[Video] Bowness Home Dedication

Posted on Nov 23, 2018 5:27:45 AM

On October 19th, we celebrated the completion of a four-plex in Bowness that will provide affordable home ownership opportunities to four Calgary families. We were joined by sponsors, donors, community partners and volunteers who have helped to make the project possible, along with the new Habitat homeowners.

"Today is a moment of celebration of our community coming together to help one another. You can see by the amount of people that are gathered here that the construction of these homes is no small feat."

-- Laura Dickson, Director of Families and Volunteers, Habitat for Humanity SOuthern Alberta
