The blitz will begin with an opening ceremony at 6:45 a.m.
Construction will take place 24 hours a day and will include some 500 volunteers to build the homes in the Libby Lake Village Community off North River Road, San Diego Habitat for Humanity spokeswoman Ellen Immergut said.
Once complete, the community will include 20 single-family homes and a park, Immergut said. The homes range in size from 1,374 to 1,810 square feet with attached garages. Families have already moved into the 15 completed homes.
San Diego Habitat for Humanity has built 16 homes in the county using the blitz model since 2006, Immergut said.
To qualify for Habitat for Humanity's selection criteria, a family must demonstrate the need for improved housing, the ability to pay back a zero percent mortgage and must be willing to work with the organization for 250-500 hours before moving into a home.
