Natural Awakenings Tucson

Innovative Efforts from Habitat for Humanity Tucson

Thanks to a donation of a manufactured home, community partnerships and innovative efforts from Habitat for Humanity Tucson, Sahuarita veteran Gabriel Barreda will receive a safe, new home for his family via the Preserve-A-Home critical home repair services.

Barreda helped evacuate U.S. soldiers from Vietnam in 1975 as a corporal in the Marines. At 60, he’s now a disabled veteran working a night shift at Walmart to provide for his wife, Elizabeth. Repairs would have cost more than the value of the home, so thanks to a partnership between the Long Realty Cares Foundation, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona and Habitat for Humanity Tucson, the Barredas have a new home.

Through the Neighborhood Partnership Program (NPP), Habitat Tucson assists families, fulfilling a mission of ensuring community residents live in safe, decent and affordable homes.
