For the first time, two families in North Battleford will be official homeowners. They received their keys to their Habitat for Humanity Home today. This is the first project for Habitat for Humanity in North Battleford.
The province provided $130,000 in financial support to Habitat to help build the duplex through the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation.
“Our government is pleased to support Habitat for Humanity’s first build in this community,” said Battlefords MLA Herb Cox on behalf of Social Services Minister and Minister Responsible for Saskatchewan Housing Corporation Tina Beaudry-Mellor.
He adds, “Our government is committed to supporting families in the greatest need of housing, and it’s exciting to see two local families become proud new homeowners for the first time. We will continue to work with our partners to meet our housing challenges and keep Saskatchewan strong.”
“This project was driven by a dedicated group of local volunteers and donors. Together we can provide families with strength, stability and independence through affordable homeownership,” said Habitat for Humanity Saskatoon Executive Director Barb Cox-Lloyd.
Habitat for Humanity has 172 units that have been completed or are under construction in 13 communities around Saskatchewan with investment from the province. Twenty more units have been conditionally approved.
