Family Story: Susan

Posted on Jul 21, 2016 2:46:43 PM

Seven years ago I became a single mother of two and returned to the workforce feeling unequipped and unprepared.

As my children's primary caregiver, simply generating an income to support my family with the basic necessities and being present to shape and influence their lives was my top priority! While we feel blessed to have all our current needs met, there is sacrifice and struggle to make ends meet each month.

Family Story: Arshad and Sherin

Posted on Jun 29, 2016 9:46:37 AM

My name is Sherin and my husband is Arshad. We are a family of six all together; we have two girls and two boys.

We have seen a lot while we lived in Kurdistan Iraq, the house my family owned was destroyed by the horrible war that started in 1991. We ended up homeless, so my dad said we needed to get out ASAP. We fled to Canada while Arshad left for Sweden.

Sue and Nigel Teucher are regular weekly volunteers with Habitat for Humanity. Sue has been volunteering with Habitat in Calgary since May 2008. It was a life long dream of hers to give back to the community through Habitat, and her retirement allowed her the time to fulfill this dream. In 2013, after three years of semi-retirement, Nigel retired completely which also allowed him to donate some of his time to Habitat.

This is our final shoutout to everyone and every company who made Women Build such a great success!

Thank you, Carrington Lighting

Building homes costs money. A single home will cost us around $250,000, once you've included the cost of land, permits, materials and skilled labour. Fortunately, we have community partners who support our builds and lower our costs by donating their building materials to us.
