Feb. 6, 8: Apply to own Habitat home


Families interested in applying to live in a three-bedroom Menlo Park home renovated by Habitat for Humanity can attend an information session Saturday, Feb. 6, or Monday, Feb. 8.

The project to renovate the home is part of a program to buy foreclosed homes in Menlo Park's Belle Haven neighborhood. The city of Menlo Park contributes to the program through its below-market-rate housing fund.

Both sessions will be held in the Menlo Park Senior Center, at the end of Terminal Ave. in Belle Haven. The session Saturday, Feb. 6, will run from 10 a.m. to noon. The session Monday, Feb. 8, will run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Interested families must attend one of the sessions in order to receive an application.

Applicants must either live or work in Menlo Park. Eligible families must have an income of between 40 and 60 percent of the area median income. For a family of four, that would range from $45,250 to $67,860, according to Habitat spokeswoman Jennifer Doettling.

For more information, call (415) 625-1010.
