Indio Partners with Habitat for Humanity to Build Homes for Veterans

On June 28, 2018, Habitat for Humanity of the Coachella Valley, the City of Indio, and the Home Depot Foundation held a home dedication ceremony welcoming the Hitchcock Family to their new home, which is one of two homes recently-constructed through a partnership between Habitat for Humanity, the City and the Home Depot Foundation.  The Hitchcock home is located on Mountain View Avenue and the other on Orange Grove Avenue in the neighborhood surrounding Yucca Park near Monroe Street and Avenue 44. The home construction and ceremony for this veteran family were part of a larger initiative that began earlier in March where over 400 volunteers completed community and home improvements in that area. Mayor Pro Tem Troy Strange spoke at the dedication ceremony to welcome the Hitchcock Family to Indio and to congratulate all the community partners and volunteers involved in this revitalization effort. Indio Mayor Michael H. Wilson said, “We are grateful for our partnership with Habitat for Humanity, Home Depot Foundation and the Coachella Valley Housing Coalition for helping those in need, especially our veterans and their families who have served and sacrificed for our country.”
