing, tiling and painting.
There will be a celebratory House Dedication Ceremony for the first 12 homes in this new community on April 5, while the completion of the Cornerstone Village project is scheduled for early August.
Distinguished as the first U.S. partner affiliate in the United States, our organization remains among the top five largest producers of new Habitat homes in the country. We remain grassroots by nature and are trusted to be great stewards of donor dollars. Due to the success of our Home Centers (building materials thrift stores), 100% of every donor dollar goes directly to house building!
This community in the making is possible thanks largely to uniting generous donations of time and funds from individuals, congregations, civic groups and corporations. With monthly mortgage payments averaging just $475 on a 0% interest, 20-year loan, Cornerstone Village will provide the long-term stability first-time homeowners can afford and the security necessary to plan their futures.
