You can help a family build a better future!

September 30, 2016 - Sarnia, ON

Madison and Benjamin’s father died six years ago, and since then, their mom, Amie has done her best to provide for her children.  It’s been hard, though.  The home they live in is mouldy and in need of repair. Amie works hard to provide for her children, but knows that saving thousands of dollars for a down payment on a house is too big an obstacle.  She doesn’t want to live in a “bad neighbourhood” forever.  She dreams of giving her children a place of their own.  Becoming a Habitat homeowner will give Amie peace of mind, knowing that her children will be safe.  "I can teach my kids…gardening and to build things.” A Habitat home will give Amie, Madison and Benjamin “new hope and a new start.”  Your support will help Amie build a new life for her family as we build 2 semi-detached homes in Watford.  Please donate today.
