Sarnia, ON – This morning, Habitat for Humanity Sarnia/Lambton celebrated the groundbreaking of two new fully accessible homes in Sarnia..  Habitat Sarnia/Lambton went through a rigorous selection process to find two families for these homes.  Both families are multigenerational families. The first is a family of seven from Syria including a grandmother, mother, father and four children. The second family is a mother with four children and one grandchild.

Families are selected on the basis of need, their ability to repay

a no-down payment, no-interest mortgage, and their commitment to volunteer 500 hours [WR1] toward their home and community.

Through the National Housing Strategy’s National Housing Co-Investment Fund (NHCF), the

Government of Canada has invested $100,000 into these two homes in Sarnia, bringing

Habitat for Humanity one-step closer to creating 1,117 new affordable homes across Canada.
