Current Builds

Current Reno: Elm Ave

This whole-home renovation at 601 Elm Avenue (at East Street) is almost
complete. The workforce for this project mainly consists of teams from County of Lambton – Ontario Works program. The dedication from these teams, along with our Habitat staff and numerous community volunteers has been tremendous. Watch for the Key Ceremony coming soon for the LaForge family.

Current Build: Murray St.

Our fifth partnership build with Lambton County Developmental Services…this time at 411 Murray Street in Corunna. This is our first “down-River” build and we are enjoying introducing Habitat to Corunna and the surrounding community. Slated for completion in October, Murray Street will soon be home to two more individuals in our community with developmental delays and their caregiver. Habitat Sarnia/Lambton remains grateful to Nadine and Doug Lazenby for the donation of the land for this build.

Building strength, stability & independence

2019 is another busy year for Habitat Sarnia/Lambton. We are currently getting closer to the completion of the whole-home renovation at 601 Elm Avenue (at East Street). It is slated for completion early Fall, and home to the LaForge family. 

In addition to completing that build, we are constructing our fifth partnership build with Lambton County Developmental Services…this time at 411 Murray Street in Corunna. This is our first “down-River” build and the introduction of Habitat to Corunna and the surrounding community has been a wonderful experience for all involved. Slated for completion late Fall, Murray Street will soon be home to two more individuals in our community with developmental delays and their caregiver. Habitat Sarnia/Lambton remains grateful to Nadine and Doug Lazenby for the donation of the land for this build.

The balance of 2019 will include another whole home renovation on Bright Street, Sarnia starting soon. We are currently pursuing the purchase of property in Forest and in Sarnia. And, of course- our appreciation to Petrolia. For a $1 they donated the lot at 4158 James Street for a Habitat build in their community. Watch this space for details. 

Please note: We are actively recruiting families for our Sarnia, Petrolia and Forest near future builds.

To the Ontario Works team for bringing this program together and to the Ontario Works volunteers who are always such a pleasure to welcome and work with, we say thank you.
