Assemblymember Mike Gipson Kicks Off Juneteenth with a Homeownership Fair for the Community

Learn About Homebuying Resources at Magic Johnson Park

Assemblymember Mike Gipson, Senator Steve Bradford and Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) will host H.E.R.E., a Homeownership Education Resource Event in South Los Angeles, with support from Ring. This free event is centered on making the home buying process easier for low-income residents in need of safe, secure and affordable housing. From 6pm to 9pm, there will be food, refreshments, workshops, and insightful information about the state funded CalHome program and services geared to educate and motivate a wave of first-time homebuyers in greater Los Angeles.

Friday, June 16
6 - 9 p.m.

Magic Johnson Park
905 E. El Segundo Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90059

Registration is required and spots are limited. Light refreshments will be available.

H.E.R.E. not only kicks off our celebration of Juneteenth, but it is also one of the key events focused on advancing Black homeownership in the city. Nationally, there is a shortage of affordable homes for low-income families, and historic housing discrimination still affects communities. H.E.R.E. is breaking that mold as we know that homeownership is a key building block to bringing communities together, investing in stable, vital neighborhoods, and supporting the wealth, education, and health of individuals and families.

If you'd like to volunteer to help with the event, you may register online with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles.

H.E.R.E.'s informative programming encompasses:

  • First-time homebuyer education
  • Homebuyer counseling
  • Down payment assistance information
  • Free and low-cost home repair options
  • An opportunity to apply for a new Habitat LA home
  • And more!
