This summer, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter will be in Canada for Habitat for Humanity’s 34th Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project.
Thousands of volunteers will be helping to build alongside future Habitat homeowners right across the country, and Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta is excited to be part of this Canada-wide project to bring affordable home ownership to more families in need by dedicating 12 homes to the Carter Work Project - eight homes in Pineridge, and four homes in Bowness.
From July 9 to 14, designated as Carter Work Project week, volunteer groups will be building at our Bowness build site, and we'll be hosting a special CWP celebration at our Pineridge Home Dedication.
President and Mrs. Carter have traveled around the world with Habitat, to build and improve homes. Their time and effort helps to raise awareness of the critical need for affordable home ownership around the world.
Inspiring millions over the last three decades, President and Mrs. Carter have worked alongside nearly 100,000 volunteers in 14 countries to build, renovate and repair more than 4,000 homes.
The Carters will be focusing their efforts in Edmonton and Winnipeg, but the Carter Work Project will be a Canada-wide effort, with over 50 communities in every province and territory helping us reach our goal of building 150 homes. View the list of all the participating local Habitats.
Everyone in Canada has the right to a safe, affordable and decent place to live. Volunteers and donors are helping to build a more caring Canada – neighbours helping neighbours build homes that provide a safe and affordable foundation for a better life.
