Summer is a busy time at Habitat, with many of our major projects in full swing. We have a ton of highlights from all over southern Alberta to share with you. Here’s what you need to know from all of Habitat’s current projects.
Construction on the Pincher Creek duplex is underway, after we broke ground in early June. We are proud to be working with Mike Mayer construction – a local builder in the area, with community partners engaging in Build Days throughout the project.Read More
We are well into 2019, and we are looking forward to some exciting new construction projects this year.
Already this year, 8 of families have moved into their new Habitat homes in Okotoks and Calgary. We are projecting at least 17 more families will take occupancy throughout the rest of 2019.
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."

With 2018 coming to a close, it’s always nice to look back and reflect on how far we’ve come and how many people have been with us along the way.
There have been some incredible accomplishments, and it’s only possible through your support. Whether you’ve taken part in a Build Day, organized product at our ReStores, or made a donation large or small, every act of generosity is contributing to building a better community for us all.
What goes into a home? We could all name a few things – a lot of two-by-fours, a few windows, paint, and all those little finishing touches, of course.Read More
It’s always amazing to see a home come together.
I mean, that’s what keeps us glued to every HGTV show until the last three minutes! (You do that too, right?)
But seeing a home come together is extra amazing when there are literally hundreds of people behind it and it’s transforming the lives of families.
Edgar (pictured below) is one of these families. He bought his Habitat home in Capitol Hill last fall and moved in with his two daughters, Natalia and Sofia.
“I saw the houses built by Habitat and was amazed with the attention to detail that goes into them; from the interior details, to the care and thought put into the design so that families not only have a house, but LOVE their home.”

Because your support is at the centre of this success, we wanted to give you an update on where our builds are at.
Not because of the drywall and nails (although that’s fun too), but because of the way you have rallied behind these homes and these families, and because the impact you are having will last a lifetime.
So let’s get into it. But be warned, cute children and heart-warming quotes to follow.
Our current build projects in Bowness and Pineridge are providing home ownership for dozens of families in our community. This would not be possible without the support of our donors and volunteers. Because of you, these families can now build long-term strength, stability and independence.Read More
