Habitat for Humanity Red Deer celebrates start of four new homes

Houses being built in Blackfalds will become homes for seven adults and 12 children

Habitat for Humanity Red Deer celebrated the start of homes 43, 44, 45 and 46 in a ground-breaking ceremony in Blackfalds Thursday.

The ceremony at 5616 Vista Trail in the Aspen Lakes neighbourhood provided an opportunity to kick off construction and introduce the four partner families who will have a new home early next year.

“We look forward to working alongside our four new partner families as they take the next steps towards achieving their dreams of owning their own homes,” said Habitat Red Deer CEO Karen Vavrek.

“Without a hand up from Habitat for Humanity, the possibility of home ownership is out of reach for many families. In partnership with local communities, volunteers and donors, collectively we are doing our part to ensure that affordable home ownership is still attainable for Central Alberta families,”says Vavrek in a statement.

Once completed, the new Habitat homes will provide a place of their own for seven adults and 12 children.

Habitat for Humanity Red Deer Region is a registered charitable organization that is dedicated to helping Central Alberta families build better lives through affordable home ownership.

Habitat for Humanity Red Deer builds homes in partnership with qualifying low-income, working families through a no-down-payment, interest-free mortgage program.

The organization has been active in Central Alberta since 1994 and has since built 42 homes in the region.
