It is the beginning of the second day. Cyclists, Martine and Liz, are meeting for the first time on a bus shuttling them to the start of their 100 km plus ride. One will cycle towards Lake Louise, the other towards Kananskis. Later that day they will finish together hugging, with both of their lives changed.

“Catch me! Catch me!” shouted Anna as she leaped. Her sparkly shoes nowhere in sight, she darted across the front lawn. Smiling mischievously, she looked over her shoulder at her brother Harry as the bottoms of her frilly white socks picked up the green hues of the fresh grass.

As 2016 draws to a close, we reflect on what our community’s support has accomplished for families this year at Habitat for Humanity.

This year we completed 18 homes and began construction on 19 new homes in Southern Alberta. This means 63 children are enjoying this holiday season in a home they can call their own.

Give the gift of home for the holidays

We’re facing an urgent affordable housing crisis.

Right now, 1 in 5 Canadian families is spending more than half their income on housing costs alone. This leaves them living paycheque to paycheque, working multiple jobs to make ends meet, and sometimes, making the unthinkable choice between paying rent or putting healthy meals on the table for their children.

Family Story: Ali and Amina

Posted on Jul 28, 2016 1:19:38 PM
