Habitat for Humanity and YouthBuild San Joaquin celebrated the finished construction, Saturday, of two new affordable homes in Stockton.

According to the San Joaquin County Office of Education, the homes are “sustainable, green home construction” equipped with solar panels and were built mostly by students in the YouthBuild San Joaquin program.

“That’s good for the families living in the home, it’s good for the environment, and it’s good for the students learning to build sustainable homes,” YouthBuild San Joaquin director Sheilah Goulart said in a statement.

The homes are part of project between the Office of Education’s YouthBuild and Habitat for Humanity that will build 19 new affordable homes in the Dream Creek neighborhood of Stockton.
