- Habitat for Humanity, San Fernando/Santa Clarita Valleys’ mission is to build affordable homes for low-income civilian and veteran families, and provide services that empower them to build brighter futures as homeowners. We are a locally run, independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving North Los Angeles City and County, building houses and futures for low-income families. We partner with our sister agency, Homes for Families® to specialize in building Enriched Neighborhood® communities–which hold the promise to move low income families up into the middle class. Founded in 1990, we are currently building over 150 homes for low-income veterans in collaboration with the California Department of Veterans Affairs. To date, we have built 317 homes placing us in the top 5% of Habitat affiliates nationwide.
- Homes for Families is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving low-income families through the development and replication of the Enriched Neighborhood® model. This model offers a powerful out-come based program of wrap-around services and education that empowers under-served families to build equity, self-sufficiency skills, and advocacy capacity to move themselves up in socio-economic status. For Veterans and their military families, these wrap-around services are enhanced with much-needed trauma-informed programs and services to address PTSD, Military Sexual Trauma, Traumatic Brain Injury and other issues prevalent in military families. Homes for Families partners with non-profits, government entities, and corporations to bring the outcome-proven Enriched Neighborhood® model to communities.

The North State Building Industry Association just held the “Field of Dreams” Fall Golf Tournament at the Winchester Country Club in Meadow Vista, CA. The North State BIA is a leading advocate for the home building industry in the greater Sacramento region. They have nearly 500 members, including 35,000 industry jobs. The North State BIA is committed to preserving and furthering the economic interests of its members, while also working to enhance the industry’s standing as a significant contributor to the regional economy.
The day began with a warm up on the driving range and a putting contest. Next, the participants gathered over to the golf carts and there was a shotgun scramble start. The day continued with tee box contests and more. Following the day’s golf play, participants, volunteers and non-golfers joined back at the clubhouse for an awards dinner. DuctTesters was proud to be the Awards Dinner Sponsor. The “Field of Dream” Fall Golf Tournament Event was a success! We would like to thank the North State Building Industry Association for their hard work and to all that participated or volunteered in the Tournament.
