During the summer of 2020, the Town of Okotoks did their own assessment on the state of affordable housing to create a plan moving forward for the town. This study states that 45% of renters are paying more than they can afford, with many people who work in Okotoks being unable to afford housing in the town. This report estimates that almost 50%, or 685 households, are experiencing unaffordability
The Habitat for Humanity home ownership program provides an alternative housing solution for hard-working Foothills families who struggle to save enough for a down payment, through offering a no down payment, no interest mortgage, that's geared to each family's income.
We have partnered with the Town of Okotoks, Anthem United and Morrison Homes to build a duplex in the new D'ARCY development in Okotoks.
We recently completed a land purchase in High River and will be breaking ground in 2024 with the build projected to be completed approximately one year after breaking ground. Visit this page in the future for more updates.
We are always looking for help with our casino, at trade fairs, and with a variety of fundraising events. Please get in touch f you're interested in learning more, and one of our committee members will connect with you.
