The Power Of Giving
As a community benefit organization, we frequently use statistical data to demonstrate our value and to explain how an investment in our work impacts the lives of those we serve. The facts and figures, however, are only part of the story. The most meaningful aspect of our story is found within each family we serve. They live the reality that data can only begin to represent.
One family that exemplifies this truth so clearly is the Khampreseuths who were selected as a partner family in 1999. Their journey reveals how an investment in our organization provides both an initial “hand up” out of inadequate housing as well as long-lasting generational change. To read the entire story of the Khampreseuths family, please click here.

386 Park Avenue – Restoration in the Heart of Our City
Working to strengthen and to preserve our historic and long forgotten inner city neighborhoods has been an important part of our mission for a number of years. Our partnership with the City of Fresno and its Housing and Community Development Division has played an important role in helping both organizations to reach their goals of neighborhood revitalization.
That’s why we are very excited to share with you that we have joined forces with the City of Fresno once again on the restoration of the home located at 386 Park Avenue in the historic Fulton/Lowell area. This California bungalow was built in 1930 in this historic district in downtown Fresno. The home, which has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, is undergoing extensive renovation before the new Habitat partner family can purchase and occupy it. Habitat and its team of volunteers are already hard at work and renovations are expected to be completed before April 30, 2015.
This has been an amazing year for Habitat Fresno and we wanted to give thanks to those that have helped us move our mission forward over the last year. With the generous support of Premier Valley Bank we held our annual holiday gathering on December 3 to express our gratitude to our many donors and volunteers. The reception was held in the elegant surroundings of the Sebastian Corporate Office which was all decked out for the holidays. The elegant decorations and setting provided a festive kick-off for the season.
Guests were welcomed by Board Chair Bob Abrams and our Director Tony Miranda. More than 100 people sampled delicious hors d’oeuvres and listened to live music. It was a perfect setting for our guests to mingle among friends and acquaintances and an opportunity for Habitat to acknowledge and appreciate everyone’s tremendous efforts over the past year.
