The impact of a Habitat home
What does it mean to be a Habitat homeowner? What does it mean to their families?
In this new episode of our podcast, available on October 8, you’ll meet two ordinary Canadian families who have extraordinary stories to tell. They are Habitat homeowners who’ve turned a hand up into new opportunities for their children and are actively paying it forward in their communities.
Patricia and Tony have been in their Habitat home in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador since November, 2016 and they say it's changed their lives, but the real benefit of being Habitat homeowners has been the effect it's had on their children. You will also meet Marjorie, an award-winning elementary school teacher in Winnipeg. She and her three children each contributed hundreds of volunteer hours towards the construction of their home but the giving didn't stop once they moved in. Volunteering has become an on-going family commitment.
Marjorie, Patricia and Tony are just two great examples of the Habitat mission in action – bringing communities together to help families build strength, stability and independence through affordable homeownership. Listen to their stories at habitat.ca/thepodcast beginning October 8!
