New Affordable Housing Community in Walnut Creek Under Construction

Contra Costa County, California (cron) — Construction of the new affordable housing community at Walnut Creek continues on schedule. Habitat for Humanity East Bay Silicon Valley builds townhomes for low- and middle-income families.

On Saturday, Kaiser Permanente volunteers helped from laying the foundation to building the roof.

Chris Boyd of Kaiser Permanente said, “We are determined to make a difference by taking off our suits and ties and wearing clothes like this.

Kaiser Permanente volunteers participated in Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley on Saturday to help build Esperanza Place. It’s the future home for his 42 families who are struggling to find affordable housing in Walnut Creek.

“We also have four employees, teammates, colleagues and friends in the application process,” said Boyd. “So we’re not just building homes for the greater good. We’re actually taking care of our team.”

Chris Boyd, senior vice president and area manager of Kaiser Permanente’s Diablo Service Area, said Health Systems is the development sponsor and has committed $400,000 to the $20 million+ project over the next four years.

“We are grateful to Habitat. We cannot send our three children to college without Habitat Home,” said Rose Baty, owner of Habitat Home.

In 2014, Bhatti received the keys to Habitat in her San Pablo home on Thanksgiving Day. She understands how important it is to lend a hand to projects like this.

“Someone did this for me and I am always open and willing to do this for someone else,” Bhatti said.

The project broke ground last September, and in June the nonprofit held one of its famous blitzkrieg builds to escalate development. New Affordable Housing Community in Walnut Creek Under Construction
