Now building in…
There is a growing need for affordable home ownership solutions for families.
Parents are working hard to provide for their children, but for many, saving for a down-payment is out of reach. Habitat for Humanity helps families enter the housing market by purchasing homes through our affordable mortgage – no down payment, no interest, and customized monthly payments.
Habitat has been active in communities across Mountain View County since 2003, and 13 local families have had the chance to purchase an affordable home in the communities of Carstairs, Cremona, Didsbury, Olds and Sundre.
We are currently looking for volunteers who want to use their skills to help families build strength, stability and independence through Habitat for Humanity’s home ownership program. If you have experience in one of these areas and want to help families in your community, we encourage you to put you apply for one of the regional committee volunteer positions listed below.
