Our goal this year is to help 22 families buy an affordable Habitat home. This represents over 60 children getting a safe space to play, study and socialize!
There is a direct relation between the quality and affordability of housing and a child’s ability to thrive.
Unfortunately, thousands of families in Southern Alberta find it impossible to provide these ideal conditions due to the increasingly high cost of living.
At Habitat for Humanity, we are determined to change that.
Nicole is a strong and resilient single mom and a born and raised Albertan. For two years, she has been living with Grace in a supportive community of Habitat homeowners that you helped create.
“The day we got the keys was the most amazing day."
"We opened the door to our new home, and I couldn’t believe it. 'This is our home,' I kept thinking. ‘I own this home.’ It was hard to wrap my head around it for a good few weeks!”
Grace now has a place to study and play with her friends; she even started a bike club with her neighbours and can’t wait for summer to start.
This includes the land, lumber, materials, and financing. It also helps us support families in home ownership and offer training and classes, like budgeting and home maintenance.
“Grace is so happy to have so many kids around. If there is a kid outside, you will find her outside as well! The social aspect has increased her confidence and taught her important life skills.”
As a participating charity in Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink, donations will be matched up to 50% making your gift go even farther.
