You can make a difference with Habitat for Humanity in High River, Okotoks, Black Diamond and Turner Valley

There is an ongoing need for affordable home ownership for families

The Foothills Region Report of Housing and Homelessness Needs Assessment, completed in 2013, identified that 25% of the population of Okotoks and High River were paying more than 30% of their income on housing, rising to 31% in Black Diamond.

Between 7% and 10% of these populations were identified as being in dire housing need - paying more than 50% of their income towards housing. Housing affordability is declining in most Foothills towns, and this lack of affordable housing can take a toll on families, health and education

In 2016, an Okotoks study on Housing and Social Needs Assessment of Low Income Earners recommended that the Town of Okotoks create a continuum of housing options in Okotoks including affordable and subsidized housing.

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.
